Kabir Khan who recently wrapped up shooting for his forthcoming film Tubelight starring Salman Khan is all set to enter the digital space as well with a web series. If reports are to be believed, Kabir will soon be venturing into the digital world with an international web series which will focus on Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. The web series will apparently be directed and produced by the filmmaker himself.
“It’s a war epic, an Indian Band of Brothers (the 2001 American war-drama miniseries co-written by Tom Hanks and featuring Homeland star Damian Lewis) of sorts, which will touch upon several stories, including the contribution of women in the Indian National Army. Kabir has been working on the subject since many years and now has a screenplay ready, however, he will develop the story further only after the release of Tubelight with a team of writers,” a source said to a leading tabloid.
The source further added that Kabir is extremely excited about this project and the budget for the same will be higher than any of his films till date. “Kabir is extremely excited about this mega project with a scale and budget that will be way higher than any of his films till date. It will mostly be a nine to 10-episode series to be shot extensively abroad with some portions set in India and will feature actors and technicians from all over the world but Kabir will begin casting only after the release of Tubelight,” said the source.
Before making his Bollywood debut, Kabir has worked as cinematographer for a documentary film by Gautam Ghosh, Beyond the Himalayas. Later with the Forgotten Army, Kabir made his documentary debut. The film was based on Subhas Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army.
