Amazon Prime Video has announced that production of Raj and DK’s new web series, which will be headlined by Shahid Kapoor, has begun. The thriller series would mark Kapoor’s digital debut.
The yet-to-be-titled series will be Raj and DK’s second show with Amazon Prime Video, after the widely acclaimed, ‘The Family Man’.
Back in October, there were reports that Kapoor will be collaborating with the director-duo, but the actor has finally signed the dotted line now.
Speaking about the web series, Kapoor said in a statement:
“I have been keen to collaborate with Raj and DK for a while. My favourite Indian show on Amazon Prime Video is The Family Man. I couldn’t think of anyone better for my digital debut than them. I loved the story idea when I first heard it and since then it has been an exciting ride so far.”
Raj and DK called the upcoming series a true “labour of love”, adding that it is their “favourite script” till now.
The creators were also all praise for Kapoor and said:
“We found a perfect match in Shahid! He was always our first choice for this series. We hit it off immediately, and have been on the same page from the first time we spoke. Shahid is an exciting actor to watch and work with! The intensity he brings to his roles is amazing.”
