Bollywood star, Suniel Shetty is set to make his debut web series in noir action-thriller, Invisible Woman.
After nearly three decades in the film industry, Suniel Shetty is poised to make his digital debut with Yodlee Films’ web series.
The Hera Pheri actor will star alongside Esha Gupta in the upcoming project directed by Rajesh M. Selva.
In a synopsis shared by Deadline, it follows the story of a cop who gets a chance to “clean up his past” when falsely implicated for the murder of an old woman, but his path to redemption of the soul is “littered with physical pain”.
“A web series today must have something to set it apart from the barrage of narratives that already exist, and the story of Invisible Woman immediately captured my attention. I am very happy to collaborate with Yoodlee to bring Invisible Woman to life and to make my debut in a web series as unique as this,” said Shetty in a statement.
“We have been very effective in addressing the demand of the new emerging digital audiences for wholesome entertainment content through our slate of feature films that have found place of favour in the many OTT platforms,” added Vikram Mehra, MD Saregama India, which owns Yoodlee.
“Films like the gutsy revenge drama Ajji, to the pathos filled National-award winning human drama Hamid, the heartland love-stories of Chaman Bahaar and Kanpuriye, to the urban social commentaries like Comedy Couple and Axone – Yoodlee Films has revelled in creating engaging narratives that don’t toe the conventional line.
Mehra continued: “Now we take the leap into the world of web series – a space that we have been itching to get into, given how consumption patterns of consumers have seen a tectonic shift to binge-watching these web-series from all over.
“We were waiting for the right project to come our way and Invisible Woman, headlined by the indefatigable Suniel Shetty , in an edgy action thriller, is just the right one to augur this transition,” he concluded.
The production studio took to Twitter to announce the news alongside three snaps of the star, adding that Yoodlee are “just getting started”.
