The project marks the first collaboration between Singh and Sinha, who have both starred in large audiences as well as content-driven films such as Dabangg series, Lootera, Akira and Mission Mangal.
Bulbul Taran will go on floors in March-April, the insider said, adding it would “be a direct-to-digital release.”
Sinha is awaiting the release of Bhuj: The Pride of India, which also stars Ajay Devgan. The film is expected to be released on the worldwide streaming platform Disney + Hotstar.
Sinha is also making her digital debut in a web series with the Amazon Prime Video series, which is reportedly named Fallen. Directed by Reema Kagti, it also stars Gulshan Devaiah, Vijay Verma and Soham Shah.
