Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan was last seen in ‘Marmarziyaan’ with Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu. He had also recently voiced Bagheera in the Hindi dub version of Netflix’s ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’. Now the talented actor will be marking his debut as a lead in season two of Amazon Prime Video’s Original series ‘Breathe’. Yes, after Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the 42-year-old is the latest from Bollywood to debut on the digital platform.

While the first season of ‘Breathe’ had R Madhavan, headlining the series as the protagonist along with Amit Sadh, ‘Breathe 2’ will see Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.

Speaking about his debut on the digital platform to PTI Abhishek said, “In Breathe, one of the things that attracted me the most to the story was the details and nuances that were built into the character I play. This is possible in the streaming medium since the time to engage with the audience is nearly four times that of a conventional feature film.”

He further added, “To me, the story and the vision of the director are the two most important things before I commit to a project. If these two are in place, there are no doubts.”

The ‘Manmarziyaan’ actor said he enjoys streaming platforms as an audience and believes they are going to be big. He also hopes to produce content for the streaming platform in the near future.

Created by Abundantia Entertainment, the second season of the series will be directed by Mayank Sharma. Bhavani Iyer, Vikram Tuli, Arshad Syed and Mayank are also the writers of the show. Amit Sadh is returning as senior inspector Kabir Sawant though not much details are revealed about Abhishek’s character. The second season of the show is already in production and will be available on Amazon Prime Video.
