Shahrukh Khan’s Red Chillies ties up with Netflix for political thriller

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and streaming service Netflix have tied up to produce an original series based on the book ‘Bard of Blood’.

Penned by a young Indian author Bilal Siddiqi, the book will be adapted into an eight-episode high-octane political espionage thriller series.

“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,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.

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. The series will be shot on a location and the characters will interact in Hindi, Urdu, English and other languages.

“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. We are thrilled to work with a brilliant, young writer like Bilal Siddiqi and take his gripping, inventive storytelling to Netflix members worldwide,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix Founder and CEO.

    From playing a dwarf to working with Jab Tak Hai Jaan co-stars, the excitement around the film is palpable. And if a report in DNA is to be believed, Shah Rukh Khan has a surprise for his fans this New Year.

    The report suggests that Shah Rukh will officially announce the title of his next with Aanand L Rai. “Shah Rukh and the team have locked the title already. They will announce it on New Year. That’s the plan as of now,” a source told the daily.

          Abe ye srkian ko 2014 dimag me beth gya lagta hai kyuki tabh se hi bade dada srk ka career khatam hua hai hahahaha

    • Bollyarena/Indicine is a lot of fun but feel the need to take a break from time to time to freshen up my mind. May be reading the trolling comments continuously start impacting my positivity. Plus just to keep a check that I am not completely addicted to it and can keep away from it completely whenever I want.

      Live in peace. Life is too short to waste in negativity. Take care everyone.

      Like SRK says in RNBJ:

      Hum hein rahi pyar ke
      Phir milenge chalte chalte ….

    • Akshay bhikari ka koi dum tha nahi 2015 tak to deshbhakti ka drama karne Laga or ab 120cr tak kama leta hai nahi to 2015tak 60-70cr tak jaata tha

      Isme kabhi 1rs charity nahi Kia kyuki unhe dene se deshbhakti ka thapppa thori lgega .. army Ko Thora SA paisa de Dia uska advantage ye hai :
      1- taki koi Canada nationality pe Sawaal na kare
      2 – taki usko deshbhakti ka title mil jaye
      3 – taki usme movie pehle se zyada kamae ..pehle 60cr kamata tha fir deshbhakti ka drama Kia fir 120cr ..mtlb har saal pehle se 180cr zyada kama rha iska movie (60×3=180cr )or usme se kuch lakh army Ko de rha deshbhakti ka drama barkarar rakhne ke liye

      Isme khud ek video me kaha ki retire ke Baad ye Canada shift ho jaega ..shame on Akshay farzi deshbhakt worst human being

      • Salman khan ke being human trust me akshay donate karta hai. thoda apne ko update kar news padh inke bare me kuch jankari to le. Uske baad me aake yaha pe batana. Kisi ke bare me kuch bolne se pehle unke bare me kuch jaan bhi liya karo,,

        • Abe kya kuch bhi bol rha hai tum ..charity ka mtlb smjhta hai , ?..jitna bhi Ameer aadmi bara bara bisiness man ye SB charity krta hai ..but Akshay saal me 1 2 baat charity ke deta hai vo bhi 10 15 lakh ka ..unhe dene se deshbhakti ka thapppa thori milega Canadian Ko

  2. Acting rank only main lead actors
    Srk
    Aamir
    Hritik
    Ajay
    Emraan
    Ranbir
    Akshay
    Ranveer
    Shahid
    Sushant

    Or Mai srk fan nahi Mai neutral hoon ..Srk ke pass bhut talent hai but vo jhms happy new year jaise maha bakwaas movie me kaam kar ke apna time energy talent reputation SB Barbara kar rha …my name is Khan me acting dekho kya mast tha

    salman vs srk initials( 90’s decade and 2010-17 decade)

    90’s decade
    we have datas available only from 94 . at that time 50 lacks was considered a good initial and then that decade ended around 1.4 crore plus being the highest with hindustan ki kasam.
    let’s have a look at all the range of initials starting from 50 lacks to 1.4 crore and see how salman and srk has fared in it. i am considering only solo starrers and that’s why trimurti and karan arjun are not considered for srk while karan arjun, jeet, khamoshi and hddcs are not considerd for salman.

    1. 50 lacks
    srk-11
    salman-8
    verdict- srk ahead
    2. 60 lacks
    srk-8
    salman-7
    verdict- srk ahead
    3. 70 lacks
    salman-7
    srk-5
    verdict- salman ahead
    4. 80 lacks
    salman- 6
    srk-5
    verdict- salman ahead
    5. 90 lacks
    salman-4
    srk-4
    verdict-equal
    6. 1crore
    salman-3
    srk-2
    verdict- salman ahead
    7. 1.1 crore
    salman-2
    srk-1
    verdict- salman ahead
    8. 1.2 crore
    salman-2
    srk-0
    verdict- salman ahead
    salman or srk both failed to reach 1.3 and 1.4 crore range

    so out of the 8 ranges salman leads in 5 and srk in 2. so salman has a 5-2 lead over srk in 90’s.

    2010-17 decade
    this decade started with 10 crore plus being considred very good opening and now the highest range has been 35 crore plus for bollywood. so let’s have a comparison between these 2 stars starting from 10 crore range and ending at 35 crore range

    1. 10 crore
    salman-11
    srk-9
    verdict-salman ahead
    2. 15 crore
    salman-9
    srk-5
    verdict- salman ahead
    3. 20 crore
    salman-7
    srk-4
    verdict- salman ahead
    4. 25 crore
    salman-4
    srk-2
    verdict- salman ahead
    5. 30 crore
    salman-3
    srk-2
    verdict-salman ahead
    6. 35 crore
    salman-2
    srk-1
    verdict-salman ahead

    so this decade salman has a clean sweep over srk with 6-0 lead.

    so we can say that salman is ahead of srk in terms of initial both in 90’s decade and this decade. this decade there is no competition but yes srk gave some kind of competition in 90’s still was way behind.
    in 2000-09 decade srk was ahead of salman .

    • Get a life dude

      All your life you will keep doing this. Funny part is neither SRK nor Salman care what you prove through statistics.

  4. When will you announce your next movie SRK …. expected an announcement on your birthday … plz announce soon

  5. Prashant abhishek Reply

    if u want to give wrong information then keep this statistics to yourself.SRK have 3 1 crore openers in 90s
    1.Trimurti
    2.Koyla
    3.Baadshah
    So verdict is equal but SRK achieve this in 1995 but your Salman struggle till 1999.
    SRK have 3 record opener in 90s – Karan Arjun, Trimurti and koyla and Salman have 2 in which Karan Arjun opening was due to SRK.
    So, SRK was ahead of Salman from debut to 2009.

  6. Great Job RCE…..I hope this Series will break all the records….

    Happy to see some news on Srk……

  7. I also want India to make some Superhero kind of Stuff….Honestly speaking till now none of Superhero movies has impressed me, all are very low in term of quality, also they did not convince me with their storyline,
    Krish gets his power from Alien, he touch his head once and he become superhero (seriously)….Alien tha ki GOD….
    In Tiger Sharof movie he get powers from Tree (WOW),
    I cannot consider G-One as Superhero because he is Robot….

    Yaar isse Behtar to Shaktimaan ki Story thi, atleast believable toh hai…….Now let see how is Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming Superhero movie is, I hope it has some god storyline…….YRF and RCE have some good VFX team, I think they should work together…..
    I am not bashing anyone here, just saying that the way they got those powers are very Silly and Stupid…..I hope we can create some good Superhero’s…….Actually we have some like Nagraj, Super Commando Dhruv, Parmanu etc (though I seriously hate their costume color)….But we don’t make movies on them, don’t know why…….

    Salman vs Shahrukh initial in 90s
    94 – Anjaam opening > Andaz apna apna
    95- top 2 belongs to SRK but if we talk about solo then Raam jaane > Veergati
    96- Army > Khamoshi
    97- koyla > Judwaa
    98- Dil se > Bandhan
    99- Biwi no 1 > Baadshah
    So we can see SRK have 5 – 1 lead over Salman in opening in 90s.in 2000- 09 decade SRK was also ahead.
    So undoubtedly SRK >> Salman in opening in 90s and also from debut to 2009.

    • Uff yaar agar ek bewakoofi kr raha hai history ki baatein krke toh tum kyun wahi bewakoogi kr rahe ho prashant dono hi superstars hai yaar tum logon ko aapas mein jhagda krke kya mill jayega..@prashant
