It would not be wrong to say that art knows no borders. Gone are the days when Tollywood was limited only to the Southern audience and Bollywood to the Hindi speaking market. Slowly and steadily, the fine line of fork is diminishing, as is the acceptance towards actors all over India. Much like the southern sensation, Vijay Sethupathi has an equally important role as Shahid Kapoor in the upcoming Amazon Prime Video web show.
We recently told you that Shahid will be making his OTT debut with Raj and DK’s new webcast. The duo who recently finished filming The Family Man 2 are ready to begin their new adventure. Read on for more details.
“It’s a plot about two men whose lives unexpectedly intersect. Nothing like this has been done in India for the OTT platform. Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi have parallel tracks. Their stories are separated for most of the plot, ”the source tells Bollywood Hungama. Raj and DK featured fellow South Indian star Samantha Akkineni in The Family Man. Samantha also has a side role to Manoj Bajpayee in The Family Man.
A few days ago there were reports that Vijay Sethupathi demanded higher pay than Shahid Kapoor. A source told Bollywood Hungama: “Shahid asked for a Rs. 40 crores more for the entire season, and his contract also mentions a hike in his pay if the show is renewed for another season. The plan is to make it three seasons now. “
The source added: “Vijay, on the other hand, did not put in a clause like that but immediately asked for a sum of around Rs. 55 crores. The two have roles on an equal footing, but Vijay is undoubtedly a Southern megastar, and the makers have agreed on the deal. He receives a much larger sum compared to Shahid, but unlike Shahid, his contract does not mention any hikes for the second season.
