Says Sippy, "Khan No 1 is an episodic fiction show that seeks inspiration from true-life cons. It revolves around fake weddings to online shopping frauds, and even Bollywood-related cases. Rajesh plays inspector Khan, who unravels these stories for the audience.

He combines humour and drama." Sharma is excited about his first small-screen outing. "I don't think any medium is big or small for an actor. Inspector Khan is an interesting character and the audience will be able to connect with him."
