The head honcho of Roy Kapur Films, Siddharth Roy Kapur must clearly be on could nine after lining up an interesting arsenal of projects for him to work on. One such venture which made headlines quite recently was the Rakesh Sharma biopic, titled Salute, which will now reportedly have the king of hearts, Shah Rukh Khan essaying its leading man.
But, if you thought that having a mega project like Salute is all that Kapur is currently focusing on, well, think again!
While it has been established that Reliance Jio Infocomm and Roy Kapur Films are coming together to create a set of original video series, Siddharth Roy Kapur is leaving no stone unturned to produce path-breaking content. Here’s some exciting piece of information for the audience who are eagerly waiting for Kapur to make his debut in the digital space!
Apart from employing a dedicated team to create appealing content, he has also roped in film directors like Rensil D’Silva, Nikkhil Advani, Raja Menon, Habib Faisal and Ashim Ahluwalia for individual projects. The producer has also brought on board talented writers like Rajesh Devraj, Ritesh Shah and Renuka Kunzru to name a few.
Touted as Jio Originals and slated to release in the last quarter of this year, the first set will include 10 shows. Though the content is in Hindi, the genres vary from crime, thrillers and historical shows, to drama, romance and interactive reality.
