Mumbai: We often hear of a common phrase, ‘Police walo ki na dosti achi hai na dushmani’ (It’s neither good to be friends or an enemy with a policeman). However, when the two come together, their relationship gets even more exciting. It is this theme that Hindi general entertainment channel (GEC), The Q is set to explore in its first TV original - Crime Aur Kanoon, that was announced on Tuesday, further to the channel’s launch on DD FreeDish.

Crime Aur Kanoon is The Q’s first original crime fiction show that will premiere on television on 21 August.

The show will include several modern age crime stories. With renowned actor Kinshuk Vaidya as the host, it will take viewers through strange and intriguing cases with every episode.
