 Odisha-based OTT platform ‘Kanccha Lannka’ has announced its upcoming web series ‘Barang 1999’

Bhubaneswar26/9/22: Odisha-based OTT platform ‘Kanccha Lannka’ has announced its upcoming web series ‘Barang 1999’ which will reportedly showcase the high-profile sensational case of Anjana Mishra which took place in 1999.

The makers of the web series said the story and content is based on information received from court and police station. It showcases the political system, justice delivery and police action, they added.

However, Mishra said that she had no idea about her case being used as a web series story. “I came to know about it from a newspaper today and was shocked as I was not informed.”

“They neither held any discussion with me nor sought my permission. I warn them not to make the web series. If they do so, I will take legal action,” she added.

Responding to it, filmmaker Akshaya Parija said that they will not be painting anyone as a protagonist or an antagonist in the web series. “It is an original story and the audience would be able to relate to it. The power of police and judiciary and the faith of people in them will be showcased in the web series,” he said.“Let it first be made and then you can have an opinion about it,” he added.

According to sources, the web series written by Saroj Mahapatra and conceptualized by Dilip Bisoi will delve into the struggle of Anjana Mishra after the incident, the political scenario of the state during the period and people’s reaction to the incident.

Comprising nine episodes, the web series will be shot at the incident spot to lend it a realistic touch. The series, ‘A Woman’s fight changed Odisha politics forever’ is slated for March 2023 release.
