Varun Dhawan confirms Indian version of Citadel is interconnected with Priyanka Chopra – Richard Madden starrer: ‘It’s just a very amazing process to be a part of the universe created by the Russo Brothers’
At the premiere, Varun Dhawan was asked about Citadel India and how the stories of multiple versions will be interconnected. He told PTI, “It's a tough job for all of us now. We are going to work really hard because we know what we are following. It's just a very amazing process to be a part of the universe created by the Russo Brothers. For us, it is like the Russo Brothers coming together with Raj & DK, so I couldn't be happier being part of Citadel. It's great to work under the leadership of these two and here I speak for myself and Samantha.”
The actor also said that he did infact discuss the show’s link to that of Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ version. He said, “PeeCee and I spoke about the relationship between the Indian and American Citadel. They are interconnected. That's the only spoiler I can give you.”
At the press conference of the show Citadel on Monday, Priyanka Chopra Jonas was asked whether she had any advice for her two fellow Indian spies (Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu) who are a part of Citadel universe and are shooting the series currently. Priyanka responded, “I don't think I can give them any advice. They are both such accomplished actors in their own ways. There is nothing I can say.”
The actress said, “I met Varun recently at the NMACC event and he was telling me how the shoot is going and how exciting it is. There are some really cool threads that connect our instalments. So, we were talking about those. And you will find it out how once you start watching the show how we are all connected to each other.”
She also lauded the makers of the Indian Citadel Raj & DK and said, “But it is really fun and can't wait to see that because I think DK and Raj the filmmakers are so amazing, they are so talented and that they are going to bring their own spin to the Indian instalments. It’s very exciting.”
Citadel is executive produced by the Russo Brothers’ AGBO and showrunner David Weil. The 6-episode series features Stanley Tucci and Lesley Manville in pivotal roles. This thrilling spy series, which takes viewers around the world, will premiere exclusively on Prime Video starting April 28 with two episodes and then one episode rolling out weekly through May 26.
