Coming close on the heels of Mirzapur’s success, one hears that Priyanshu Painyuli has begun shooting for Amazon Prime Video an independent series that is to be headlined by him.
One hears that because the actor has received a great response to his character in Mirzapur, the top brass at the OTT platform pursued him for an independent project.
Also, the word is the project is produced by ace filmmaker Raja Krishna Menon and this will be the third collaboration between Priyanshu and Menon after Upstarts on Netflix and soon to begin the film, Pippa.
It will be a dark comedy genre series that will have Priyanshu playing as the lead.
A source says, “Priyanshu has had a memorable year. He has a film on floors and a big project Pippa that will start soon. His stint in Mirzapur and Extraction earlier in the year was praiseworthy.
He is receiving a lot of work on OTT but Priyanshu treads carefully, ensuring he doesn’t repeat himself.
Priyanshu is all geared up shooting with Raja Krishna Menon after Upstarts that was produced by Menon for Netflix and looking forward to begin shooting for Pippa where Menon will be directing the project.
Menon is like a mentor to Priyanshu. The actor is keen to work actively across movies and shows to ensure he works at bettering his own craft.”
Priyanshu currently has been caught up completing Rashmi Rocket along with Taapsee Pannu where he will be seen as an army man.
