We don’t give the army a second thought in our day to day lives, let alone the credit they’re truly due. And am I fortunate or unfortunate? I can’t say; that I donot come from an army background. But the opportunity of my character on CodeM opened my eyes and shook me in my boots, to what our armed forces go through every day of their lives. And I may not be all the way there but it has been enough to realize that it takes selfless love towards their nation, spending time away from their families and their supreme sacrifice for US!! Working in some of the world’s toughest battlefields, most often in extreme conditions to secure our comfort and that we may function as usual and be at peace in our homes. Over the years, we have all witnessed our soldiers’ unflinching determination, bravery, courage, excellency and best skills to do what is right, their enthusiasm to go the extra mile and to put India and Indians before themselves. And what’s more, they keep going back without a second thought to serve our motherland with the motto “Service Before Self”. I confess, the thought has occurred to me on and off but has always stayed distant; far from the truth and intensity of it all. Coz why dwell so long on anything that has nothing to do with you, Oh but it does! And for me, thankfully, it’s better late than never so the least I can do is say – Oh Soldiers! The real heroes. You have done more for our country than all leaders put together. I don't have words to thank you for all you have done and are still doing to keep us going.
Starring Jennifer Winget, Tanuj Virwani, and Rajat Kapoor, among others, Code M is one of the most successful shows on Zee5 as the show has all the elements of a runaway success.
Jennifer Winget who is excited about the announcement of the second season of the show also made her digital debut with the role of Major Monica Mehra in Code M . Jennifer said, “I am both thrilled and humbled at the same time to see the audience’s appreciation for Code M and all our performances. We gave it our best to reel in a gripping show that would get you hooked. Of course, to receive so much love in my very first web series is very encouraging. Needless to say we’re hooked too and I am excitedly diving into my character the second time around. We will be giving it our all. The intensity will only peak, I can promise you that.”
While Tanuj Virwani, who plays the role of Angad Sandhu in the show, shared, “I think my character in Code M is a prime example of what one can achieve solely based on mutual trust and faith in each other’s creative vision. The team really let me mix things up and add my own nuances to Angad. It’s fun to break away from our preconceived notions of what we expect an individual to be based on their choice of career. Also the subject matter of the show was very serious in nature for the most Part. I think Angad’s Vibe gave the show some levity. It also helped in humanising an otherwise cut and dry Monica to some extent. The response from critics and the audience alike has been overwhelmingly positive and I am excited to take the series and my character’s journey ahead.”
The success party was well attended with actors like Chandan Roy Sanyal, Harleen Sethi, Aalekh Kapoor, Kashyap Shangari, Madhurima Roy and Gautam Ahuja, among many others
