Shahid Kapoor’s web series Farzi is an anticipated one.

Also starring Vijay Sethupathi, it is the next series from the acclaimed creators of The Family Man.

Produced under Raj & DK’s banner D2R Films, the star-studded show marks Shahid and Vijay’s digital debuts.

But when can viewers expect the Amazon Prime Video Original series to premiere?

The platform has announced that it will premiere on February 10, 2023, in India and in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

A description of the show read: “An artist who gets pulled into the murky high stakes of a con job and 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.”

It appears that Shahid is the artist and Vijay plays the “fiery task force officer”.

A teaser also showed Shahid painting and saying:

“An artist is always an artist.”

Farzi also stars Kay Kay Menon, Raashi Khanna, Amol Palekar, Regina Cassandra and Bhuvan Arora.

Raashi, in an earlier Instagram Live, spoke about the show and said:

“I have been dubbing for Farzi, and I have to tell you guys that there is something amazing coming your way. This is something I am very happy about.

“I loved mine and Shahid’s chemistry. I remember calling him and telling him that he has done an amazing job.”

Shahid Kapoor previously spoke about making his debut on an OTT platform.

He shared: “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 hours and pretty much in one stretch.

“All those things are exciting. I actually enjoyed myself a lot.”

The crime thriller revolves around a clever street artist’s pursuit to con the system that favours the rich.

Aparna Purohit, head of Originals, Prime Video India, said:

“There couldn’t have been a better start to  2023.

Farzi is a rip-roaring show which is rooted in the middle-class milieu – its dreams, aspirations and anxieties.

“Headlined by Shahid Kapoor and Vijay Sethupathi, who will be making their digital debut with us, the show will redefine the contours of storytelling in the crime thriller genre.

“Masterfully crafted by Raj & DK, the series further cements our successful, long-standing collaboration with the maverick duo and features an eclectic choice of talent with a pan-India appeal.”
