Mumbai, 6th January 2023: Farzi, a highly anticipated Prime Video Original starring Vijay Sethypathi and Shahid Kapoor, will debut on February 10.
The legendary writers of ‘HIT’ and ‘The Family Man’ are back with their newest series, ‘Farzi’. Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi make their online television debuts in the show, which is produced by Raj & DK’s D2R Films company. Bhuvan Arora, Raashii Khanna, Kay Kay Menon, Amol Palekar, Regina Cassandra, and others play significant roles in the show.
Farzi, an eight-episode criminal drama is a fast-paced, edgy, unique crime thriller that revolves around a cunning street artist’s attempt to game the system that rewards the wealthy. He and the police engage in a fascinating game of cat and mouse in which giving up is not an option. Farzi was written by Sita R Menon, Suman Kumar, and Raj & DK.
Raj & DK, a creative team, said, “We are excited to be back with our newest series following a hugely successful partnership with Prime Video for The Family Man. It’s one of our favourite scripts, one that we worked very hard to write and shot through the pandemic’s highs and lows. In essence, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into creating this series. We set a task for ourselves to create yet another fascinating, distinct world after The Family Man. On February 10, Prime will launch this series, and we can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
Aparna Purohit, head of Originals at Prime Video India said, “There couldn’t have been a better start to 2023. The riotous show Farzi is based on the hopes, concerns, and desires of the middle class. The series, which features Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi and marks their digital debuts with us, will expand the limits of criminal thriller storytelling. The series, which Raj & DK masterfully created, solidifies our productive, long-standing partnership with the unconventional team and showcases a diverse range of talent with a pan-India appeal.”
