Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon were reportedly in talks with Raj and DK a few years ago to star in their directorial debut, Farzi. Months later, news broke that both stars had dropped out of the film, prompting its producers to put it on hold. Returning to the year 2021, we have an interesting update on the subject.
Raj and DK are launching a new streaming show titled Sunny, which will be Shahid Kapoor’s first entry into the digital world.
Revealing some details on the highly awaited show, a source says, “The plan was to call it Gavar. But not many know that Sunny is actually a reworked version of the same Farzi script that Shahid had okayed years ago. The only two things that have changed in the script are – Vijay Sethupathi’s character has been added and Shahid’s fees have increased manifold. In fact, the script has been worked upon to convert the 150-minute film into a taut ten-part series for the first season.”
“There were two projects that Raj and DK were trying to make – the other one being a film with Shah Rukh Khan. That plan did not work out and most likely, the director duo will jump on to the third part to The Family Man, right after Sunny is complete. Meanwhile, they also might be producing Go Goa Gone 2, and it needs to be seen if they will reunite with Dinesh Vijan on Stree 2 because we hear, the makers are planning to go on floors next year with the second part in the horror comedy franchise,” the source adds.
Sunny also features prominent South Indian actress Raashi Khanna in a key part, in addition to Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi. Her debut in Hindi will be in the upcoming series, which will launch on Amazon Prime Video.
