The “Khiladi” actor made a sizzling announcement, back in March 2019, of his OTT debut, tentatively named “The End”, by walking on stage literally on fire to the audience’s amazement. During the event, head of Amazon Studios, Jessica Salke, expressed excitement and has said that the scale of the project is expected to be huge.
“The End”, an Amazon Prime web-series, was supposed to start shooting this December, with the lead actor joining them in January 2021. But the pandemic have caused all these plans to be negated and it will be a few more months before any suitable plan of action can be considered. This along with prior commitments to other projects for Akshay Kumar, the shooting has been postponed to the second half of 2021 (tentatively set).
On talking about the debut, Akshay Kumar confessed to have gone for a digital project after his son Aarav suggested it. The actor also saw this as a medium to connect with the youth and wanted to use this platform create something extraordinary. Working with breakthrough talent and being a part of disruptive & high quality story-telling are few of the things he aspires to do in every project he works in and the streaming platform is perfect for both.
With this in mind, he has been working closely with Vikram Malhotra (the producer of the new web-series) and his team from the concept level. The producer said they were using this time to work whole-heartedly on the project, making the necessary changes and adding nuances to the story line and key plot points.
It is said that the action sequences and storyline for the series has been beautifully crafted and we can’t wait for the action star to knock us off our feet on the digital platform just like he does us on his theatrical ones.
