Real-life uncle and nephew and stars who enjoy a huge fan following, Venkatesh and Rana Daggubati are all set to collaborate for the first time for a Netflix web series, Rana Naidu. It is an official adaptation of the American crime drama, Ray Donovan.

Bankrolled by Sunder Aaron of Locomotive Global Media LLP, Rana Naidu will be helmed by Karan Anshuman and Suparn Verma. The story will chronicle the life of Rana Naidu, a professional fixer for Bollywood and Mumbai’s elite.

Rana took to his social media to share the news. He wrote, "Always wanted to share the screen with my uncle the VICTORY V @venkateshdaggubati and my dream is finally coming true. As much as I love him off-screen, in “Rana Naidu” we are going to be at each other's throats. #RanaNaidu, coming soon on Netflix."
