Naga Chaitanya, last seen in the cop action drama “Custody” directed by Venkat Prabhu, is currently immersed in his 23rd film under the direction of Chandoo Mondeti. In addition to his film projects, Chaitanya has ventured into the digital realm with a supernatural web series titled “Dhootha,” directed by the adept filmmaker Vikram K. Kumar. Originally slated for release in the first quarter of 2023, the series faced delays. However, the OTT platform has announced that the release date will be revealed today at noon.
In an earlier interview, Naga Chaitanya explained the delay: “Once a product is handed over to Prime Video, there would be four to five months of processes, including subtitling work, dubbing in other languages, legal, due diligence works, etc. Only after completing all these procedures will Prime Video announce the release date.”
Produced by North Star Entertainment, “Dhootha” features Parvathy Thiruvothu, Priya Bhavani Shankar, Prachi Desai, and Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam in pivotal roles. The series delves into the theme of inanimate objects becoming possessed and wreaking havoc on those who commit deadly sins.
