Akshay Kumar Set To Make Digital Debut With Amazon Prime Original ‘The End’
Superstar Akshay Kumar, who is known to have done films in possibly all the genres one can think of, has now teamed up with streaming media giant Amazon Prime Original for his digital debut. Titled The End, the series is expected to begin production very soon and will be available exclusively on Amaon Prime Video across the world upon its premiere.
The End will be a multi-season series. Talking about the series at its launch in Mumbai, Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said, “The End is being envisioned at an unprecedented scale and cinematic experience.”
Abundantia Entertainment, makers of another Prime Original in Breathe, which will see Abhishek Bachchan in its second season, has joined hands with the streamer to bankroll The End. Abundantia Entertainment has also been co-producer on Akshay Kumar’s blockbuster films like Baby (2014), Airlift (2016) and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017),
“I have always believed in bringing innovation to my work and throughout my career, have tried to tell unique stories, work with break-through talent and be part of disruptive and high-quality storytelling,” Akshay Kumar said. The actor went on to add, “I can’t wait to start rolling for this action-adventure series that will be an Amazon Original for global audiences. The digital world excited me, and I am delighted to make my streaming debut with this show. And if I were to make a small confession here, it was my son Aarav who suggested that I make my digital debut as that’s what the youth is hooked onto. On this medium, I want to create something extraordinary and connect with them.”
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar is presently busy with his forthcoming film Kesari. The period drama, produced by Dharma Productions, also stars Parineeti Chopra and is set to buzz into cinemas on 21st March. His next releases include Mission Mangal, Good News, Housefull 4 and Sooryavanshi.
