A few years back Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon had been down to feature in ‘Farzi’, a film that would have been Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s directorial debut, however this didn’t come to fruition and the film got shelved. Until now. There is news that the film could be revived and it could be the web-series that Shahid Kapoor will be marking his digital debut with.
As reported on Box Office Worldwide, the directors are looking to create their first show to be streamed on an OTT platform titled ‘Sunny’ and in turn this would act as a stepping stone for Kapoor to make his digital debut too. A source revealed, “The plan was to call it Gavar. But not many know that Sunny is actually a reworked version of the same Farzi script that Shahid had okayed years ago. The only two things that have changed in the script are – Vijay Sethupathi’s character has been added and Shahid’s fees have increased manifold. In fact, the script has been worked upon to convert the 150-minute film into a taut ten-part series for the first season.”
The source further added, “There were two projects that Raj and DK were trying to make – the other one being a film with Shah Rukh Khan. That plan did not work out and most likely, the director duo will jump on to the third part to The Family Man, right after Sunny is complete. Meanwhile, they also might be producing Go Goa Gone 2, and it needs to be seen if they will reunite with Dinesh Vijan on Stree 2 because we hear, the makers are planning to go on floors next year with the second part in the horror comedy franchise.”
Along with Kapoor and Sethupathi, South Indian star, Raashi Khanna is also a part of the cast.
