'Breathe 2': Abhishek Bachchan's series to release in June?
Breathe, one of Amazon Prime Video's first Indian original series, starring R Madhavan and Amit Sadh, was a glorious success. And as it turns out, the new season of the acclaimed show, which also marks Abhishek Bachchan's plunge into the digital space, might be out sooner than later. The series is expected to hit our digital screens this June. Here's more on this.
In the upcoming series, Abhishek will be seen playing a desperate father. Talking about the role, a source told Pinkvilla that his character has a dual personality. What's more, the darker side of Abhishek's character has been inspired by the evil Ravana, from the Hindu epic Ramayana. The character is said to be particularly obsessed with the concept of Ravana's ten heads.
While it remains to be seen whether Abhishek's intriguing character fights his dark obsession or gets consumed by it, let us tell you that the much-awaited second season also stars Nithya Menen and Mirzya actor Saiyami Kher. Amit Sadh, who received praise for his role as Inspector Kabir Sawant in the show's first season, will also be back for the renewed season.
For the unversed, the first season of Prime Video's Breathe revolved around a thrilling cat-and-mouse chase between a charismatic football coach Danny (Madhavan), who is desperate to save his dying son's life, and Sadh's character.
The decision to release Breathe's new season sooner than planned earlier might be a good one, as viewership for online streaming platforms is on the rise during the ongoing nationwide lockdown. Meanwhile, Abhishek also has movies like Ludo, The Big Bull, and Bob Biswas in the pipeline. However, all movie productions and film releases currently remain stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
