Saif Ali Khan is quite hit on OTT platforms. After Netflix, he is now gearing up for the premiere of his first Amazon Prime Video series.

Saif Ali Khan is a trendsetter as far as the entry of A-list actors in the webspace is concerned.

After the worldwide success of Sacred Games, Saif Ali Khan also starred in its second season, titled Sacred Games 2. And now, the National Film Award-winning actor is gearing up for the premiere of his next web-series on another leading OTT platform.

Saif Ali Khan plays the lead role in Amazon Prime Video’s much-awaited series, which has been helmed by filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar. Tentatively titled Dilli, the series has been in news ever since Khan came onboard to headline it.

The latest update on the political thriller series is that it will feature the attack on some students and student leaders at the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University a few months ago. While his Netflix show was based on Vikram Chandra’s book of the same name and had several references to former Prime Ministers Rajiv Gandhi and India Gandhi, his upcoming outing will also have political leanings.

Some sources reveal that the forthcoming series is on politics and Saif Ali Khan plays a privileged politician in it, who aspires to be the Prime Minister of the country. So, there are several references not just to politics, but to murders, student politics, references to JNU without calling it so, and sex scandals, among others.

Earlier titled Taandav and then Dilli, the Amazon Prime Video series is yet to lock its official title. The makers are expected to finalise the title very soon. The premiere date of the series is also highly awaited.
