After creating waves as a high-octane action film, Vidyut Jammwal starrer Commando is all set to be adapted into a series on Disney Plus Hotstar. Backed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, the series retells the action saga in a completely new format.
The new show will feature the adventures of Para SF Captain Karan Singh Dogra (originally played by Vidyut Jammwal) in finer details, giving viewers a close look into his life and mission. Vipul is currently looking for a new face to play the lead role in the serial.
Speaking about the upcoming show, Vipul Amrutlal Shah said, “It is an absolute pleasure and joy to expand the action franchise Commando into the OTT world. This franchise was very special because we launched the extremely talented Vidyut Jammwal and it became one of the most successful action franchises. It will be very exciting as it will be another experiment with the same franchise which has never happened in India. Commando as a movie only has Vidyut Jammwal but OTT will launch a new Commando. Also, action is a genre that’s pretty unexplored on OTT in India, so in that sense it’s going to be a new thing for OTT, so it’s going to be fun. I am very excited to work with Disney Plus Hotstar after Human as they are an amazing team with a great vision.”
On the work front, Vidyut Jammwal was last seen in Khuda Hafiz 2.
