‘The Devotion of Suspect X’ was hot property for Bollywood around a year ago. Bollywood film-makers are great fans of Korean cinema and the buzz was that Ekta Kapoor bought the rights for the project. Saif Ali Khan was supposed to play the lead, but that news has fizzled out. Now, reports say that Thomas Kim, the South Korean film-maker has set up his office in Mumbai. The buzz is that Kim is making a web series for Amazon called Suspect X. This is an adaptation of the same Japanese book. Now that it will be made into a web series, we aren’t sure what will be the way ahead for Ekta Kapoor. The book has already been adapted into three films, in Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Ekta Kapoor, meanwhile, is on a digital juggernaut and has launched close to 40 new web series, along with an app that serves as a platform for the web series.
