Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK popularly known as Raj and DK started their Bollywood career with the acclaimed and quirky 99 (2009). They followed it up with another weird movie, Shore In The city (2011), zombie comedy Go Goa Gone (2013) and then a romcom, Happy ending (2014). Post Happy endingthey had to make Farze, starring Shahid Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama in November 2014, Raj and DK had said that “Farze it’s like Shor In The City on steroids.”
REVEALED: Shahid Kapoor breaks silence on why Farzi couldn’t be made into a film and why it was turned into a web series
Almost 9 years later, today, Raj and DK are ready to release Farze. But now it has been turned into a web series. While Shahid Kapoor was retained, Vijay Sethupathi stepped in. During the release of its trailer Farze today, Raj Nidimoru, Krishna DK and Shahid Kapoor explained why Farze was turned into a web series.
Krishna DK said, “Raj, myself and writers Sita Menon and Suman Kumar had conceived the idea of Farze about eight years ago. It was supposed to be a feature film. And finally, it saw the light of day two years ago, when we decided to make it a series. It’s been a long journey from where it started to today.”
Shahid Kapoor explained, “We started talking about the show even before the film fraternity started going OTT. It’s because I love their performances. The Head of the Family 1 and 2. They called me (Raj and DK) to offer a film. I asked “Film toh theek hai. OTT I’m sorry ho?’. They asked me “Are you serious or joking?”. I said “I’d absolutely love to do a show.” They narrated an idea that curiously eight years ago, we had discussed among ourselves as a film (idea). At the time (we couldn’t do it) as it was too long in terms of story length or to fit into a movie. The best thing happened Farze it’s that it didn’t get made into a movie as I don’t think we could pull it off. We have the first season which is the equivalent of 2 ½ movies. If people like it, we can do another 2 ½ movies and another 2 ½ movies.”
Farze will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on February 10. As for the streaming giant, Shahid Kapoor broke into laughter as he remarked, “I had an amazing time with them. Their contracts are scary, but as people, they’re amazing!”
