The upcoming web series “Inspector Rishi,” featuring Naveen Chandra in the lead role, has generated significant interest. Supporting roles are filled by Sunaina, Kanna Ravi, Srikrishna Dayal, Malini Jeevaratnam, and Kumar Vale. Directed by Nandini J.S. and produced by Sukh Dev Lahiri under Make Believe Productions, this horror crime story is set to premiere on Amazon Originals. The web series will be available for streaming from the 29th of this month in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi. The announcement was made during a press meet held in Hyderabad today.

Actor Krishna Dayal shared his experience working on “Inspector Rishi,” where he portrays a forest ranger named Satya. He expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “This is an interesting web series. You will definitely like it. It’s coming to Amazon Prime Video in the next two days.”

Kanna Ravi, who plays the role of Inspector Ayyanar in the series, praised the director Nandini’s vision and the unique narrative of the ten-episode series. “Most of the shooting was done in the forest, and each character has a well-defined arc. Naveen Chandra’s portrayal of Inspector Rishi and Sunaina garu’s role as a forest officer are impressive. Don’t miss ‘Inspector Rishi,'” he said.

Director Nandini J.S. spoke about the broad appreciation of diverse content by the Telugu audience and the global reach of Telugu cinema post-Baahubali and RRR. “Initially, we thought of making ‘Inspector Rishi’ only in Tamil. However, after completing it, we decided to release it in all five languages,” she explained. Nandini, who has a long-standing interest in horror movies and books, crafted the series to cater to horror enthusiasts without offending any caste, religion, or belief. “The story of this series is meticulously designed to ensure wide appeal. Following the trailer’s release, we received a tremendous response and positive feedback. We hope for a good reception in Telugu as well. Please watch the series and recommend it to your friends. Thank you for your support,” she concluded.

Heroine Sunaina said, “I heard the script of the web series ‘Inspector Rishi’ while making the film ‘Raja Raja Chora’ during the pandemic. As soon as I heard it, I was determined to be part of this series. I got a significant role in this story. I portray a forest ranger. This web series has desirable elements for all audience sections, combining horror, thriller, romance, action, and comedy. It was a pleasure to work with Naveen Chandra. He is a talented artist, engaging in diverse projects. Director Nandini gave us a lot of freedom during the shoot. There was a fun atmosphere on set with Kanna Ravi and Srikrishna Dayal. ‘Inspector Rishi’ is very interesting. Be sure to check it out. Regarding doing regular films in Telugu due to consecutive projects in Tamil, I am not receiving any suitable offers here. If you don’t make a good film, you will face criticism. I want to do good movies, regardless of the language in which I am acting,” she said.

Hero Naveen Chandra said, “Today is Ram Charan’s birthday. I’m sending him my wishes. I’m happy to have acted with Ram Charan in ‘Game Changer.’ He is a great actor. It’s been a while since I’ve done horror content. When I heard the story of the ‘Inspector Rishi’ web series, I felt that it contained all the emotions like horror, thriller, suspense, action and I wondered why not do this series. Do you feel lucky to get such a character? Not only in this story, but my character also has many layers. This will be a special series in the horror thriller genre. I worked for about 100 days on this series. After coming home from shooting every day, it felt like the ghost in this series appeared in the bedroom, because I had a lot of combination scenes with the devil. I would like to thank the production house, Make Believe, for entrusting our director Nandini with such a big project. This is a 10-episode series. At the end of each episode, there is curiosity about what will happen next. Thanks to the superbly talented team, VFX team, and makeup team. After the release of the ‘Inspector Rishi’ web series trailer, many people sent me messages. It is scary, but they provided feedback saying that they will watch this series. Kajal saw the trailer of our series. She shared through social media that it looks very good. Kajal said that she will definitely watch this series. I want everyone to watch the ‘Inspector Rishi’ web series on Prime Video on the 29th of this month,” he said.
