Director Ekta Kapoor, daughter of veteran Bollywood actor Jeetendra Kapoor, has signed Sanjay Suri for a new web series titled Dev DD. Sanjay Suri will be playing the male version of Chandramukhi, a character from movie Devdas.
The next schedule of web series Dev DD, which is being directed by Ken Ghosh, will be shot in Mumbai. The new series is all set to explore what would have happened if Chandramukhi was a man.
Talking about the digital debut, Sanjay says, “Am sure a platform like ALT Balaji will surely push the envelope and will be well received. Am looking forward to working with the team as we start to shoot soon.”
Sanjay further says that he is excited to work for the first time with Ken and Ekta for Dev DD. Talking about his role, Suri says, “A male Chandramukhi breaks preconceived notions of what this character will be or is supposed to be.”
