The OTT space worldwide has seen a major boom ever since the coronavirus pandemic forced us all into lockdown. Shahid Kapoor is just one of the few top Bollywood actors who’ve sought out an OTT release besides Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, and Abhishek Bachchan.

The webspace which was seen as the domain of actors Radhika Apte, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Manoj Bajpai, Pankaj Tripathi, and Saif Ali Khan has seen a major overhaul in the past eight months.

Earlier it was reported that actor Shahid Kapoor was going to make his OTT debut with director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK.

“After tasting super success with The Family Man especially on the web, several OTT giants were in talks with the director duo to design a project for them. They have finally been signed on by a leading digital platform for an original show which will have all the essential ingredients that a usual Bollywood film has. It’s a thriller that will have the quirks of Raj and DK infused in it. They approached Shahid for the same and he loved it. He has signed on the dotted line,” a source had told Pinkvilla.

Now, Times of India has reported that Kapoor will star opposite actress Malavika Mohanan in his web debut.

Kapoor was last seen in the blockbuster hit, Kabir Singh which raised serious questions regarding physical and emotional abuse in relationships. However, Kapoor’s performance was praised.

The actor has also recently wrapped up the Uttarakhand schedule of his sports drama, Jersey, and will now be shooting in Chandigarh.
