STATE OF SIEGE: 26/11 – FROM THE NSG LENS
A few years after the 26/11 terror attack shook the financial capital of the country, several films attempted to portray the rather grim and harsh reality of the fateful day. A few films also realistically portrayed the series of tragic events.
India’s largest video streaming platform, ZEE5 will soon premiere ‘State of Siege: 26/11’ based on renowned author and journalist Sandeep Unnithan’s book – Black Tornado: The Three Sieges of Mumbai 26/11.
The eight-episode series unravels the untold stories and is a true to account narrative of the various events that turned into the prolonged terror siege of Mumbai on 26th November 2008.
“The nation will witness unheard incidents from the 26/11 attack. ZEE5’s State of Siege: 26/11 will give you a perspective as to how it all ended in just 60 hours, crises and challenges faced by our unit. Also, this show will give you the answer to everyone who thinks why the commandos were late to reach for the mission,” says Colonel Sundeep Sen the second-in-command combating terrorists at Nariman (Chabad) House.
