Rohan Sippy to debut on TV with Discovery Jeet’s Khan No.1

MUMBAI: Indian film director Rohan Sippy will don the hat of a producer for the first time on Indian television with crime show Khan No 1 to be showcased on the upcoming entertainment channel Discovery Jeet.

Sippy has actor Rajesh Sharma in company as a co-debutant on TV who impressed with his acting skills in blockbuster Bollywood movies such as Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and many more will be seen playing the title role of Inspector Khan.

Sippy said, “In each of these unique episodes, Sharma is the host and investigator, Inspector Khan, who unravels these stories for the audience. His presence and persona combined humour and drama, creating a fun and intriguing mood for the show.”

Inspired by true events, Khan No 1 sheds light on scams and cons committed by con-men/women. It is a window into the minds and lives of people who have chosen crime as a solution to their problems while Inspector Khan is the fictional central character–a crime hunter, an experienced cop specialising in solving scams/cases.

Discovery Jeet, which will launch in February 2017, will bring together Discovery’s unmatched storytelling and real-life entertainment through larger-than-life stories aimed at inspiring millions.
