There is a saying that if you have achieved success, you sure would want to duplicate it. This has been the case for Disney+ Hotstar. After grabbing the major releases of Bollywood’s 2020 year, they are looking to go deep to cement their place in the OTT market. Reports suggest that Disney+Hotstar has offered a big project to Ranbir Kapoor which is going to be be 10 part assassin series.
After Ajay Devgn and Hrithik Roshan seems like Ranbir is another actor from the industry who would venture into this market. Ranbir is at that time of his career where he is done doing repetitive roles and is looking to try something new as we will see in his upcoming movies which includes the fantasy drama by Ayan Mukherjee – Brahmastra and Yash Raj Productions’ Shamshera. So it will not come as a surprise if he agrees to do this assassin drama.
While Ajay and Hrithik and going to play safe with their projects as it is being reported that Hrithik has been approached to star in the Hindi adaptation of ‘The Night Manager’ and Ajay in Hindi adaptation of ‘Luther’. Ranbir’s assassin drama will be an original series which is currently being worked by the team of Hotstar. They confirmed this and said that
The discussions regarding the project began only weeks ago and RK was the first actor that came into everyone’s mind. But they’ll wait for the official confirmation by the actor and then only will be going forward.
This statement is a sensible one from the Hotstar team as Ranbir Kapoor is busy for almost one and a half year as his big budgeted fantasy drama is on its final stages of production but is still getting delayed and restrictions in shooting also is not helping the Brahmastra team. On the other hand reports of his new movie with Shradhha Kapoor will be going on floors in November.
So if we see, then this big budgeted project in all likelihood will be going on floors in mid 2021. Even if not, the makers prompted out that the assassin drama is based on exotic locations from all over the world and would require a hectic schedule of shooting in many countries. Now seeing the different restrictions in different countries, it will not be possible by the makers to pull off the shoot in one go. Hence one can only wait for everything to go back to normal ASAP.
