Operation Parindey, a ZEE5 Original film starring Amit Sadh, Rahul Dev, Ameet Gaurr, Kunal Kumar, Aakash Dhaiya, and Rucha Inamkar, is an action thriller film based on one of the most controversial jailbreaks in the history of India. It is directed by Sanjay Gadhvi of the Dhoom fame (Dhoom 1 and 2) and written by Tejas Dhanraj.
#The24HourChase is inspired by true events of prison breaks post-surgical-strike in India but has a fictional approach in its narrative. The story moves at a rapid pace through a series of unexpected twists and turns that will take the viewers deeper into the actual events surrounding the jailbreak.
Rahul Dev as Monty Singh – The MasterMind.
The fierce look and making of Monty Singh, the character essayed by Rahul Dev, was put out on social media platforms on 30 January 2020. The actor looks unrecognizable and extremely intriguing in it. Monty Singh, in the film, is the mastermind behind one of the most daring and controversial prison breaks in India. If danger had a face, it would be Monty Singh from #OperationParindey.

If danger had a face, it would be Monty Singh. #OperationParindey premieres 28th February, only on #ZEE5. #The24HourChase #OperationParindeyOnZEE5 Directed by @sanjaygadhvi4 @theamitsadh @rahuldevofficial @gaur_amit @kuunalkummar @aakashdahiya002 @ruchainamdar @nikchat69 @tejas_dhhanraj @finalcoastproductions @fluenceindia @niveditabasu
For Monty Singh, Rahul Dev wears prosthetic make up to look the part. He transforms into a Sardar. The film is shot extensively in Bathinda (Punjab) and Mumbai. The character is much older in age and experience which is highlighted through the wrinkled skin and dark under-eyes. With an extremely long and grey beard, he looks charming, yet ferocious. The turban is also different from the usual Sikh pagdi. He emerges out as dangerous and manipulative in his intentions of planning the prison break.
In an interview with ZEE5, Rahul Dev commented, “I enjoyed having the aura of a Sikh sardar. In that get-up, speaking in Hindi felt a little underwhelming. But I’m a Punjabi and I love speaking the language as well. It comes to me naturally. Acting as a Sardar and delivering in Punjabi helped me immerse myself into the character of this criminal genius.”
Meet Monty Singh!
