Red Chillies and Netflix

Red Chillies and Netflix join hands to give a global launch to home-grown multilingual series based on the book Bard of Blood!

Bilal Siddiqi’s magnum opus Bard of Blood is all set to be revamped into a multilingual thriller series which will be released worldwide by Netflix in collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan’s banner Red Chillies Entertainment.

Set in India, the Bard of Blood deals with the story of Kabir Anand who used to work as a spy for the country. As destiny would have it, he finds himself working as a Shakespeare professor in Panchgani and starting a new life. But his life takes another thrilling turn when he is recalled to save his country and long-lost love.

According to a study conducted by Netflix, India is the second largest consumer of Netflix videos after Mexico. Therefore, their plan to expand their projects in India doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Moreover, majority of Netflix’s traffic comes from shows that have a local flavour to them, like Narcos which is a story of Latin America but enjoys the appreciation of global audiences.

This book written by a 19-year-old is all set to be a rage in India!
