‘Jodha Akbar’ fame Ravi Bhatia recently did back to back web-series and music videos. Now, the actor is all set to turn producer for the upcoming web-series titled ‘Shukla’.

The series is roughly inspired from the life of Shri Prakash Shukla, who was killed in an encounter by UP police in 1998. Bhatia will be seen playing the role of a gangster.

“The series is about a shrewd gangster and a contract killer. I am really excited, since I have never played such kind of role before. The best part is I am producing it,” Ravi said while beaming.

He further added, “We shot the series in exotic location of Satna, M.P to give it a realistic feel. It is a great project for me and I am really looking forward to release it as soon as possible.”

The series was shot before pandemic, and was planned to release on a popular OTT, but ended up with a mess. Ravi said, “Things don’t always go as planned. The team was feeling hopeless, after we were cheated by the OTT, where it was supposed to release. The took the charge as a producer, and re-edited the entire series. I have pitched the series on various platforms, and got an amazing response from everywhere.”

The series also stars Shafaq Naaz, Arham Abbasi and Arun Kumar. Interestingly, Bhatia’s ‘Halala’ co-star Shafaq Naaz will be playing his love interest in the series.
