The advent of digitization has witnessed an influx of web content that certainly has transformed the content viewing experience of the viewers who were limited to television and film content. As web series are unlocking the subjects that are beyond the clichés, viewers' preferences for the same have been moulded to enrich their entertainment experience.

After Race 3, Saqib Saleem is all set to foray into the digital world with Rangbaaz. The actor will be portraying a character which is based on a true story. The actor will be undergoing some physical transformation, apart from sporting a moustache in the series.

Commenting about Saqib Saleem's role in the web series, a source close to the development revealed to a leading daily, "It's a role which is drastically different from what Saqib has played so far. The actor will be seen sporting a similar look to that of a gangster and has already started prepping up for the role. He has grown a mustache for the role."

Talking about his decision to go digital, Saqib Saleem revealed, "When I heard the story, I found it really interesting. It is about a young guy becoming a gangster in UP in the '90s. The character is so complex. This isn't about glorifying a gangster, rather telling a story that needs to be told."

Meanwhile, Saqeeb Saleem's recent release Race 3 starring Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah, Anil Kapoor and Freddy Daruwala tanked at the box office and garnered poor reviews from the audience and the critics.
