The first-of-its-kind initiative will start from 15 May

Mumbai: Dangal will now stream detective and crime fiction show Crime Investigation Force (CIF) exclusively on its Facebook page by leveraging its reach on social media.

Originally aired on TV in September 2019, CIF will now stream one episode daily at 10 am starting Friday, 15 May 15, 2020. Viewers can catch CIF by simply logging in to Facebook and navigating to Dangal’s Facebook page -

CIF features Aditya Srivastava and Dayanand Shetty in lead roles. The series will showcase how the team solves criminal cases with the help of intelligence and clues. The series also stars Ansha Syed, Dinesh Phadnis, Piyush Mehta, Narendra Gupta, Avdhesh Kumar and Abhay Shukla.

On streaming Crime Investigation Force with a digital-first approach, a Dangal spokesperson said: “There has been a significant surge in consumption of content over digital mediums since the lockdown. Audiences are constantly on the lookout for quality content. While we continue to keep our viewers entertained on television, we believe it is only apt to keep our audience on digital platforms engaged and entertained as well. The Crime Investigation Force had a very strong connect with viewers when we launched it on TV in 2019. The show has an interesting mix of stories that is sure to keep viewers engaged. We are sure that the series will attract viewers on digital media as it did with viewers on TV.

Keeping its viewers entertained during this lockdown, Dangal recently brought back some of its most iconic shows including Ramayan, Chandragupt Maurya, Mahima Shani Dev Ki, Baba Aiso Varr Dhundo and more. The channel will now keep its digital viewers entertained with the launch of CIF on May 15, 2020 exclusively on the Dangal Facebook page.
