Amazon Prime Video's upcoming original series 'Mumbai Diaries 26/11' is a much-awaited series for audiences owing to its stellar cast and for showcasing a different side of the 26/11 terror attacks.
Reminiscing being a doctor's son, Mohit Raina shared with mid-day.com, “I have been very lucky as a kid. My father was a doctor. And he was posted on the outskirts of the villages of Kashmir. At the end of the day, when he used to come back, every night there was a single knock or more on the door of my house because of an emergency and he had to go back to see somebody or the other."
The actor also mentioned, "He was always eager and ready even at the end of the day also to go and meet the patients and help them. Whenever he would come back, I was fortunate enough to understand from his body language whether he was able to save the patient or help them in his capacity. So I guess I was fortunate enough to see and get inspired by the passion of the frontline workers from day one. And that has probably been showcased in the series as well which I am very fortunate enough to be a part of.”
