The digital division of Dharma Productions, owned by Karan Johar, Dharmatic Entertainment, is expanding its library of content. PeepingMoon.com has inside knowledge of the OTT content studio’s next web series for Amazon Prime Video, which stars Tamannaah Bhatia in the main role and has an unexpectedly, tipsy name (withheld upon request).
Described as a startup dramedy, the program follows two ladies as they dive into the world of entrepreneurship. While the second heroine’s casting is still in progress, Tamannah Bhatia, well known for SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali trilogy, has been cast in the lead part. Currently in pre-production, the project is scheduled to begin shooting in mid-March or early April.
After the upcoming tinseltown drama series, Showtime, Archit Kumar, the director of Imtiaz Ali’s SonyLIV series, Dr. Arora, will helm this lighthearted drama, his second Dharmatic project. It is directed by Archit and Nishant Nayak, who has experience with unscripted shows like Coke Studio, Shark Tank India, and many more. The authors are Aarsh Vora, Mithun Gangopadhyay, and Nandini Gupta.
Dharmatic Entertainment and Amazon Prime Video have maintained their collaboration with this. After the upcoming Sara Ali Khan-led freedom fighter story Ae Watan Mere Watan and the Ananya Panday-led Call Me Bae, this will be their third collaboration project. It will be Tamanaah’s third online series, after the mystery thriller Aakhiri Sach from Disney+Hotstar and Jee Karda on Amazon Prime.
Five projects from Dharmatic Entertainment are scheduled to debut on three of the top OTT platforms in 2024. While Ae Watan Mere Watan and Call Me Bae are for Amazon Prime, Emraan Hashmi and Naseeruddin Shah starrer Showtime is for Disney+Hotstar. The third season of Netflix’s Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives and the investigative fantasy drama Gyaarah Gyaarah, starring Kritika Kamra, Dhairya Karwa, and Raghav Juyal, are also included in the slate.
In terms of Tamannaah, she is expected to act in three films: Bole Chudiyan, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui; the Tamil horror comedy Arnamanai 4; and a special cameo in John Abraham’s Vedaa.
