Popular actors Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu are going to star together in the Russo Brothers’ Citadel. The film will be helmed by filmmaker duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK.

The Russo brothers and Patrick Moran have developed the original American science fiction drama television series Citadel for Amazon Prime Video. The show is described as "an expansive and groundbreaking global event comprising a mothership series and several local language satellite series" and "an action-packed spy series with a compelling emotional centre," starring Richard Madden as Citadel agent Mason Kane and Priyanka Chopra as Citadel agent Nadia Sinh.

A source close to the Indian spin-off project revealed, “Dhawan and Prabhu have both already begun working on developing the toned bodies needed for Citadel. They will begin their martial arts training at the end of August, and the show should premiere around the end of September or the beginning of October. The training will last for approximately one month. After finishing up the script's revisions, Nidimoru and DK will begin the casting process for the supporting cast in August. A Hollywood action director will also be hired by the show's creators to orchestrate the big combat scenes."
