After receiving appreciation for his 2018 film Manmarziyaan, Abhishek Bachchan is all set to venture into the web space after a gap of two years. The actor, who recently completed 20 years in the film industry, will make his digital debut with Amazon Prime Video's Breathe: Into The Shadows. The web series will stream on July 10.
