New Delhi/UNI Prime Video on Wednesday confirmed that prolific actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu will be starring alongside Varun Dhawan in the Indian version of the Citadel universe, the global-event series from Prime Video and the Russo Brothers’ AGBO.

The untitled Citadel series based out of India is being helmed by renowned creator duo Raj & DK (Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK), who are the showrunners and directors.

The local instalment is written by Sita R Menon, along with Raj & DK. The streaming service also confirmed that the production is currently underway in Mumbai.

After this, the unit will head to North India and then onwards to international locales like Serbia and South Africa.

As previously announced, Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra will star in the first-to-launch series within the Citadel universe, which comes from the Russo Brothers’ AGBO along with David Weil and is set to premiere in 2023.

Alongside Madden and Priyanka, the first-to-launch Citadel series will also feature Stanley Tucci.

Additional local-language Citadel productions are also in the works, including an Italian Original series starring Matilda De Angelis.

"When Prime Video and Raj & DK approached me with this project, I decided to take it up in a heartbeat! After working with this team on The Family Man, it is homecoming for me," said Samantha.

“The Citadel universe, the interconnected storylines between the productions across the globe, and most importantly, the script of the Indian installment really excited me. I am thrilled to be a part of this brilliant universe conceptualised by the Russo Brothers’ AGBO.

"I am also looking forward to working with Varun for the first time on this project. He is someone who is full of life and cheers when you're around him," she added.
