Shahid Kapoor is all set to make his digital debut with Amazon Prime Video's upcoming crime thriller, Farzi. The series features an ensemble cast including Vijay Sethupathi, Raashii Khanna, Kay Kay Menon, Bhuvan Arora, Regina Cassandra and Amol Palekar and is created by Raj & DK, who are known for their edgy thrillers like The Family Man franchise.

Shahid Kapoor, who recently opened up about working with Raj & DK, says, “They really allow the actors to come out and express themselves and sometimes they are really worried with what we are doing with the shots. But they let you do what you want to do and I felt very free."

He adds, "I also feel that this show has been made in a very fluid manner. It’s very contemporary the way we shot the show, the way the characters have been written and developed allows every actor to really dig-in deep because there is enough meat there if you really go looking hard for it and it’s very democratic. I think they let everybody bring what they feel and then they kind of finalize it together to make it what they feel is right. I had a lot of fun and I felt  very free. I think they felt very nervous like what’s up with him but I was having a great time.”

Packed with their signature humour, Farzi is an eight-episode crime thriller, which revolves around Sunny, a small-time con artist, who finds himself pulled into the dark while planning the perfect con. However, a ferocious and unconventional task force officer has made it his mission to rid the country of the threat he represents.

Farzi also marks the web series debut of Vijay Sethupathi. Produced by D2R Films, Farzi will stream in India and across 240 countries and territories starting 10th February 2023.
