Naga Chaitanya

Actor Naga Chaitanya is set to make his OTT debut with Prime Video's Telugu series "Dhootha". Described as a "supernatural horror" show, the announcement for "Dhootha" was made at the Prime Video Presents India event, hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, on Thursday. "Dhootha" is directed by Vikram K Kumar, who has co-written the show with Dondapati Venkatesh, Poorna Prajna, Sripal Reddy, and Naveen George Thomas.

The cast also features "Uyare" star Parvathy Thiruvothu, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Prachi Desai and Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam. As an artiste, Chaitanya said his aim is to always reach out to as many people as possible and with the show he wants to get maximum exposure.

"With a platform like Prime Video, we get that. It's not pan India, it's across the world. I can't sit through even five minutes of horror.

When Vikram told me this one's a supernatural horror thriller, I knew exactly what that feeling was like. That's quite a challenge for me as an actor," he said. ALSO READ: After Allu Arjun, Naga Chaitanya fined for violating traffic rules: Report
