Shahid Kapoor unveils the reason behind making his OTT debut with a Raj and DK directorial

Shahid Kapoor has been a leading face in the Hindi film industry for a long time, having done movies across different genres. The actor is now set to make his OTT debut, with a project helmed by the directing team of Raj and DK. The actor has now opened up about how the upcoming series came to life. 

Talking to Hindustan Times, the actor said he is excited to work on a project in a different format, where people will get to see him through the course of eight episodes. 

“I had loved Raj and DK’s The Family Man 2. They called me for a film, I asked if they had a show for me. They went ‘really?’, and I said yes! It’s exciting to collaborate with people who are at the top of their game, and in India, they are the best of the best,” the actor said. 

Kapoor said that he has been working for almost two decades now and has been watching and enjoying OTT content. He added that he likes to do what he enjoys and that if a film or show consumes something, he will look for similar material. 

Shahid Kapoor will be seen in Farzi, directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K, who has helmed The Family Man on Amazon Prime Video. Apart from Kapoor in the lead, the show also features Vijay Sethupathi, Raashi Khanna, Kay Kay Menon, Regina Cassandra, Zakir Hussain, Bhuvan Arora, Amol Palekar and Kubbra Sait. 

Shahid Kapoor was last seen in Jersey, the Hindi remake of Nani’s Telugu movie of the same name. The actor will also be seen in a film helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
