At a press conference held ahead of the release of Vidya Balan-starrer Sherni on Amazon Prime Video, Vikram Malhotra, founder and CEO, Abundantia Entertainment, said “Apart from Breathe, there are other series in development like Hush Hush, which is in the middle of the production. We had to pause it because of the pandemic. There’s a show called The End, featuring Akshay Kumar. It is set to start later this year or early next year, depending on the situation.”

In March 2019, Kumar had launched The End at a huge event in which he was seen walking the ramp with his coat ablaze.

The series will be a multi-season show catering to fans of the action-thriller genre worldwide. According to the actor, the show will have a ‘fun and entertaining story’.
