Created by the director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the series is produced under their banner D2R Films. They earlier created the hit Prime Video series, The Family Man, starring Manoj Bajpayee.

The upcoming show, which has eight episodes, is said to be ” a fast-paced, edgy, one-of-a-kind crime thriller, with the director duo’s trademark humour, stitched around a clever underdog street artist’s pursuit to con the system that favours the rich”. Farzi has been written by Raj & DK, along with Sita R Menon and Suman Kumar, and will focus on the cat-and-mouse race between Shahid and Vijay where losing is not an option.

In a statement, the creators Raj & DK said, “After a massively successful association with Prime Video for The Family Man, we are thrilled to return with our next new series! It’s one of our favourite scripts, which we have created with a lot of passion and shot through the ups and downs of the pandemic. Basically a lot of sweat and tears have gone into making this series. After The Family Man, we challenged ourselves to come up with yet another exciting, unique world. We can’t wait for everyone to watch this series that’ll be out on Prime on February 10th.”
