“Over 75% of Prime Video India’s customers watch international shows and movies in English or local

languages on the service. With localisation in Indian languages, over 25% of the total viewing time of

international shows and movies is now in local languages. Keeping that in mind, we’ll be releasing

Citadel not just in English and Hindi, but also in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam,” said Sushant

Sreeram, country director, Prime Video, India
, “With Citadel, we are building an interconnected universe that takes borderless entertainment up a notch. Each Citadel series is locally created, produced, and filmed in-region, and stars top talent, forming a distinct global franchise. We are thrilled to be a part of the global Citadel universe and build this franchise together with an Indian instalment that is currently in production. I am certain that our customers in India will appreciate the scale and ambition that we are

trying to bring to storytelling through Citadel.”

Priyanka Chopra Jonas who plays Nadia Sinh said, “When Jennifer Salke, who is the head of Amazon

Studios, presented Citadel to me, she wanted to create an international, global franchise - an original IP

that truly connects the world. Amazon strongly believes in diversity; and true diversity is represented

internationally, not just by having different skin tones, but also by hearing the way people speak,

actually delving into the culture. And this show has incredible ability to span across every country and

continent. So, I didn’t even know the story and I said yep, doing it.”

Richard Madden who plays Mason Kane shared, “Citadel has been incredibly physically demanding. But I think that's what really is dreamy. It's not simply a gun show or a fight sequence. This is how these two characters interact physically, and how they dance together. We learn in each action sequence a little more about the two of them. Just like in the drama scenes, the stakes are so high because of the adrenaline of what's going on. The show just works both in the drama and action sequences.”
