It is set to premiere exclusively on Prime Video in India and across more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on December 1.

Sushant Sreeram, country director, Prime Video, India, expressed, “We’re honored and proud to bring Dhootha to a platform as prestigious as IFFI. At Prime Video, our foremost mission is to entertain every single customer, across geographies, age-groups, and languages. So, we knew it was the perfect title to mark our foray into the Telugu long-format content space.”

Naga Chaitanya Akkineni shared his excitement about his streaming debut, stating, “I couldn’t have asked for a better series to make my streaming debut. As an actor, I consume a lot of content on OTT, and always wanted to explore the space. The collaborative aspect of working in a series with a more extended engagement with the same character and fellow actors is intriguing and refreshing."

Parvathy Thiruvothu, discussing her decision to join "Dhootha," said, “I am a fan of suspenseful thrillers, but the decision to be a part of Dhootha was more of the script choosing me than me choosing it. Dhootha is unlike anything I have done in the past, and I was curious and excited to do something so unique."

Director Vikram Kumar shared his thoughts, stating, “I let my instincts lead me while working on the story of Dhootha, and from just a suspense-thriller, it evolved into something deeper and more meaningful. Dhootha is by far one of the most ambitious Telugu series and is a result of countless hours of preparation, immense dedication, and tireless efforts from an amazing team.”

Producer Sharrath Marar added, “When Vikram narrated the concept of Dhootha, we at NorthStar knew that it would definitely be a landmark in Telugu cinema. Dhootha is by far one of the most ambitious Telugu series, and is a result of countless hours of preparation, immense dedication, and tireless efforts from an amazing team.”

"Dhootha" is all set to premiere on Prime Video in India and more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on December 1, offering audiences a captivating experience in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.
