Raveena Tandon made her OTT debut last year with Siddharth Roy Kapur’s crime-thriller, Aranyak. The Netflix series saw her playing the role of a hill station cop navigating a web of suspects after a puzzling murder. Enthralled by the praise she has received for her portrayal in the Rohan Sippy series, the actress is now gearing up for more digital content. Peepingmoon.com has exclusively learned that Raveena Tandon is next doing an edgy thriller series for the streaming giant Disney+Hotstar.
Industry sources have informed us that Raveena will headline Disney+Hotstar’s Indian adaptation of the American drama television series, Revenge. "It’s a mystery drama that will see Raveena playing the role of an emotionally troubled young woman who sets out to extract revenge against the people who wronged her father. She steps into the shoes of Emily VanCamp, who played the central role in the Mike Kelley-created original ABC series. The yet-untitled Hindi adaptation also stars Fan actress Waluscha De Sousa and Jug Jugg Jeeyo fame Varun Sood in pivotal roles," a source close to the development told us. The project has already gone into production and will premiere in mid-next year.
Ruchi Narain, who has previously helmed Kiara Advani’s Netflix film, Guilty, and Lara Dutta Bhupati’s Hotstar show, Hundred, directs this series, besides also producing it with her partners Taher Shabbir Mithaiwala and Ashutosh Yogesh Shah under their banner R.A.T. Films LLP. Revenge, which ran over four seasons between 2011 and 2015, is a thrilling drama series that focuses on a woman’s plot to destroy every individual who played a role in her father’s imprisonment. Along the way, she discovers various facts about her father’s past, which change her plans many times. As the series progresses, she brings in other individuals as allies for her plan. The Indian adaptation marks Revenge’s third adaptation after its previous local versions in Turkey and Colombia.
Meanwhile, Raveena Tandon will next be seen in Rahasya and 420 IPC director Manish Gupta’s suspense thriller, One Friday Night. She is also doing Benoy Gandhi’s rom-com, titled Ghudchadhi, with Sanjay Dutt. Both films are currently in post-production and are expected to be released this year.
