Legacy will be Akshaye Khanna’s debut web series. An excited Akshaye Khanna said:
“It is refreshing to work on content that challenges our boundaries as an industry as a whole. Given the massive scale of the show, we are cognizant of the immense responsibility to deliver our best to create a content piece the audience looks forward to. I’m glad ‘Legacy’ is going to be my first web series.”
Raveena adds, “Legacy presents an interesting tale of power struggle with a lot of drama, which grabbed my attention. It is a fine work articulated interestingly to resonate with a global audience. I am excited to be associated with the show and looking forward to beginning this journey.”
Legacy marks director Vijay Gutte’s second collaboration with Akshaye Khanna after 2019 political drama The Accidental Prime Minister. “I am thrilled to be reuniting with Akshaye for this and exhilarated to have Raveena Tandon on board with us. This talent powerhouse is set for an epic rivalry.”

His diverse roles in – Deewangi, Dil Chahta Hai, Taal, Naqaab are just a taste of what he can do when given the right kind of space.
