Watch the teaser here:
Talking about Bard of Blood, this marks Shah Rukh Khan's first association with Netflix India and also marks the debut of actor Emraan Hashmi. The show is an edge-of-the-seat thriller, which releases on September 27, 2019. Speaking about Bard of Blood, Emraan had told mid-day, "It's like shooting three films simultaneously. We have seven episodes, each 45-minute-long. We are catering to 190 countries; so, the concept of 'Indianising' things doesn't apply here. It has to be real; it can't be illogical and jingoistic like most of our films."
Shah Rukh Khan's first web show, Bard of Blood is based on Bilal Siddiqui's book by the same name. The series is set against the backdrop of the Indian sub-continent. The multi-lingual series will tell the story of an expelled spy, Kabir Anand who is recalled from his new life as a professor in Panchgani to save his country and long-lost love.
Speaking about Shah Rukh Khan, he was last seen on the big screens in Aanand L Rai's Zero with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. At the tenth edition of the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, where he was invited as the chief guest, SRK spoke about Zero. He said, "I just finished the last film (Zero) I made and to put it lightly, it was a disaster. I said to myself that let me enjoy a little bit of un-success as I had success for so long. So I have taken some time off for next four or five months."
