After much speculation, director Raj Chakraborty admitted that he will soon be debuting on a national platform with a web series. OTTplay reported earlier that the director will be working on a national project soon. As per industry sources, Raj will remake his Parineeta, which features Subhashree Ganguly and Ritwick Chakraborty in the lead. It will be made into a web series for Disney+ Hotstar. Meanwhile, Raj’s Dharmajuddha is all set to hit the theatre on August 11. Besides Subhashree, the film also features Swatilekha Sengupta, Ritwick Chakraborty, Parno Mittra, Soham Chakraborty and others. 

When asked about his national project, Raj told exclusively to OTTplay that it will happen soon. “Yes, something will happen soon. But what will happen, who will be the part of the cast will be revealed once things are finalised,” he said. According to reports, Raj will soon be reaching out to the national audience with his Hindi remake of Parineeta for Hotstar. Talks are reportedly on with Sai Pallavi. However, the director remained tightlipped about it. 

Raj is known to be a South cinema lover. The director thinks that in the South, the respective industries don't shy away from experimentation. Talking about the South cinema craze, Raj said, “South works as a united industry. Traditionally, they make good films. They have respect for mainstream and larger-than-life cinema. In Bengal, people, especially a group of critics and film fraternity members, look down upon mainstream films. I feel it is important to make successful mainstream films,” he said.   

Talking about the current South versus Bollywood debate, Raj said that it is a momentary thing for the Hindi film industry. “Maybe there is a monotony in Bollywood and that’s why there are a few unsuccessful films. It is a bad patch and Bollywood will soon overcome it,” he said.
