‘Jodha Akbar' fame Ravi Bhatia recently did back to back web-series and music videos. Now, the actor is all set to turn producer for the upcoming web series titled 'Shukla'.
The series is roughly inspired by the life of Shri Prakash Shukla, who was killed in an encounter by UP police in 1998. Bhatia will be seen playing the role of a gangster.
TellyChakkar.com exclusively got in touch with Ravi to know more about the project, he said, "The series is about a shrewd gangster and a contract killer. I am really excited since I have never played such kind of a role before. The best part is I am producing it."
He further added, "We shot the series in the exotic location of Satna, M.P to give it a realistic feel. It is a great project for me and I am really looking forward to releasing it as soon as possible."
The series was shot before pandemic, and was planned to release on a popular OTT platform, but ended up with a mess. Ravi said, "Things don't always go as planned. The team was feeling hopeless after we were cheated by the OTT, where it was supposed to release. Furthermore, I took the charge as a producer and re-edited the entire series. I have pitched the series on various platforms, and got an amazing response from most of them."
The series also stars Shafaq Naaz, Arham Abbasi, and Arun Kumar. Interestingly, Bhatia's 'Halala' co-star Shafaq Naaz will be playing his love interest in the series yet again.
We’re sure Ravi will rock as a producer too!
