Naga Chaitanya and Vikram K Kumar’s first ever web series has started streaming on OTT since last night. The Series had gained a lot of attention because of the intriguing promos, and Dhootha Web Series turns out to be a gripping mystery thriller.
Story: Sagar (Naga Chaitanya), who is widely recognized as a journalist, has been appointed as the chief editor of Samachar newspaper. Sagar is elated with this promotion, but his happiness has faded due to many tragedies. The fact that some newspaper clippings predicted these tragedies came across as a bigger shock to him. Does Sagar’s life have any hidden chapters? Was he able to uncover the secret behind the newspaper clippings? Answers to these questions form the rest of the story.
