Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, also known as Raj and DK, are still riding on the success of their web series, ‘The Family Man’ (2021). Starring Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Sharib Hashmi, the action comedy became a super hit. The popular two seasons made the pair some of the most sought after filmmakers in the country. And as a result, more details on their their forthcoming projects in 2022 are now being released in the web series world.
Two web series from the pair are expected to be out this year, reports Bollywood Hungama. A source gave details on one of the projects by saying, “It was earlier titled Ashwalinga but will now be called Gulkanda. It stars Kunal Kemmu, Pankaj Tripathi and Abhishek Banerjee and is said to premiere on Amazon Prime. It is a period comedy set in the times of Kama Sutra.” It is directed by Rahi Anil Barve, of ‘Tumbbad’ (2018) fame.
However, tragedy struck on 23rd April last year when news came in that one of their main stars, Amit Mistry, suddenly passed away due to a cardiac arrest. The source added, “Amit Mistry had shot some portions of the series already before his untimely demise. The team of the series soon began looking for an actor who can fit the part. Their search ended with Gaurav Gera. He has stepped in and would play the part, which was originally supposed to be played by Amit.”
Gera shot to fame with the role of Nandu in the memorable TV serial ‘Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin’. He has a huge fan following on social media.
As well as ‘Gulkanda,’ Raj-DK will also release another web series starring Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi, with reports saying the project is titled ‘Fakes.’
