In the series, Lara will be seen as ACP Saumya Shukla.

“The show is a fun and entertaining story of a dysfunctional jodi and the chaos that ensues in their lives. The makers have carefully scripted the show to bring alive action and humor in a very entertaining way,” Lara said.

“One of the many reasons I chose to do the show is because I have never played a cop on screen and my character is trying hard to survive in a man’s world. She has very interesting dynamics with the people in her life and the more complex a situation, the more she thrives. She is nothing like me in real life,” she added.

The Hotstar Specials show chronicles the misadventures of two contrasting women, set in the backdrop of Mumbai, its chawls and crime gangs. Being described as a masala entertainer, the show also stars Rinku Rajguru.

Talking about making digital as well Hindi debut, “Sairat” star Rinku said: “It’s been a roller-coaster ride making my digital debut with ‘Hundred’ — a show that has equal measures of comedy and crime. I portray the character of Netra Patil – a bindaas Marathi mulgi who is trying to live her life to the fullest. What drew me towards the show is the way this character has been molded – people will see a different side of her in each episode.”

To this, Karan added: “The show will hopefully give people a hundred reasons to smile and uplift their mood in these unprecedented times – it’s just what the doctor ordered!”
