Vijay Sethupathi to Appear alongside Shahid Kapoor, Raashii Khanna in Raj & DK’s Series

Vijay Sethupathi, the Tamil actor, will be seen in filmmaker duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s upcoming Hindi web series alongside actors Shahid Kapoor and Raashii Khanna.


The announcement comes after several reports speculated that Sethupathi’s first Hindi series appearance would be in the director duo’s upcoming The Family Man 3.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, Raj & DK posted a photo of the actor on the set of their upcoming series and welcomed him. Khanna also shared a photo of herself with Sethupathi on Twitter and said she is happy to collaborate with him for the third time. She earlier worked with him on the Tamil films Tughlaq Durbar and Sangathamizhan.

The yet-to-be-titled show, co-written by Sita R Menon, Suman Kumar, and Hussain Dalal, will stream on Amazon Prime Video. It will be a quirky drama thriller series filled with the director duo’s trademark dark and wry humour.

This Raj & DK series marks Khanna and Kapoor’s first project together. It is also Kapoor’s digital debut and first collaboration with the directors and with Sethupathi.

Earlier, in a statement, Kapoor had said, “My favourite Indian show on Amazon Prime Video is The Family Man. I couldn’t think of anyone better for my digital debut than them… I loved the story idea when I first heard it and since then it has been an exciting ride! Can’t wait to share this series with the audience.”


While shooting commenced in February, the team had taken a small break recently. Kapoor is expected to join the sets again soon.

Meanwhile, Kapoor is awaiting the release of  Gowtam Tinnanuri’s Jersey, the Hindi remake of the hit Telugu sports drama of the same name. It also stars Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur in pivotal roles. The film is most likely to release during Diwali.

Sethupathi, on the other hand, is currently set to appear in a handful of films including Kamal Haasan’s Vikram.

Khanna’s next will be director Sundar C’s Tamil film Aranmanai 3.
