New Delhi: It seems like Shahid Kapoor is living up to the name of his upcoming Amazon Original series, ‘Farzi’. In a quirky video, shared by Prime Video, Shahid’s wife Mira Rajput is seen engaging in a fun & humourous banter with her brother-in-law, Ishaan Khatter. The duo, who has received multiple gifts from Shahid, is seen praising the actor for the nice gesture. However, a twist in the tale appears when they discover that the gifts are ‘Farzi’. When the duo confronts the actor, he cheekily responds that the gifts are sent by Sunny and not him. Well, clearly someone is living the Farzi life.
Shahid Kapoor is all set to make his digital debut with ‘Farzi’. Created by Raj & DK, who are known for their edgy thrillers, the series has already piqued the interest of the audience.
Packed with signature humour, director Raj & DK’s Farzi is an eight-episode crime thriller. The series revolves around Sunny, a small-time con artist, who finds himself pulled into the dark while planning the perfect con. However, a ferocious and unconventional task force officer has made it his mission to rid the country of the threat he represents.
Earlier talking about working with Raj & DK, actor Shahid Kapoor had said, “They really allow the actors to come out and express themselves and sometimes they are really worried with what we are doing with the shots.. But they let you do what you want to do and I felt very free. I also feel that this show has been made in a very fluid manner. It’s very contemporary the way we shot the show, the way the characters have been written and developed allows every actor to really like dig-in deep because there is enough meat there if you really go looking hard for it and it’s very democratic. I think they let everybody bring what they feel and then they kind of final it together to make it what they feel is right. I had a lot of fun and I felt very free. I think they felt very nervous like what’s up with him but I was having a great time.”
Along with Shahid Kapoor, ‘Farzi’ features an ensemble cast including talented actors Vijay Sethupathi, Raashii Khanna, Kay Kay Menon, Bhuvan Arora, Regina Cassandra, and Amol Palekar in pivotal roles.
Produced by D2R Films, the series will stream in India and across 240 countries and territories starting February 10, 2023.
