Actor Angad Bedi last seen in Soorma as the driving force and elder brother to Diljit Dosanjh based on the real life story of Sandeep Singh is all geared up to be seen as a lawyer in his next. Ekta Kapoor's next web series based on real life courtroom drama, The Verdict, narrates the story of Nanavati murder case one of India's biggest and high profile court cases.
Angad will be seen playing the real life character Karl Jamshedji Khandalavala, the defence lawyer on the K M Nanavati vs State of Maharashtra case. Whereas actor Sumeet Vyas will be seen playing the role of eminent lawyer Ram Jethmalani facing Angad on-screen in this interesting court drama series that once shook the nation.
This would be the first time Angad will be seen donning the cape of a lawyer on-screen. He took this as an opportunity to play the role as a matter of fact lawyer Khandalavala is a legend, a Padma Shri awardee, an author, he was a connoisseur of art and music. Karl Jamshedji Khandalavala was a very flamboyant and India’s top criminal lawyer. So much so that the man never lost a case in his life. 15 top lawyers refused to fight the open and shut case only then did he take it on and turned the verdict around and won the case. Karl was also an ex-Indian Air Force man who also served as a judge. Was a family man but in his professional field he fought every case as if it was his last. He never lost.
A character with such a diversity and multiple shades in his life, Angad wouldn't have let it go and is all set to portray Karl for the first time onscreen in The Verdict. "To portray a real life character is the toughest job for an actor because one never knows which direction to tke. Karl Jamshed Khandalavala has been my most challenging yet emotionally draining part I have ever played or prepped for. To play your age is much easier. Here I play a man who is very flamboyant and is very sure of himself. The prep was the most challenging part. I read a lot about the law set in the 1950s. I spent time getting the body language correct."
