Barely a four days have passed since Sacred Games season two, and Netflix India has already moved on to its next original offering, the spy thriller series Bard of Blood.
Bard of Blood is an eight-episode thriller series that will be streaming on Netflix from September 27. It is Shah Rukh Khan’s first production for the streaming service and has Emraan Hashmi in the lead. Bard of Blood also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Vineet Singh, Rajat Kapoor, Kirti Kulhari and Jaideep Ahlawat.
The show will be a digital debut for both Shah Rukh and Emraan. Shah Rukh was last seen in Zero and has currently not signed on for any other film. He earlier also stated that he planned to take a break from films to give more time to his family and his children. Despite taking a break from acting in films, he lent his voice in the Hindi version of Disney’s The Lion King. In the film Shah Rukh voiced King Mufasa, Simba’s father.
Emraan has been less seen on the big screen lately but is still busy at work. Speaking to PTI, he revealed that he is picking his scripts more carefully now and wants his fans to see him in a variety of roles. Well let’s hope this new role entertains us and gives Emraan the diversity he’s looking for.
