Bollywood actors might have shared a different opinion on doing a web series or project. But today, with the boom of digital avenues, there’s a new age renaissance that has set in and several top A-list stars are jumping onto the OTT platform. Now, Shahid Kapur is the latest one to join the camp.
A source shares, “Shahid has signed a big digital series. Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK will direct it. After tasting super success with The Family Man especially on the web, several OTT giants were in talks with the director duo to design a project for them. . It’s a thriller that will have the quirks of Raj and DK infused in it. They approached Shahid for the same and he loved it. He has signed on the dotted line.” This, in all probabilities, might be Shahid’s big web debut.
Shahid has to finish shooting for the Jersey remake and then, he might begin filming for the series before he moves on to Shashank Khaitan’s Yoddha. He was also in talks with Guneet Monga for a remake but there’s no movement on that front as of now. . Raj and DK, on the other hand, are developing few other projects for the web and are also supposed to direct Priyanka Chopra in Russo Brothers’ Citadel.
