Bollywood producers have now seen the possibilities of crossovers and how they can result in a higher box office lifespan thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s enormous popularity. The first person to do it successfully was Rohit Shetty, whose 2018 film Simmba included Inspector Singham. This factor increased the excitement and box office revenue. Later, in Sooryavanshi, Singham and Simmba arrived to save the day (2021). The formula performed admirably once more. In the recent Shah Rukh Khan film Pathaan, the character of Tiger from the films Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) makes a prominent cameo (2023). The two superstars’ combination caused the audience to lose their composure, as was to be expected.
And now Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, better known by their stage names Raj and DK, have tried to establish a new fashion. Bollywood Hungama was informed by a source that “the outstanding director combo has developed their own Spy Universe. Their most recent programme, Farzi, which premieres on February 10th, is set in the same universe as the cherished television programme The Family Man starring Manoj Bajpayee. Actually, they have tried to combine the two programmes. It will be seen by viewers in Farzi, who will undoubtedly enjoy it.”
“We have witnessed a number of cinematic universes,” the source stated. “The first such digital universe, specifically for OTT in India, is Raj and DK’s Spy Universe. The fact that both series feature some compelling characters creates a wealth of options for the writers and producers as well.”
Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi, Raashii Khanna, Amol Palekar, Kay Kay Menon, and Bhuvan Arora are among the cast members of Farzi. Vijay plays a covert agent who seeks to bring down individuals engaged in the production of counterfeit money, while Shahid portrays a con artist who creates false cash notes. Manoj Bajpayee portrays the spy in the movie The Family Man, which also stars Sharib Hashmi, Priya Mani, and Darshan Kumaar. The debut season, which debuted in September 2019, enjoyed tremendous success. Samantha Ruth Prabhu appeared in the second season, which debuted in June 2021. The third season is on the way, and this season was very well received.
