Abhay Deol to do web-series on Indo-China war
Aparnna Hajirnis -
Actor Abhay Deol has confirmed that he has signed a 10-episode series with Disney Plus, based on the 1962 Indo-China war and the Great Indian Army under the leadership of Major Shaitan Singh. The Mahesh Manjrekar directorial is said to be Hotstar's one of the most expensive shows.
Not much is known about the project except that the details are kept under tight wraps. Abhay Deol recently was reminiscing about his meet-and-greet with Hollywood veterans, filmmaker Martin Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro, during the Tribeca Film Festival in 2009. The film, directed by Dev Benegal, also featured Tannishtha Chatterjee and Satish Kaushik.
Apart from the Indo-China war series, Abhay will also be seen in the film Bounty Hunter, which he is also co-producing. He will also be seen as King Vikramaditya in the Tamil film Idhu Vedhalam Sollum Kadhai. Both these films are said to be releasing in 2020. All the projects have tentative release dates due to the ongoing Corona pandemic.
