Streaming service, Netflix, sure sees India as a potential market. A recent report by DNA suggests that Indians are one of the top binge watchers on Netflix. With series like Stranger Things, Riverdale, House of Cards, Mater of None, Netflix has become hugely popular in India.Well, they are about to get even more popular, as superstar Shah Rukh Khan has joined hands with them. Putting an end to all speculations, SRK and Netflix announced today that they are teaming up for a series based on a book, Bard of Blood.

The new multi-lingual Netflix original series, in partnership with Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, is based on the book, Bard of Blood, penned by young Indian author, Bilal Siddiqi. The first season of the series will have 8 episodes filled with high-octane action; something that the makers claim has been never experimented with by the Indian film and TV industry.

Set against the backdrop of the Indian subcontinent, the multilingual series will tell the story of an expelled spy, Kabir Anand who is recalled from his new life as a Shakespeare professor in Panchgani to save his country and long-lost love. A combination of combat skills, intellectual background and personal circumstances propel Kabir to avenge the past and face his deadliest enemies in a race against time.

Surely Netflix is looking to expand its territory in India. You see, Shah Rukh Khan is not the only one venturing into the world of Netflix. Saif Ali Khan is going to star in a series based on the novel, Sacred Games. The actor is shooting for the series in Mumbai since the past two months, under the supervision of Anurag Kashyap. The actor will be seen playing a turban-clad cop in the upcoming noir drama.


In a statement released, Shah Rukh Khan has said, “We have always tried to create world class content and entertainment from India. Netflix has shown that Indian stories have a global audience and we would love to use this platform and its reach to tell more stories”

Venky Mysore, CEO of Red Chillies added, “We are delighted to extend our partnership to the Netflix Original series. Gaurav Verma and our team at Red Chillies have put it together and we can’t wait to bring this thrilling nail-biter to screens around the world.

“We believe in the global vision of Red Chillies to create groundbreaking content out of India. It’s exciting to deepen our relationship with Red Chillies and expand our slate of originals in India,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix Founder and CEO. “We are thrilled to work with a brilliant, young writer like Bilal Siddiqi and take his gripping, inventive storytelling to Netflix members worldwide.”
