Victory Venkatesh and Rana Daggubati have teamed up for a web series titled Rana Naidu. Netflix India will be backing this project. Locomotive Global Inc. will be producing the show on a huge scale.
This series will be an official adaptation of the American crime drama Ray Donovan. Karan Anshuman and Suparn Varma will be jointly directing the project. The story will follow the life of Rana Naidu, who is a professional fixer for the elite section of Bollywood.
Netflix India announced the project by tweeting, "THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Rana Daggubati and Venkatesh are in a Netflix show together!! #RanaNaidu, coming soon on Netflix."
"Always wanted to share the screen with my uncle the VICTORY V @VenkyMama and my dream is finally coming true. As much as I love him off-screen, in “Rana Naidu” we are going to be at each other's throats. #RanaNaidu, coming soon on Netflix," tweeted Rana Daggubati.
In his official statement, Rana said, "It is completely different from what both of us have done in our careers so far. I am extremely happy to work with a crew and a platform that knows this format the best. It will be new, challenging and fun. We are looking forward to filming soon."
On the flip side, Venkatesh stated, "I cannot wait to work with Rana. I am sure we will have a blast on sets. I am a huge fan of Ray Donovan and the team is pulling out all the stops to ensure we do justice to it."
