Varun Dhawan shared his elation and gratitude, remarking, “I want to express my gratitude to Prime Video for backing us and Raj and DK for giving me this opportunity. I remember when I saw Family Man, I picked up a call and had a word with DK and told him that I am a big fan of your work and I really want to know how I can collaborate with you…he told me that we are in talks with the Russo brothers for some projects, and now it’s here.”

His co-star, Samantha, delved into the challenging aspects of the show, particularly the action sequences, which presented her with a new artistic challenge. “I never would have imagined that I could take action… till the last moment, I thought that I would not be able to do this. I am extremely grateful to Raj and DK for coming to my rescue,” she stated candidly.

Described as a gritty spy action thriller that also tugs at the heartstrings with its love story, ‘Citadel: Honey Bunny’ is set against the colorful and dynamic backdrop of the 1990s. Adding to the ensemble are stars like Kay Kay Menon, Simran, Soham Majumdar, Shivankit Singh Parihar, Kashvi Majmundar, Saquib Saleem, and Sikandar Kher, further enriching the Indian Citadel universe with their talents.

The Cherry on top, the global version of ‘Citadel’ features Priyanka Chopra alongside Richard Madden, creating a link between the Indian adaptation and its international counterpart.
