MUMBAI: ZEE5, the largest producer of originals in India, aims to continue its leadership position in original content in 2020. The platform has announced Sexpionage, an anthology of films produced by Azure Entertainment (Sunir Kheterpal) and co-produced by Hussain Zaidi & Jaspinder Kang for Gold Mohur. The film is on a scripting stage and will go on floors in early 2020.

Sexpionage is written by renowned writers Bilal Siddiqui, Vibha Singh, Rahul Patel & Amit Agarwal, and Vivaan Shah. The stories revolve around spy agents stuck in a high-stakes spy game between two nations. Sexpionage is embellished with shocking exposures, betrayal, international espionage, and sexual favours to save each other.

Hussain Zaidi said, “My partner, Jaspinder Singh Kang and I, are proud to be associated with AZURE Entertainment to bring this four-film spy thriller series, on the common theme of Honey Traps. I am extremely excited about collaborating with a top OTT platform like ZEE5 for these films.”

Azure Entertainment producer Sunir Kheterpal said, "This is our maiden venture with Gold Mohur and we are looking forward to creating these exciting movies based on years of research by Mr. Hussain Zaidi. Azure Entertainment has time & again sought creative collaborations on high-concept and content driven stories and this new venture in the digital space reinforces the same ethos."

"Co-producing with Sunir for this beautiful and special project makes us so grateful. ZEE5 coming up with such real content makes the audience witness some of the great unheard stories which need to reach out to people. I'm very excited about this association", said Hussain Zaidi.

ZEE5 India programming head Aparna Acharekar said, “Sexpionage is an amalgamation of interesting stories conceptualized by renowned writer Hussain Zaidi. It will consist of four spy thriller films and we have a fantastic team working on it. We are certain it will perform well on our platform. It is for our audiences, especially for those who love thrillers.”

Sexpionage is Azure's first foray into content development & production for the OTT platforms for which it has joined hands with Gold Mohur, which is a newly formed content curation company owned by Hussain Zaidi, the celebrity crime journalist & writer and his partner, Jaspinder Singh Kang.
