Amazon Prime Video India Unveils 14 Original Web Series for 2020 in New Teaser
Amazon Prime Video is set to release a range of new original web series in India, which will be spread across a spectrum of genres and high on the content quotient. In a recent Amazon Prime Video blue-carpet event in Mumbai where Amazon’s founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, met several Bollywood celebrities, the international streaming giant also unveiled seven new original titles for its Indian audience, in addition to its already-announced series. Now, Prime Video India has released a new video with teasers for its upcoming 14 originals, nine new and five returns, set to release in 2020.
Ranging from genres like crime, suspense, thriller, action, and drama, the seven new originals slated for exclusive release in India are ‘Dilli’, ‘Bandish Bandits’, ‘Paatal Lok’, ‘Gormint’, ‘Mumbai Diaries: 26/11’, ‘The Last Hour’, and ‘Sons of Soil: Jaipur Pink Panthers.’ Other than these seven, the platform is also gearing up to release Kabir Khan’s ‘The Forgotten Army’ later this month, with ‘Comicstaan Tamil’ set to premiere later this year.
Other than these new arrivals, Prime Video India will also have some popular returns, with shows like Mirzapur Season 2, The Family Man Season 2, Breathe Season 2, Four More Shots Please Season 2, and Inside Edge Season 3, coming out on the platform over the year.
At the Prime Video event last week, Amazon CEO Bezos, during a half-an-hour-long chat with Shah Rukh Khan and Zoya Akhtar, remarked that while Amazon is doing generally well over the world and in countries like Japan, Germany, and America, it’s not doing as better anywhere as in India. According to Bezos, the number of hours people spent watching Prime Video grew by six times in just two years in India. At the event, he also announced that Amazon has made a decision to double down its investments in India by committing to invest 1 billion USD (upwards of 7000 crore rupees) over the next few years.
The upcoming web series, fourteen in total, each with an ensemble cast of its own, are set to bring several talented actors and actresses to the screens, with some popular Bollywood stars either returning for yet another outing on the web or making their digital debut this year.
With this exciting teaser, it sure looks like Amazon Prime Video is moving forward to dominate India’s Web Entertainment scene in 2020.
