Late actor Irrfan Khan's son Babil Khan who is making his acting debut with Netflix film Qala has been reportedly roped in to play the lead protagonist in Yash Raj Films' debut web-series, which will be directed by Rahul Rawail's son Shiv Rawail. The production banner is opening a separate digital wing, where they will bankroll OTT content. As per the reports, the 5 part series headlined by Babil Khan will be an intriguing investigative thriller, which is set in Bhopal and will go on floors in November.
Shiv Rawail was earlier supposed to make his directorial debut with a superhero film starring Ajay Devgn, Ahaan Pandey and Manushi Chillar. But the film has been postponed indefinitely as the budget is not feasible looking at the current scenario of COVID 19. Though it is said that Shiv might start this film after wrapping the series with Babil.

Talking about Babil Khan's Qala, it is produced by Anushka Sharma and her brother Karnesh Sharma's production banner, Clean Slate Filmz. Directed by Anvitaa Dutt, the film also stars Tripti Dimri and Swastika Mukherjee in pivotal roles.
In June, Babil Khan had shared a picture posing with filmmaker Shoojit Sircar and producer Ronnie Lahiri announcing his second acting venture. While sharing the post Babil wrote, "Honoured to work with you legends (aye it's a shame we didn't take a picture together @zaynmarie)." Producer Ronnie also shared the pictures on Instagram and penned that he was honoured to take forward Irrfan Khan's legacy. "Honoured to take forward your legacy Irrfan sir. Worked with a legend like you, and now Babil. If this is not Providence, what is it?," wrote the producer.
