There is a saying that if you have achieved success, you sure would want to duplicate it. That has been the case for Disney+ Hotstar. After grabbing 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 a ten-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 point in his career where he has done too many romantic roles and is now looking out to try something new. Kapoor will be seen next in Ayan Mukherjee’s fantasy drama Brahmastra and Yash Raj Productions’ Shamshera. It doesn’t come as a surprise if he agrees to do this assassin drama.
While Ajay and Hrithik play safe with their projects, Ranbir’s assassin drama is also worked upon by the team of Hotstar. As per the reports, Hrithik will star in the Hindi adaptation of The Night Manager and Ajay in Hindi adaptation of Luther. Kapoor’s project with Hotstar got confirmed 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. The film is still getting delayed due to the restrictions in the shooting. On the other hand, there are also reports of his new movie with Shradhha Kapoor which will go 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.
