Since last year during lockdown, the OTT viewership has increased manifolds. Because of theatres getting shut, many Bollywood films took direct-to-digital release. With this, many Indian web series featuring actors like Jaideep Ahlawat and Manoj Bajpayee in lead roles have been getting huge acclaim.
No wonder, more and more actors, whether the supporting actors or leading actors have started making their debut on the digital platforms including A-listers like Shahid Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan who would be soon seen in web series. Now, we are hear that Grand Masti actor, Riteish Deshmukh is all set to make his OTT debut.
If reports in Peepingmoon.com are to be believed, then Riteish Deshmukh is making his OTT debut with a Netflix film, which is touted to be a social comedy. The report suggests that Riteish would be playing a larger-than-life character and the makers are trying to rope in a top South actress alongside Deshmukh.
The film will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh who had previously helmed the box office hits such as Sonam Kapoor’s Khoobsurat and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Veere Di Wedding. Screenwriter Rajat Arora, the big name behind films like Kick, The Dirty Picture, Ek Villain, and Once Upon A Time In Mumbai has written and is also producing the film. Rajat Arora is making his debut as a producer with this Netflix original film.
