The Citadel India series is an upcoming Indian spy-thriller web series, featuring Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. Titled 'Citadel: Honey Bunny,’ this series brings to us a heart-warming love story set in the 1990s that has a lot of gripping espionage elements in it. Amazon Prime Video is yet to share the precise release date of the show, but even when Citadel India has featured in just the 2024 lineup reveal of Prime, the Internet can’t seem to stop fantasising and expecting what the show will bring to the audience.
As we await the show’s release with eager anticipation, let us look at some lesser-known details about the Citadel India Series to understand the essence of the show better. From casting to creators here is everything you need to know about Citadel India.

Here is all about the upcoming Prime series Citadel India

Prime Video India recently revealed the first poster of Citadel: Honey Bunny along with a long caption, revealing all the important details of Citadel India. The caption began by confirming the show's name and telling the audience that the series will be filled with a sequence of gripping events that will have them feeling their heartbeats. Loaded with powerful action sequences, and a heartwarming love story, Citadel: Honey Bunny lets you experience the Indianness of romance within the much-appreciated and loved Citadel universe.

The Citadel India cast is as exciting as its plot because, for the first time, we see the on-screen pairing of the superstars Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu via this show. Samantha is celebrated for her hit role in the Prime series, The Family Man and now she is all set to play the character of Honey. Varun Dhawan, on the other hand, will be playing the role of Bunny in Citadel: Honey Bunny and we can’t wait to see the two of them share the screen and play these interesting characters in the action series.

Alongside Varun and Samantha, the Citadel India cast also includes a talented ensemble of phenomenal actors, such as Kay Kay Menon, Soham Majumdar, Simran, Kashvi Majmundar, Shivankit Parihar, Saquib Saleem, and Sikandar Kher.

Story of Citadel by Russo Brothers

If you’re eager to watch the Citadel India trailer and haven’t yet watched the 2023 Russo Brothers’ creation Citadel on Prime Video, you’ll be delighted to know that the show promises to be a roller coaster ride of suspense, action, romance and adventure. Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra played the roles of two elite agents, Mason Kane and Nadia Sinh in Citadel.
Now, in its Indian adaptation (which PeeCee vouches is not a remake of Citadel), we’re excited to see Samantha and Varun play the roles of Honey and Bunny respectively. The Indian version of Citadel is supposed to be a spin-off soon to be followed by its Italian, Spanish and Mexican versions.

The powerful duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, popularly known as Raj & DK, are the makers of the Citadel India series. The screenplay is to be done by Sita R. Menon, who has been widely appreciated for his phenomenal work in The Family Man. It is interesting to note that Citadel Honey Bunny is a collaborated production of Raj & DK’s D2R Films, the Russo brothers’ AGBO, and Amazon MGM Studios.

The first Citadel featuring Priyanka Chopra was a huge success on Amazon Prime Video and therefore a similar eagerness is building up for Citadel Honey Bunny among viewers. The show promises to be the perfect blend of romance, action and intrigue capable of seamlessly engaging the global audience.

There has been a lot of buzz about the show Citadel and now that Citadel India is in the making, viewers are curious to know what to expect from the show. As per Amazon Prime Video’s social media post, Citadel: Honey Bunny is a captivating tale of deeply exhilarating moments and gripping action scenes that enhance the charm of the central love story. Set in the vintage tapestry of the 90s, Citadel: Honey Bunny is a classic Indian love story set within the Citadel universe.

The yellow poster of the show that is available on Amazon Prime Video’s social media handle reveals the characters of Varun and Samantha holding guns and taking aim, giving us a clear hint at whom to expect as the lead characters of Citadel India. Under the meticulous direction of Raj & DK, Citadel India promises to be a riveting story full of romance and intriguing challenges.

Finally, answering the most awaited question about the Citadel India release date. So far the makers have not disclosed the exact release date for ‘Citadel: Honey Bunny'. But going by Amazon Prime Video's 2024 slate announcement, we can expect the Citadel India release date to be somewhere in the later part of this year. While we eagerly await more information about the show, do not forget to take a glance at the amazing Citadel India trailer.
