Amazon Prime Video, in a special event at Mumbai's JW Marriott hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar on Thursday, announced nearly 40 project titles for 2022, Among them, the title for the Shahid Kapoor and 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi-starrer web series has been revealed to be Farzi. The upcoming series directed by the Raj and DK duo, who are best known for their work on The Family Man, under their D2R Films banner, also features popular South Indian actresses Raashii Khanna and Regina Cassandra alongside a diverse talented supporting cast that includes Kay Kay Menon, Zakir Hussain, Bhuvan Arora, Amol Palekar and Kubbra Sait. 

Farzi will see Shahid in the lead role, with Vijay Sethupathi playing a police officer, while Raashii Khanna and Kay Kay Menon are a part of his team. Amazon Prime Video has released an official synopsis for the show that reads as follows: "A small-time artist working out of his grandfather’s printing press has designed the ultimate con job - a crime uniquely suited to him - and gets pulled into the murky, high stakes world of all that it demands. A fiery, unorthodox task force officer has made it his mission to rid the country of the menace this poses in this fast-paced, edgy one-of-a-kind thriller." 

Speaking about his OTT debut with Farzi, Shahid Kapoor expressed his nervousness initially to debut on the medium and said, "It's so different from what we do in movies. I am nervous but excited. I always wanted to do something challenging and different. This story and character to me match every film that I have done. I can't wait for the audience to see it." Likewise, Raj & DK too poured in their thoughts and spoke about their success formula after The Family Man for Farzi. They said, "We have tried to copy our success formula. But then we thought we won't be original. So we have done something new. We hope, the series is as successful as Family Man."
