The upcoming Netflix series is director Raja Krishna Menon and actor Vijay Raaz’s second project together for the first time after 2009.
Vijay Raaz, an Indian actor and director is considered one of the underrated actors in Bollywood. His character in the film Monsoon Wedding was his turning point and he received many more offers after that.
We have just discovered that Raaz will be playing the lead role in this new untitled Netflix original – a dark comedy about the Godman culture where he will play the new age spiritual guru and the concept will make Indians question their blind belief and devotion!
This is not Vijay Raaz’s digital debut as we have previously seen him as jauhari in Amazon Prime Video’s Made In Heaven, Faiyaz Bhai in Netflix’s Chopsticks and recently on Amazon Prime’s Gulabo Sitabo.
There’s no doubt on the fact that the concept of OTT has provided a number of actors (who otherwise play side roles in Bollywood movies) with a larger platform to showcase their talent and get the recognition they deserve. Web series and digital releases have turned out to be a blessing in disguise for actors like Vijay Raaz who are gifted with abundant talent and now, the Airlift director Raja Krishna Menon has provided him with the opportunity to play a lead.
The project is yet to disclose its title but we can expect its release around October 2020 on Netflix. After a commendable performance in all his previous projects, we can’t wait to see what Raaz offers in this one!
