When we think of Rohit Shetty, the first visual is that of a flipping or a flying car. The other image that comes to mind is a high-octane action drama centered around a cop.
Rohit Shetty brings both to the OTT table with a new face – Siddharth Malhotra (of ‘Shamshera’ fame).
As per reports, Siddharth and Shetty are collaborating on a cop action-drama series for Amazon Prime. Rohit Shetty made the announcement of the series on his social media handle. He shared a picture of Siddharth’s back in cop uniform with blurred images of a line of Scorpio police vehicles.
Aling with the picture, Rohit Shetty shared a caption, “Action begins tomorrow at 11:00 AM!”
The series is said to be debuting on Amazon Prime Video and will have around eight episodes. The title of the series has not been revealed yet, nor has a release date been mentioned.
This web series will be jointly directed by Rohit Shetty and his trusted Chief Assistant Director, Sushwanth Prakash. Currently the shoot for the series is said to be happening in Mumbai.
This will mark Siddharth Malhotra’s debut in the web series space. He joins a long list of popular Bollywood actors who are foraying into the digital space with action packed high on entertainment series as the current entertainment trend is heavily leaning towards original content on web platforms.
Whether this web series by Rohit Shetty is a standalone mini-series, or the first season of a multi-season action drama remains to be seen.
Besides this, Siddharth Malhotra will soon be seen in ‘Yodha’ and ‘Thank God’. Rohit Shetty in the meanwhile, is all set to bring Ranveer Singh to the big screen in yet another new avatar in ‘Cirkus’.
