Rana Daggubati is gathering praise as the teaser of his first web series Social released recently. On talking of his decision to act in the Viu digital drama, the Baahubali star said that not all stories are meant for the big screen. Rana also does a Telugu chat show No 1 Yaari for Viu, a video-on-demand platform Viu.

Social is a Hindi-Telugu bilingual thriller revolving around the impact of social media in people’s lives. Rana believes that the medium gives one the freedom to say a story without restrictions, he said in a media interaction.

He shared that audiences have become busier, and hence the need for different mediums. Rana, who plays a powerful businessman in the show, is interested in exploring more opportunities in this medium.

Directed by Shashi Sudigala, the series also stars Naveen Kasturia, Priya Banerjee, Aradhana Uppal, Abdul Razzaq, Moin Khan and Preeti Asrani.
