In a bid to make it true to life, the makers of the web series have decided to shoot the scenes at the real locations of the incident.

“Our intention is not to target any political party or individual. The content is being prepared as per information received from court and police station,” said Ajay Padhi, the director of ‘Barang 1999’.

The web series would portray the struggle of the victim after the incident, political scenario of the State then and reaction of people of the State, reports said.

The web series has been written by Saroj Mahapatra and conceptualized by Dilip Bisoi.

On the other hand, the announcement has triggered a row  asAnjana has warned the director and producer not to shoot the web series.

“I came to know about it through newspaper, today. I was shocked as I had no prior information. 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 move the court of law for action against them,” said Anjana.
