CID stars ACP Pradyuman and Daya return in viral ad, evoking nostalgia among millennials | Trends

CID, an Indian drama that began in 1998 and ran until 2018, was a part of many people’s childhood. The drama, based on the characters ACP Pradyuman (played by Shivaji Satam), Daya (played by Dayanand Shetty) and Abhijeet (played by Aditya Srivastava), showed how they solved complex criminal cases and got justice for the victims.
