With the Covid outbreak taking over the country and the industry like a storm, many producers and filmmakers are taking the digital route to release their films. The digital renaissance has taken over clearly, with no clarity on the reopening of theatres. Top actors have been locked for lucrative deals for several prominent OTT platforms and now, like Pinkvilla had exclusively told you, Shahid Kapoor too will be seen jumping on the bandwagon. 

A source confirms, "Shahid has been locked for several projects for Netflix. He has signed a huge deal to the tune of Rs 100 crore with the digital streaming platform. Shahid will not only make his digital debut with a Netflix film or series but he will also be toplining different projects. One of them happens to be a concept driven fiction series, details of which are under wraps as of now. He has already signed on the dotted line for the same." We reached out to Shahid's spokesperson who didn't respond to our query.

In fact, we had already revealed to you how Guneet Monga had approached SK to step into Suriya's shoes in the Hindi remake of Soorarai Pottru. "It will be a mix of films and shows that he has committed to. If the Soorarai Pottru remake happens, it will be only for web; that's the plan as of now. Apart from that, Shahid is also doing another action thriller to be directed by Aditya Nimbalkar. That also might be a direct to OTT film. Although the projects have not been completely locked, Shahid has signed the overall deal and committed to work with Netflix on several projects in the near future." Reportedly, Ajay Devgn and Hrithik Roshan too have been roped in by Hotstar to spearhead two series. While Ajay's remuneration is still under wraps, Hrithik is supposedly getting Rs 80 crore just for one show. Shahid, on the other hand, has got a bigger deal of Rs 100 crore, but it will include more than just one film or a series.

#BoycottBollywood #BoycottNetflix Looks like Bollywood is flocking to Netflix and other OTT platforms given most of their films are not releasing in the theaters. Time to boycott Netflix if it becomes Bollywood.

That’s possible. Infact I am impressed he has managed to survive this well. He started with ishq vishq which definitely did not do well because people flocked to the theatres to see Pankaj kapoors son ... not a chance ... I like the fact that he takes them head on and gives a damn. But still don’t want to see him on Netflix and hope being a vegetarian and and religious he doesn’t so drugs but who knows

Sad... Sushant could have easily gotten one of these deals but his talent managers suck!

People are celebrating him because he is dead and gone too young. But he was okay actor. Nobody watched his movies for him.

Sushant was really overrated actor. And I'm not even getting into his other issues

Shahid is the most underrated artist of his generation. All due to KJo and YRF politics. But now that KJo is in dead, we hope to see real talent thrive

Drug test has to be conducted before any actors are brought on board. This should be a common practice moving forward!!! We don't want to see these actors otherwise.
