Rumours about Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Mission Cinderella’ have been doing the rounds for several months. Latest buzz suggests that the film will be split into a mini-series when it streams on digital platform, Hotstar later this year.
PinkVilla reports that the Hindi remake of the Tamil classic, ‘Ratsasan’ will stream in a an episodic format. A source told the publication, “The story beautifully lends itself to the episodic format of filmmaking, and hence, the entire team is currently trying to tweak the edit to make it a limited episode OTT series. If need be, they are ready to shoot some of the portions again to keep the episode on a cliff hanger. Basically, the makers are looking to position it as Akshay Kumar’s digital debut in the episodic format.”
The source added, “They don’t wish to dilute the impact of this story, which holds the viewer on the edge of their seat until the end. However, there is also a talk on how the longer format will give the director some more time to establish the psych of his characters in a better way. It’s all in the early stages, but if everything materialises, Cinderella would make a debut as an OTT original series.”
