Leaving behind the failure of Tubelight, Kabir Khan has started working on his next venture. This time the talented director is working on a web series. The web series, which he has named ‘The Forgotten Army’, is based on Subash Chandra Bose’s Azad Hind Army.
As far as the lead actors are concerned in the web series, the audience might get an opportunity to see the new pair of Saif Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor. Saif Ali Khan has already been finalized for the lead role and the actor has also nodded his approval to work in the web series. However, the actress for the movie is yet to be finalized, news of Shraddha Kapoor playing the lead role is rife.
As per the books that throw light on freedom fighters, Azad Hind Army was the first army to have women soldiers. Named as Rani Jhansi Regiment, the Army had brave women fighters. To ensure perfect reverence, Kabir Khan is looking for an actress who can justify the role. Apart from Shraddha Kapoor, Kabir Khan is also in talks with Parineeti Chopra for a central role.
Focusing on the Army of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, the web series will have around 8-9 episodes of 40 minutes each. Once Shraddha Kapoor gets finalized for the lead role in ‘The Forgotten Army’, it will be really interesting to see Saif and Shraddha together.
This is worth mentioning that web series has given many actors a new platform to show their talent. Not just television actors but this year many big stars have also experimented by working in different web series.
