Akshay Kumar, who is gearing up for the release of his ambitious period drama Kesari, has made yet another grand announcement yesterevening and revealed that he will be a part of an upcoming Amazon Prime Original. Akshay entered the venue in his own style - he performed a live fire stunt on stage.
Speaking at the event, the actor said, “Action is within me, I call myself a stuntman first and then an actor.”
Akshay added about the upcoming series;
“My Son Aarav wanted me to work on the digital platform and here I am.” Titled The End, the web series will air on the digital platform Amazon Prime. It’s going to be a fun and entertaining story. It’s fiction yet a human story. I can’t talk much about it at the moment. But it will have me doing a lot of action,”.
Akshay also added;
“I have always believed in bringing innovation to my work and throughout my career, have tried to tell unique stories, work with break-through talent and be part of disruptive and high-quality story-telling. Together, Abundantia and I have created some of my most memorable roles in films like Baby, Airlift and Toilet-Ek Prem Katha and their passion towards their films and projects is incredible.
From the very concept of the show, I am working very closely with Vikram and his team as they create this compelling and highly intriguing story. I can’t wait to start rolling for this action-adventure series that will be Amazon Original for global audiences. The digital world excited me and I am delighted to make my streaming debut with this show. And if I were to make a small confession here, it was my son Aarav who suggested that I make my digital debut as that’s what the youth is hooked onto. On this medium, I want to create something extraordinary and connect with them.”
Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are already working in digital space while Shah Rukh Khan’s company is producing a Netflix show ‘Bard Of Blood’.
Yesterday, Akshay shared the first poster of Rohit Shetty’s next directorial venture 'Sooryavanshi' in which he will be seen playing a cop. “From Rohit Shetty’s police universe, get ready for the fire-packed ‘Sooryavanshi’, releasing on Eid 2020,” Akshay Tweeted.
