Gabbi comments, “Playing the role of India's first female detective in a show is an incredible honor. Charlie Chopra is a character that I have poured my heart into, and I can't wait for the audience to join me on this thrilling journey. It’s not often that such parts are written and to play a role etched into the title of the project is even more special. Not often do we see women in parts like these, and Vishal sir is truly someone who writes every character with such detail. I have always been extremely fond of his female characters and Charlie is no different. It’s my most ambitious role to date and I can’t wait to see how everyone receives Charlie as the brand new detective in town”.
