Internationally, superhero shows like Daredevil and Gotham are quite popular but India, which is an evolving market in the online streaming and web-series space is still experimenting with such genres.
Doga is an anti-hero vigilante, who has no super powers and solely relies on his combat skills, especially in martial arts and boxing. "It's going to be extremely challenging. Doga is the ultimate badass and is built like a beast. Besides that, there will have to be a lot of different martial arts that I'll have to learn. It's a huge responsibility, but I'm ready for it," Kunal added.
Kunal Kapoor will also be seen on the big screen shortly, in the epic historical drama - Veeram, Tigmanshu Dhulia's war drama Raagdesh and Reema Kagti's Gold.
