Special Ops 1.5 The Himmat Story: ‘It’ll be for 3 episodes of 1 hour each; Special Ops 2 comes out in 2022,’ says Neeraj Pandey [Exclusive] | Bollywood Life



Neeraj Pandey and his team at Friday Filmworks dropped a huge bomb earlier today when they announced that Special Ops 1.5: The Himmat Story — a spinoff on the immensely exciting and extremely popular Special Ops that release last year — is in the works. The web series, which will also see the light of day on Disney Hotstar, will revolve entirely around Kay Kay Menon‘s back story as a R&AW agent and how he uses his wits and intelligence for a different operation before metamorphosing into THE Himmat Singh and leading the team that saved India from a deadly attack, which we relished in the first Special Ops.

Opening on the delicious curveball that he and his team threw at us in an exclusive chat, Neeraj Pandey said, “The reception we got for the show (Special Ops 1) was the main reason, and we were not looking to far ahead in any case. We were waiting for part one to come out and see how people react to it. But once it came out, and once we found ourselves in this situation of creating a franchise, then this idea came about to do a Himmat story because we’ve not been able to tell a lot about him (in the first part). So we thought, let’s do a 1.5 — it’ll be for 3 episodes of 1 hour each. There’s not going to be a season 2. It’s only going to be a 1.5 with 3 exclusive episodes.” Also Read – Special Ops 1.5 The Himmat Story: Neeraj Pandey announces 1st ever spy universe on OTT with spinoff on Kay Kay Menon’s character

Upon quizzing him further if the new development meant we’d have to wait longer for Special Ops 2, with all the main character returning, Neeraj Pandey graciously indulged us by saying, “No, Special Ops 2 comes out next year in 2020.” Also Read – #BLBestof2020: Pankaj Tripathi, Arshad Warsi, Pratik Gandhi — who’s the Best Web Series Actor of the year? — vote now
