Emraan Hashmi is going to star in Netflix India’s series Bard of Blood, produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and based on the novel of the same name by Bilal Siddqui. The announcement teaser for the series was also released, and it has Hashmi picking up the book, “God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.” The series is going to be eight episodes long. It is an espionage thriller, about a defected spy Kabir Anand who goes back to work after living a life as Shakespeare professor in Panchgani to save the country.
Shah Rukh Khan spoke about the project in a statement, “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.”
Emraan Hashmi has begun shooting for his next movie, Cheat India. Bard of Blood is a multilingual series and the characters are going to interact with each other in Hindi, Urdu, English and several other languages. This is certainly an exciting project for the actor, and is surely going to be a way for him to reach the international audiences. The series could be another hit like the gangster drama, Sacred Games.
