Jha said that Pareeksha is based on the experiences of former DGP of Bihar, Abhayanand. In a statement, he said, “Shri Abhayanand is an IPS officer and educationist who, while serving as the police chief in Bihar’s Naxal-infested areas, came across kids from those villages who were so bright with the native wisdom that they inspired him to begin coaching them to crack the IIT-JEE - the toughest exam which the young students must clear to be able to join one of the best educational institutes in the country. Their success had a great impact in the crime-infested badlands of Bihar and made a difference.” “I felt compelled to tell this story and we have found a wonderful streaming partner in Zee5, a platform which will give this subject the reach it deserves,” he added.
