Pratik Gandhi shares his views on caste system 

Scam 1992' star Pratik Gandhi is all set to impress the audience in upcoming Disney+ Hotstar show 'The Great Indian Murder'. He will be seen in the role of a CBI officer in this Tigmanshu Dhulia directorial and while the show is essentially a murder mystery, it also explores the caste system which is prevalent in our society.

In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Pratik shared his views on this societal evil. He said, "The caste system is so deep-rooted in our society for all processes. Beyond a point, it is difficult to realise how wrong it is. Even our regular discussions, the way work has been distributed, the way our surnames are given, everything (involves caste system)."

Talking about how the show deals with casteism, Pratik said, "The issue of caste is deeply rooted in Indian society. Be it north, south, east, or west, it is one of the biggest demons we are all fighting with. A lot of systems and processes are designed in such a way that the entire caste system is difficult to get away with. I can only wish we get rid of these things as fast as we can. This is very well adapted in the screenplay and was part of the story, the book as well. Tigmanshu Dhulia understands these things very well. He comes from the heartland and you will enjoy all these nuances in the story."
