The shoot for the series begins sometime next year and the series is touted as one of the biggest attractions to date of Amazon Prime in India for 2023. The international version featured Priyanka Chopra in a key role. The source also added that “It’s neither a remake nor an adaptation. Given that the espionage genre has a universal reach, the makers have decided on a spin-off to Citadel in India. The idea is to set the premise against the backdrop of Indian characters and take it to a global level.”
