ZEE5 released the teaser of its upcoming original series, State of Siege: 26/11 and it builds the plot of the series showcasing how the terrorists were determined to kill mercilessly and create upheaval. It then goes on to throw light on the might and valour of the National Security Guards (NSG) commandos and how they geared up to combat the ghastly terror attack. The series revisits the attack from the prism and perspective of the NSG Commandos. It is set to bring to the forefront the lesser known facts and the many challenges the authorities faced and how they made use of the best available resources.
The teaser clip offers an insight into how the ten terrorists entered India through waterways and had come with the sole intention of bringing Mumbai to its knees. In the sequences that follow in the video, we are shown how Arjan Bajwa and Arjun Bijlani lead the NSG troops into the rescue operation and fight the militants to restore peace. From being air-dropped onto the locations to entering zones with absolutely zero visibility and knowledge, the NSG undertake every risk that comes their way, fighting odds to save the day.
