The actor also tagged Vijay Sethupathi as well as his co-star Raashii Khanna in his Insta post.
Find below the post shared by Shahid Kapoor on his Instagram account today:
In response to his post, Raashii wrote, “Everything is excused for Vijay Sethupathi sir.” She added, “I had similar emotions today! Ask @rajanddk.”
And the filmmaker duo also responded to Shahid Kapoor’s post by writing, “Shot ready. Let’s roll.”
The untitled Amazon Prime Video web series is said to be a quirky drama thriller that has been created and written by the filmmakers, Raj and DK. Sita R Menon, Suman Kumar, and Hussain Dalal are the co-writers of the script.
Although Shahid Kapoor hinted about working with Vijay Sethupathi, no official confirmation has been made by Amazon yet. Sethupathi is a known face in Tamil movies who gave his best performances in Tamil films like ‘Master’ and ‘Super Deluxe’ among others.
Going by a source from Bollywood Hungama, this series of Shahid Kapoor was expected to be titled Gavar. However, most people do not know that Sunny, which is a tentative title of the web series is a revised version of the same old Farzi script for which Shahid gave his nod long back.
However, the new script has now been brought with just a couple of changes. One is the addition of Vijay Setupathi’s role and the other is a hike in the fees of Shahid Kapoor.
The news was also making rounds that Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon would be seen in Raj and DK’s film Farzi, a few years ago. But then, after a year (in 2015), it was revealed that both the actors have backed off from the film which then went on for ‘hold’.

Shahid Kapoor will be seen as Arjun, a cricketer in the film. The plot of the film is based on how Arjun who happens to be an unsuccessful player makes his comeback by playing for India to fulfill his son’s dreams.
