Neerja released and the film went on to become a massive hit with the audiences loving the film. Since then, everyone has been waiting for Ram Madhvani’s next. As we all know, he is working on his mega-project Bodhi Dharma: Master of Shaolin web-series exclusively for Amazon Prime. The director is working along with friend Prasoon Joshi on the story. As it is a mega-budget and mega-project, both are taking their sweet time with the writing process.
The show was supposed to start rolling at the beginning of this year but now we hear that it will start rolling by end of this year. A source close to the team reveals, “Ram wants to first be happy with the entire draft and then start shooting. Pre-production is happening simultaneously. So once the script gets a green signal from Ram, we will start rolling."
Meanwhile, another source close to the series reveals, “Prasoon Joshi is also the CBFC chief and CEO of an ad firm. He has to juggle between many things. However, at the end he doesn’t allow his writing to get affected by his work so he is taking his time to finish the series.”
Bodhi Dharma will be one of the costliest and big-budgeted series by Amazon in India yet and if the series does well, it will be extended to three more seasons. Which is why the makers are taking time to write the best.
Bodhi Dharma: Master of Shaolin will trace the story of a prince warrior in the 6th Century who founded a martial arts and shaolin temple in China.
