While the concept is being worked on, we hear that the cast for the pilot episode, which he will be shooting next week, is currently being finalised. When we called the director to cross-check, a surprised Gurudatha, told us, “Yes, I am trying my hand at a web series, but I can’t reveal anything further.”
When prodded further, he adds, “I am in talks with the Netflix team, who have liked the concept. I have to now present a 20-minute episode. If all goes well, I can go ahead with the project. A Kannada production house approached me for this. The announcement will be done from their end. Once everything falls in place, we will reveal the title and cast.”
But why a web series? “For my next project, I didn’t want to do anything ordinary. Especially with Kannada films making the right noises across the world, I thought it right to work on a project like this. I have a few scripts which I am discussing with producers. But again, I can talk about that only once the deal is sealed,” he says.
