After making waves as a high-octane action film and a super hit film franchise, Commando is all set to be adapted into a series on Disney+ Hotstar. Helmed by ace director and franchise mastermind Vipul Amrutlal Shah, the series will narrate the action saga in a completely new format. This adaptation will set a trend in India, making it the first film franchise to evolve into a digital series.
Vipul Amrutlal Shah is set to adapt his hit action film franchise, Commando as a series on Disney+ Hotstar
The new show will chronicle the adventures of Para SF Captain Karan Singh Dogra (originally played by popular actor Vidyut Jammwal) in detail, giving viewers a close look into his life and mission. The creator is currently on the hunt for a fresh face to portray the enigmatic character in the new show.
Commenting on the creation of the all-new show, which also marks his second collaboration with Disney+ Hotstar, director and producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah said, “It is an absolute joy and pleasure to expand the action franchise like Commando in the world of OTT. The franchise was very special because we launched the extremely talented Vidyut Jammwal and it became one of the most successful action franchises. It will be very exciting as it is going to be another experiment with the same franchise which has never happened in India. Commando as a movie it has only Vidyut Jammwal but OTT will release a new one Commando. Also, action is a genre that is quite unexplored in OTT in India, so in that sense, it will be a new thing for OTT, so it will be fun to do. I am very excited to be working with Disney+ Hotstar after ‘Human’ as they are an amazing team with a great vision.”
Gaurav Banerjee, Head- Content, Disney+ Hotstar & HSM Entertainment Network, Disney Star said:Commando is an action movie franchise that has developed a cult following, and we’re excited to announce today that it’s being reimagined as a web series. I am delighted to be working with producer-director Vipul A Shah as he takes it up Commando character on a digital canvas.”
