We could say that actors Vivek Dahiya and Arjun Bijlani are a little late to jump onto the web-series bandwagon, but given the project that they chose to make their digital debut with, we are definitely not complaining. The television hunks will soon come together with Zee5's series based on Sandeep Unnithan's book Black Tornado: The Three Sieges Of Mumbai 26/11, which details the happenings of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, which held the city hostage for three days. Qayamat Ki Raat Actor Vivek Dahiya is Proud to be a Part of 'Operation Terror: Chabbis Gyarah' a Web Series Based on 26/11 Terror Attacks in Mumbai
Arjun Bijlani will be playing the role of martyred SAG (Special Activities Group) Commander Sandeep Unnikrishnan. who when his colleague was shot, kept the terrorists pinned down so that his colleague could be rescued. Sandeep was shot from the behind and later on succumbed to his injuries. He was also awarded India's highest military honour Ashoka Chakra posthumously, for his valour on the field.

#BlackTornado @arjunbijlani essays the role of the NSG commando who saved several hostages and was a true hero who led the entire mission. He shares, “I am truly excited to make my digital debut with ZEE5’s Operation Terror – Chhabbis Gyarah. When I read the script, I was taken aback with the many incidents that took place during 26/11 and I still did not know about. The script is extremely layered and audiences are sure to be engaged from the word go. As an actor, it is important to keep reinventing yourself and my role is noteworthy and challenging.” . Can't wait💜💜💜 #nikhilmanikrishnan
Vivek Dahiya will be seen in the role of Captain Rohit Bagga, whose back story is that he is on leave during the 26/11 attacks, but on finding out about the same, he immediately calls his senior and reports back to duty.
Vivek's look from the web-series was recently revealed on social media and in all that tactical gear, Vivek Dahiya definitely looks like a commando ready to go for war.

In an earlier interview, Vivek was quoted as saying, "Being on a set in an army officer's uniform is one thing, but the show has been made with so much attention to detail that for me my respect has grown towards our army officers and commandos after actually stepping into their shoes. Their selflessness -- to put your country above everything including yourself and your family, and to live and die for your nation -- needs an unbelievably strong heart. The character of Captain Rohit Bagga has helped me expand my horizons and come closest to what it's like to be in a battlefield, and do whatever it may take for the love of your country."
