Actror Vaani Kapoor will be headlining Yash Raj Films' gritty crime thriller directed by Gopi Puthran of 'Mardaani' fame.


The multi-season show will be part of Yash Raj Films' OTT slate, which is being housed under the YRF Entertainment banner. YRF also has 'The Railway Men', based on the horrific Bhopal Gas Tragedy.



A source said: "Vaani has only been looking for projects where she could deliver a performance to remember. She loves a challenge and she does land her acting perfectly. She did this brilliantly in 'Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui'."


"While she continues to give preference to theatricals, she isn't going to shut herself out of great digital projects, one which presented itself in Gopi Puthran's next. It is a gritty, edge-of-the-seat crime thriller which YRF feels is a brilliant concept and is extremely bullish about. They will mount this project at a scale that will surprise people."

The source added: "Gopi was clear that he wanted to cast someone who will be fresh in the OTT landscape. He wanted a solid performer who can hold her own and deliver brilliant acting moments in this gritty thriller. Gopi needed a performer to headline this show well. He has always appreciated Vaani's work in her films."

"So, when he decided to make the show, he spoke to Vaani to check her intent. To his delight, Vaani jumped at the brilliant concept and immediately said yes to collaborate with Gopi, who has become a talent to watch out for after his brilliant directorial debut in 'Mardaaani 2'."

"For Vaani, she is looking to work with the brightest of minds to become a better performer with each outing. So, this was a slam dunk for her," the source added.
