Are you willing to sacrifice your own life and freedom to save your family? The extremes to which the Singh family goes, to battle the grip of crime, forms the central tenet of ‘Tabbar’, SonyLIV’s latest thriller. A family’s seemingly normal life is upended when a mysterious bag shows up at their door. A retired police constable is now forced to break all boundaries of the very laws he once vowed to enforce. With an incredible cast led by Pawan Malhotra, Supriya Pathak, and Ranvir Shorey, ‘Tabbar’ promises to be a must watch crime-thriller.
Gagan Arora essays the role of Happy, the studious, diligent, and committed son to Sargun and Omkar, played by Surpiya Pathak and Pawan Malhotra, respectively. However, as his family’s life is toppled due to an unfortunate incident, he must transform himself. Presenting a shift in perceptions about Punjabi characters, Gagan Arora said “Punjabi characters in any movie or show are often stereotyped as happy go lucky or funny. However, Tabbar gave me a chance to break this stereotype.”
‘Tabbar’ is Gagan Arora’s second project with SonyLIV. Offering a glimpse into his character and the shooting for the series, Gagan Arora spoke about his transition as an actor who went from playing romantic roles, to the new enthralling and intense character in ‘Tabbar’. He also spoke about how Tabbar gave him the chance to work with Pawan Malhotra, Supriya Pathak, and Ranvir Shorey. “More than anything else, I got to learn the craft from such great actors. I hit the jackpot working with such a legendary team.”
Directed by Ajitpal Singh, and produced by Ajay Rai, Tabbar is a JAR Pictures series. Written by Harman Wadala and Sandeep Jain, the show’s music is produced by Sneha Khanwalkar.
