Karan Johar has roped in Madhuri Dixit Nene as the lead actor for an upcoming series under his production Dharmatic on Netflix.
The actor will be seen in a series which will be helmed by showrunner Sri Rao and creatively produced by Karan Johar. Talking about the same, Madhuri said in a statement:
“I’ve always been a fan of Netflix, which is why I decided to make my debut as a producer with 15th August. The reach and diversity in the audience that the global service provides are unparalleled.
And of course, Karan and his team have been like family for me, so when I got this opportunity to play the protagonist in this series that’s produced by both Netflix and Dramatic – I was beyond excited.
This series is entertaining, riveting, and yet heartwarming.”
Karan also expressed his excitement for this new project:
“Madhuri has been one of my all-time favourite actresses, once I got to know her, I loved her even more.
Dharmatic’s association with Netflix is extremely special because together, we get to tell untold stories in the way we want to.
This is one such story and the confluence of Netflix, Dharmatic and Madhuri Dixit Nene will be nothing short of iconic.”
Additional details on this development, especially the title, are still awaited.
Johar recently forayed into the digital space by exhibiting his first ‘Netflix Original’ that being Drive starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez.
