Netflix is upping its India content library with 10 more original films to be streamed by 2020. That takes the number of upcoming Netflix Indian originals up to 15. For its new slate, the company has tapped into India’s best creative resources, including Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment that will be producing Class of ’83 (the story of a morally upright policeman-turned-trainer).
Other titles lined up are Ghost Stories that reunites directors Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap of Lust Stories (Netflix’ 2018 release), House Arrest (the story of a man trapped in his own fears), Serious Men (adapted from Manu Joseph’s novel of the same name), Guilty (produced by Karan Johar’s Dharmatic Entertainment) and others.
In a statement to the media, Srishti Behl Arya, Director – International Original Film, India, Netflix, said:”When Netflix launched in India, we changed the way Indian audiences enjoy their films. Given our diversity, history and culture, India is home to powerful stories waiting to be told to audiences around the world. The depth of talent and vision of our creators is enabling us to create films our members will love. We want to be a home for India’s finest filmmakers where their stories travel to more people than ever before.”
