Dongri to Dubai to get a digital adaptation. Read details 

The book 'Dongri to Dubai' by S. Hussain Zaidi has inspired several Bollywood movies. Now the whole book is going to get adapted as a web series of the same name. Actor Avinash Tiwary has an important role in the show. Here's what he shared about it, "As of now, when there is uncertainty in the industry, digital is the only way to go for. I am doing more stuff on OTT but having said that, I am also looking at projects that take me back to the theatres. I am doing ‘Dongri To Dubai’, which as of now to my knowledge is Amazon’s biggest project."

The book 'Dongri to Dubai' is a detailed analysis of rise and rule of mafia in Mumbai. The events in the book are spanned over five decades and centre mostly around the notorious Dawood Ibrahim and his contemporaries.

Avinash was then asked whether the mode of release affects his work. He replied, "It doesn’t change anything for me. Eventually, I am doing a story that is said by the director. My job is essentially to create that character, which my director wants to tell the story with. I don’t think there is anything different. Every story has a different process, every actor also finds a different process. While that varies, it doesn’t matter if it is an OTT platform or anything else.”
