Actor Rana Daggubati is one among those actors who have recently set off on a digital journey by acting in Viu India's bilingual web series Social. With his high rising successful career after being a pivotal part of the Baahubali franchise, Rana looks all set to break all the records with a digital hit like Social. In a number of media interactions and interviews, Rana has claimed that he is very happy to work in different genres and platforms.

The New Indian Express quotes him as saying, "This is my first digital fiction and I strongly feel that with Social, we are offering some exciting yet relevant content to our viewers. It is a story that will connect with the digital-first audience and as an actor I am glad to be experimenting with different genres and platforms. Today, social media is a big part of our lives and with this show we are portraying the need to be aware of the reality and consequences of our actions in the digital world," he further added.

This 13-episode series is co-produced by Whacked Out Media and Guru Films. The show was launched on 8 September. As the makers of the series expect it to spread awareness on the increasing rate of crimes in the virtual world, the story goes around a missing girl who has been a victim of social media harassment. The series also stars Naveen Kasturia, Priya Banerjee and Abdul Razzaq among others.
