The upcoming show is backed by the film arm of Saregama India, Yoodlee Films, which is also making its debut in the digital space with the project.

The noir action thriller series will be helmed by acclaimed Tamil director Rajesh M Selva of “Thoongaa Vanam” and “Kadaram Kondan” fame.

Shetty, best known for 1990-2000s films “Mohra”, “Dhadkan”, and the “Hera Pheri” series, said he was instantly drawn to the unique story of “Invisible Woman”.

“A web series today must have something to set it apart from the barrage of narratives that already exist, and the story of ‘Invisible Woman’ immediately captured my attention. I am very happy to collaborate with Yoodlee to bring this show to life and to make my debut in a web series as unique as this,” the 60-year-old actor said in a statement.

Vikram Mehra, MD Saregama India said after receiving positive response from audience for their films like “Ajji”, “Hamid”, and “Kanpuriye” on the OTT (over-the-top) platform, they are excited to take a plunge with a web series.

“We have been very effective in addressing the demand of the new emerging digital audiences for wholesome entertainment content through our slate of feature films that have found place of favour in the many OTT platforms,” Mehra said.

“Now we take the leap into the world of web series – a space that we have been itching to get into, given how consumption patterns of consumers have seen a tectonic shift to binge-watching. We were waiting for the right project to come our way and ‘Invisible Woman’, is just the right one to augur this transition,” he added.

The series also stars Esha Gupta, who was last seen in the 2019 film “One Day: Justice Delivered”.

“Invisible Woman” will go on floors soon.
