Actor Mohnish Bahl, who will soon be seen on Hoshiyar“, says hosting a TV show based on crime is “emotionally draining. This is not the first time that Mohnish is associated with a crime-based show. He earlier featured in “Savdhaan India”, which was a retelling of real life crimes.

Talking about working in such shows, Mohnish said in a statement, “It’s emotionally draining because what you’re dealing is negative incidents. The previous crime show I did was based on true stories, so it was even more emotionally draining.”

“It shows the process leading up to the crime which is averted by the alertness of the protagonist. So, this is a very positive take on an otherwise negative umbrella of crime, where you can avert the crime. It becomes very interactive for me as a host as well for the audience. That’s what the intent of the channel and the creative team is — to bring awareness in the day-to-day living manner so that people become more alert and aware. And then, citizens don’t let things pass by!” he added.

Mohnish says he signed up for the show because he likes the concept. The actor hopes it helps in creating awareness about various types of crime and helps in reducing the crime rate in the country.
