Prime Video today announced that its highly anticipated original, Farzi, is all set to premiere on February 10 in India and in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. Farzi is the next series from the creators of The Family Man. Produced under Raj & DK’s banner D2R Films, the series also marks the digital debut of Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi.

The series also stars Raashii Khanna, Kay Kay Menon, Amol Palekar, Regina Cassandra, and Bhuvan Arora. Spanning eight episodes, Farzi is a fast-paced, edgy, one-of-a-kind crime thriller, with the director duo’s trademark humour, stitched around a clever underdog street artist’s pursuit to con the system that favours the rich. What ensues is a thrilling cat-and-mouse race between him and the law enforcement where losing is not an option. Along with Raj & DK, Farzi is written by Sita R Menon and Suman Kumar.

Creator duo Raj & DK said, “After a  successful association with Prime Video for The Family Man, we are thrilled to return with our next new series! It’s one of our favourite scripts, which we have created with a lot of passion and shot through the ups and downs of the pandemic. Basically a lot of sweat and tears have gone into making this series. After The Family Man, we challenged ourselves to come up with yet another exciting, unique world. We can’t wait for everyone to watch this series that’ll be out on Prime on February 10th.”

Taking to his social media handle, Shahid Kapoor dropped the first-look poster and wrote, "Con hai ye farzi?#Farzi #FarziOnPrime (sic)." The first-look poster has Shahid Kapoor in a rugged look and Vijay Sethpathi looking all dapper in a suit and holding a gun.

Aparna Purohit, head of Originals, Prime Video India said, “Farzi is a rip-roaring show which is rooted in the middle class milieu – its dreams, aspirations and anxieties.  Headlined by Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi, who will be making their digital debut with us, the show will redefine the contours of storytelling in the crime thriller genre. Masterfully crafted by Raj & DK, the series further cements our successful, long-standing collaboration with the maverick duo and features an eclectic choice of talent with pan-India appeal.”
