Fresh off the success of Telugu magnum opus Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Tamannaah Bhatia has signed a brand-new web series, marking her grand debut in the digital space
A crime thriller with the working title “The November Story” produced by Ananda Vikatan Group, the web series which will be streamed on Hotstar, which is female-oriented at its’ core, is directed by debutante Ram Subramanian who has assisted the veteran director Ramkumar in Raatchasan, and has gone on floors in late November 2019 in Chennai.
Revolving around a father-daughter relationship, the plot entails many spine thrilling twists and turns as a daughter essayed by Tamannaah trying to salvage the reputation of her criminal father essayed by GM Kumar of Avan Ivan fame.
Tamannaah Bhatia states, “The OTT platform is also the new playground for accomplished actors like myself looking to break grounds with more challenging roles outside the two-hour cinematic timeframe. These are exciting and experimental times in the entertainment industry. I love to get under the skin of characters I essay, and hence the longer web series format is the perfect medium to showcase my skills as it is almost like doing five films at one go. There is lots of detailing and one can explore the character in depth. Audiences today want to consume more quality content that has a global appeal. If your story is original, contemporary and relatable, then there is an audience and the appreciation from the audience is spontaneous. I’m open to exploring more of these opportunities going forward.”
With five releases this year, viz. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, F2 Fun and Frustrating, Kanne Kalaimanne, Devi 2, Petromax, the versatile superstar seems to be one of the most bankable and busy actresses ruling the South industry.
Besides shooting for the Tamil remake of Mahi V Raghav’s Telugu film Anando Brahma, Sampath Nandi’s yet-to-be-titled sports drama and Sarileru Neekevvaru, Tamannaah has big releases lined up in the Telugu remake of Queen, That Is Mahalakshmi and romantic drama Bole Chudiyan opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui early next year.
