Director Rohit Shetty is riding high on the success of his last release Simmba, which turned out to be a blockbuster. After spreading his magic on silver screen, the director is all set to take the digital plunge. Rohit Shetty confirmed that he will be producing an action thriller web series which will be mounted on a huge scale.
"I am producing one web series. It's on a big scale, that's why it's taking time. We have been writing it for nearly two years now. But by next year January we will start shooting. It's an action thriller," Shetty told reporters. The director was speaking on the sidelines of HT Most Stylish Awards.
Currently, the filmmaker is gearing up to go on floors with his next, "Sooryavanshi", featuring Akshay Kumar as a cop. There were reports that Katrina Kaif has been approached to star in the film but Shetty said they are in the midst of finalising the female lead. "We will start the film next month, in May. It's a long journey. We are still finalising the female lead. It should be finalised in a day or two.
