Rajeev Khandewal, aka Varun Awasthi of Zee's Time Bomb and former Sujal of Kahiin To Hoga is gearing to play the role of a tough cop in Sony's CID. “I liked the character when it was narrated to me and agreed to be a part of it. I play the character of an ACP who has just come out of the police academy unlike some others who make their way up by ranks,” says Rajeev.      

So how does this young ACP make his entry on the show? “Well, I have just begun shooting. So I don't know how my character will make an entry. But, It goes on to show that after Shivaji Satam's exit, I will take charge of the team. And that comes as a shock to the team members. They find it difficult to have a young ACP lead their team,” he says.

Rajeev Khandelwal's appointment as ACP happens in the wake of ACP Pradyuman's (played by Shivaji Satam) suspension from office.
