In battles won, and wars lost, there are many lives claimed regardless of the victor. But not all wars are won on the battlefield and not all soldiers fight. What about the invisible, unhindered men and women who risk their life and limb to protect the honor of their king, country, and home?
This Republic Day, The EPIC Channel, India's first segmented Hindi entertainment channel, pays humble tribute to the Indian spies who fearlessly and silently protected the freedom of the nation with a special marathon of its most watched show, Adrishya- true stories of Indian spies.
Starting 26th January at 12 PM, experience the incredible stories of spies such as Ravindra Kaushik, who established a false identity and enrolled in the Pakistani army to gather critical intelligence for India.
