Varun Dhawan To Feature In Amazon’s Priyanka Chopra-Richard Madden Global Series


More and more Bollywood A-listers are jumping on to the OTT bandwagon. The latest to do so is Varun Dhawan. Though he is yet to sign on the dotted line, Dhawan is in talks with Amazon for a role in the Indian spin-off of their global espionage series Citadel.

While Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Richard Madden and the distinguished Stanley Tucci lead the cast for the global version of the series, Varun Dhawan is being considered for the Indian spin-off of Citadel which will be directed by Raj and DK whose The Family Man has redefined the OTT space in India.

Raj and DK are currently helming a series for Amazon, featuring Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi. They will be shooting the Indian spin-off of Citadel as soon as they complete the untitled Sethupati-Shahid series.

In the meantime, the seven episodes of the international version of Citadel with Priyanka and Richard Madden, which will air from March 17, 2022, are being shot in London. Curiosity about Priyanka’s character is humongous. All that is known at the moment is that she plays a spy, and that too is an unverified rumour.

Also, for those desi Bollywood fans hoping to see Varun and Priyanka together in Citadel there is bad news. The two Bollywood stars have no scenes together, as Varun will only be part of the Indian spin-off the series, provided the negotiations for his inclusion in the franchise bear fruit.

How far have the negotiations between Varun and Amazon gone? “Pretty far,” my source informs me. “Varun is keen to be part of Citadel. The only point of contention is the price that Varun is asking for.”
