These days Siddharth Malhotra is busy shooting for a web series under the banner of filmmaker Rohit Shetty. Sources related to the series told that Vivek Oberoi has also been entered in it. The mission of both the characters is being told as the encounter of five young terrorists. It is said to be inspired by a mission similar to the Batla House encounter. The makers have booked the GTC ie Grand Tobacco Company building in Vile Parle for the shoot for three months. Rohit Shetty’s team was also going to go to Delhi in the middle of this month for the shooting of this web series. However, there has been a slight change in it. A set of railway stations of Delhi is being built in Vile Parle itself.
Sources said that apart from Vivek Oberoi, Shilpa Shetty will also be seen in the series. Shilpa recently completed the Punjab schedule of her another project ‘Sukhi’ in Punjab. In June, he is releasing ‘Nikamma’ with Bhagyashree’s son. His character is also being told of cop in Rohit Shetty’s project. Along with Vivek and Shilpa, there is also Niketan Dhir in his team. After ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Sooryavanshi’, he is again working with Rohit Shetty. Niketan Dheer’s role in both those projects was of gray and negative shade. Here he has got the role of positive cop.
Mayank Tandon has been cast in the role of Villain in the web series. Mayank has been his assistant on many projects with him. Rohit has made him the main villain here. The set of Okhla, Delhi has also been created in the Tobacco Company building in Vile Parle. Sources claim that it is a similar story to the Batla House encounter. However, a lot of changes have been made here.
However, like Siddharth, Vivek and Niketan Dheer, Shilpa Shetty’s cop character interrogates and eliminates terrorists. Rohit Shetty is following his customary shoot pattern in web series as well. That is how he has done the casting of the artists who have worked in the past as well. Rohit has also given the command of direction to his AD, Sushwant Prakash. Along with this, he is also keeping a schedule for the shoot of this web series in Goa.
Sources said that after completing the shoots of Delhi and Goa, Rohit Shetty will start shooting for the next season of his TV show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’. He has also shot a promo for it last week. Because of that, he could not go to his web series shoot that day. He will have a schedule of two months for the TV show. After coming back from there in October, he will complete the patch work of Siddharth’s web series.
