In the Hindi translation of the American show ‘Ray Donovan,’ actor Rana Daggubati will appear onscreen for the first time with his famous uncle Venkatesh. ‘Rana Naidu’ is the title of the series.
The action drama will chronicle the lives of Rana Naidu, who is known in Bollywood as the go-to guy for everybody who has a problem. Suparn Verma will co-direct with Karan Anshuman, who is the showrunner and director.
Speaking about the series, Rana Daggubati says: “It’s lots of special firsts for me. Working with my uncle Venkatesh and the first with Netflix in long form storytelling that’s completely different from what both of us have ever done in our careers. I’m extremely happy to be with a crew and a platform that knows this the best. It will be challenging and new and definitely is going to be fun. Looking forward to filming soon.”
“I cannot wait to work with Rana (Daggubati), we are going to have a blast on-set and this show is the perfect project for us to work on. I am a huge fan of Ray Donovan myself and the entire team is pulling in all the stops to ensure we do justice to it,” added Venkatesh.
ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group has licenced the format rights to the show, which will be available on Netflix.
