If we talk about the most underrated actors in Bollywood, R Madhavan is definitely going to make it to that list. Comparing him to the likes of the Khans or the newbies in the Bollywood industry, Maddy’s Bollywood career hasn’t exactly been that great. Despite that, he has a loyal fan following who wait with bated breath to see him on the big screen.
This time, however, he is taking a different route and is coming to your TV screens. Or on your Amazon Prime account, to be precise.
Over the last few weeks, Madhavan has taken to his social media to give us small glimpses of his digital series ‘Breathe’ with Amazon Prime.

And we were beyond stoked when we read the official synopsis which says, “Breathe is a gritty psychological drama that follows the lives of ordinary men faced with extraordinary circumstances. Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh), a brilliant but unconventional officer of the Mumbai Crime Branch, puts the pieces together of seemingly unconnected deaths that lead to an unlikely suspect – the affable Danny Mascarenhas (R. Madhavan). As Danny faces the difficult choice between morality and the slim possibility of saving his dying son’s life, Kabir will not stop till he cracks the case and delivers justice.”
And finally, today, a teaser was released.

We get to see some chilling visuals of someone getting drowned and a woman being hit by the car while Madhavan’s voice in the background thrills us to the core.

Bottom line being, the teaser has left us wanting for more and will do the same to you.
Have a look:
The show is set to be Amazon’s first trilingual digital series and will stream in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
Directed by Mayank Sharma, the series also stars Amit Sadh and Sapna Pabbi and is set to release on 26th January across 200+ countries and territories worldwide.
