Amazon’s upcoming series, “Citadel,” produced by Priyanka Chopra, has reportedly cost the company nearly Rs 2500 crore after extensive reshoots. The show, which was initially planned to have only six episodes, has now been expanded to include 12 episodes due to the rewrites and reshoots.
The decision to expand the series was reportedly made after Amazon’s executives were unhappy with the initial footage that was shot. Chopra, who also stars in the show, has reportedly been working tirelessly to ensure that the reshoots are completed to the satisfaction of the production team and the streaming giant.
Despite the added expenses and delays, Amazon remains optimistic about the success of the series. “Citadel” is part of the streaming service’s larger effort to expand its content offerings and compete with other streaming services like Netflix and Disney+.
“Citadel” is an action-packed espionage thriller that is set to take place in several different countries around the world. The series is being produced by Chopra’s production company, Purple Pebble Pictures, along with the Russo Brothers, who directed several of the “Avengers” films.
Chopra, who is a well-known Bollywood actress, has been making waves in Hollywood in recent years with her roles in films like “Baywatch” and “The White Tiger.” She has also been involved in various philanthropic initiatives, including supporting education and health care initiatives in India.
The production of “Citadel” is expected to continue in the coming months, with the show’s release date still to be determined. Despite the setbacks, Chopra and Amazon remain committed to delivering a high-quality product that will be enjoyed by audiences around the world.
As the streaming wars continue to heat up, it is clear that companies like Amazon are willing to invest significant resources in developing original content that can stand out in a crowded market.
