Tisca Chopra seems pretty excited and equally confident of her role as Mira, describing which she mentioned it as one of the best roles of her career and stated to a statement given to Scroll.in, “This is one of those characters that is hash tag goals. She is my hero. Her conflict is – you save your family, or you kill. One doesn’t come across such a conflict very often in a character.”
Ronit Roy plays the role of Prithvi Singh, a police officer and seems a bit tight-lipped about his character as he mentioned quite a little about his role, saying, “Nothing is what it seems to be in the series,” he said. “And that’s all I can say about him.”
The series, Hostages has been written and directed by Rotem Shamir and Omri Givon. The Israeli version of the thriller featured Ayelet Zurer as Yael Danon and Jonah Lotan as police office Adam Rubin.
