The year 2022 has been full of highs and lows for Shahid Kapoor. The trailer of the web series Farzi was launched on Friday and marks his OTT debut.

He said, “It is the best start for the year that I could have asked for. Last year had a lot of ups and downs. And I was very happy to hear that we will launch the show on February 10. It is my birthday month and it is great.”

Elaborating on the same, he said, “It is a lot of firsts.” Prime Video’s Farzi, created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishnsa DK, marks the digital debut of actors Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi. Shahid features as a conman who gets pulled into the murky high stakes of a con job and there is a fiery task force officer on the mission to rid the country of his menaces in a fast paced, edgy one of a kind thriller.

Shahid says, “The choice to go on to the OTT platform was to break the trend, was to do something different and challenge myself. I have been doing this for almost 20 years, I need to feel challenged and excited. It is a long form format. I was excited to see how I can build a character over eight to nine episodes in the first season. We will see what happens after that. But that is very different from playing a character which is two hour and pretty much in one stretch. All those things are exciting. I actually enjoyed myself a lot.”
