After the resounding success of Prime Video’s crime drama Bambai Meri Jaan, Kay Kay Menon, the lead actor in the series, has expressed gratitude and pride over the wide appreciation it has received. Menon, who portrayed the character of Ismail Kadri, a conflicted father trapped between his principles and his son’s descent into the world of crime, said, “I am humbled with the love and support from audiences for ‘Bambai Meri Jaan.’ It’s incredibly heartwarming to see viewers’ reactions to my character, Ismail Kadri. This is a testament to the collective dedication of our team, co-actors, and creators who worked tirelessly to bring this epic saga to life. The positive reviews, comments, and the love we’re receiving are a reflection of our hard work paying off.”
‘Bambai Meri Jaan’ has emerged as a must-watch for its gripping storyline, exceptional performances, and the way it delves into complex moral dilemmas.

The series explores the classic, universal battle of good versus evil.
