Bombay's underworld comes alive once again in Bambai Meri Jaan in Farhan Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani's latest Web series.

What makes it unusual is that it pits father and son against each other.

Kay Kay Menon's honest cop is horrified when his son Avinash Tiwary becomes a gangster.

Set to premiere on September 14, the lead players tell us just what it's all about.

How does Kay Kay get it right *every* single time?

The actor tells us the secret behind what makes him so good in the roles he plays.

"As an actor, I was shitting bricks. I didn't know if I had the capability to pull this off," says Avinash Tiwary, who played Manju in Sajid Ali's Laila Manju and Chandan Mahto in Neeraj Pandey's Khakee: The Bihar Chapter.

Kay Kay's wife Nivedita Bhattacharya plays his onscreen wife in Bambai Meri Jaan, and she's thrilled to be working with him again after many years.

"I was trying to impress him a bit," she says, laughing.

"The women in the show are also very strong and powerful, and a badass character is always delicious," Kritika Kamra says.

The actor, who's always played 'the good girl' explores her dark side here.

Amyra Dastur, on the other hand, brings 'a sweet innocence' to her character.


"It's taken five years from the page to the screen," says Rensil D'Silva, who has written films like Rang De Basanti, Aks and Student Of The Year.

It was an emotional moment for Director Shujaat Saudagar (who had directed Rock On 2 earlier), and he says his "knees are shaking", his "heart is racing" and his "mouth is dry".

Shujaat tells us just why this moment is very emotional for him.
