Amazon India’s second web series ‘Breathe’ a psychological thriller will release on 26 January, 2018.
The trailer of the show was launched today by the cast of ‘Breathe’ including R. Madhavan, Amit Sadh, Sapna Pabbi, Neelima Kulkarni, Atharva along with Vijay Subramaniam, Vikram Malhotra and Mayank Sharma were present.
‘Breathe’ marks the first time that Madhavan is exploring the digital platform after acting in films for the last 20 years.
The story of ‘Breathe’ also has an element of organ donation.
In the series, R Madhavan is in search of organ so that he saves his child’s life.
During the press meet, Madhavan said in real life, he had registered for organ donation 10 years ago.
“I have registered for Organ donation 10 years ago and I think organ donation is a great thing. When you know that your one step is saving five lives, it should be encouraged. At the same time, there is a misconception about organ donation that the body might get distorted and all, but in the show, we have shown an insight of organ donation. Having said that, our show is not to propagate organ donation. It is a thriller and it is a good story.”
Speaking about being part of digital platform he said, “Yes, it is a new platform where if we are providing good content, we can reach a wider audience. But then that content has to be high in quality because it is going worldwide. Digital content is private viewing whereas cinema is a community viewing, so the content are different in nature.”
As southern superstars Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan have announced their entry into politics. At the trailer launch of the Amazon Prime Original series ‘Breathe’, Madhavan was asked if he wants to get into politics.
He said, “I am not politically inclined and I do not want to be a politician. I am doing my service in acting and I am happy with it.”
“If people are joining politics with the intention of serving for the betterment of the nation, it is good. When young people joined politics coming from a background of the common man, like the one happened in the US when Barack Obama became President, young people get a visionary. That is good for the nation,” adds Madhavan.
