Filmmaker Kabir Khan is ready to direct his first web series which will link to Subhash Chandra Bose’s ‘Indian National Army’. Khan’s upcoming web series is titled as ‘The Forgotten Army’. The web series will be a reformation of his earlier documentary which had the same title.
The Deccan Chronicle reports Khan spilling some beans about his upcoming web series to an entertainment news portal. “An international cast will be a part of this series even though it is predominantly in Hindi,” Khan was quoted as saying.
He went onto say that “The actors will speak in the language they are comfortable with and it will be made on a mega budget, even bigger than my films.”
Rumour has it that actor John Abraham will be essaying the lead role in this web series. The official announcement of the star cast is expected to be made soon.
Khan who has many hits like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ (2015), ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ (2012), ‘New York’ (2009) and ‘Kaabul Express’ (2006) will direct the Ranveer Singh starrer ‘83’. Singh will be seen stepping in the shoes of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev in the film.
‘83’ is slated to release on the 5th of April, 2019.
