Shahid Kapoor is all set to join the list of Bollywood actors who have tried their luck on the digital medium. The actor is set to make his digital debut with Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s yet-to-be-titled quirky thriller, that’ll stream on Amazon Prime Video.
Shahid, who liked the idea and the story, had been waiting to work with The Family Man creators Raj and DK for sometime now. He says he couldn’t think of anyone else but the duo to venture into the digital space.
In a statement, the Kabir Singh actor shared, “I have been keen to collaborate with Raj and DK for a while. My favourite Indian show on Amazon Prime Video is The Family Man. I couldn’t think of anyone better for my digital debut than them. I loved the story idea when I first heard it and since then it has been an exciting ride so far.”
The untitled web series is Raj and DK’s second project with Amazon Prime Video after The Family Man. They are happy to have signed Shahid for the series which is their “favourite script” and has been “a labour of love” for them.
