In a statement, the actor said, "I am super excited for my first-ever association with Netflix. Last year has been a bumpy ride for everyone around the world and my motive is to make people forget their worries and welcome this new year with love, laughter and positivity. I always wanted to be on Netflix but I didn’t have their number (laughs). It’s a project close to my heart and I cannot wait to share more details with my fans soon."
