After the big-budget “Veeram,” Tigmanshu Dhulia’s war drama “Raag Desh” and Reema Kagti’s “Gold,” Kunal Kapoor will now star in another big-budget project, “Doga,” a superhero series.
“Doga” is by far the most ambitious project I have been part of. I have dreamt of playing this character for a long time, and I’m very happy that’s it taking shape now. Doga is a superhero, the kind of which has never been seen. He is dark, angry and an anti-hero.”
“Doga” is considered to be among the most popular superheroes created in India. Created in 1992 by Raj Comics, it remains one of the highest-selling comic series twenty-five years down.
Unlike other superheroes, Doga has no super powers and solely relies on his combat skills, especially in martial arts and boxing, and his physical strength.
“He is the ultimate badass and is built like a beast. Besides that, there will have different martial arts that I’ll have to learn”, Kunal added.

Manish Gupta from Raj Comics said, “Since its inception, Raj Comics has entertained millions of fans with such popular comics’ characters like Nagraj, Super Commando Dhruv, Doga and many more. Doga is a very ambitious project for us, and we are recruiting some of the best minds and creative talent to bring this on screen.”
Asked if there will be a movie as well, Kapoor said, “There definitely will be, but right now the series is our focus. The project is to start later this year.”
Kunal Kapoor will also be seen on the big screen shortly, in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s war drama “Raagdesh” and Reema Kagti’s “Gold” starring Akshay Kumar.
