Amazon Prime wowed audiences with Breathe, the web series which saw Madhavan in a negative role. There has been buzz about Abhishek Bachchan being part of the sequel. Now, there’s buzz that Saiyami Kher, who made her debut with the film Mirzya has been roped in to play a role in the second season. According to sources, the second season will not be connected to the first and is a fresh story. The first season starred Amit Sadh. Director Mayank Sharma is poised to helm the series this time around.
The series is all set to go on the floors sometime this month. The first series had an interesting storyline and also cast Madhavan in a never before seen avatar. Going by that, it remains to be seen what role Abhishek will play in the series. Till date, he has not played a negative character in a film, apart from Mani Ratnam’s Yuva.
With Abhishek Bachchan added to the cast, he becomes one of the biggest names who foray into web series. Saif Ali Khan broke the trend with Sacred Games and earlier, Vivek Oberoi and Richa Chadha made their web series debut with Inside Edge. Since then, stalwarts like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte have made their web series debut. Apte has acted in a couple of web series and short films, including the Netflix Original mini web series Ghoul.
