Netflix India is all set to start work on another Indian thriller after Vikram Chandra’s 'Sacred Games'. This time, the series will be an adaption of Bilal Siddiqi’s bestseller 'Bard of the Blood'.
Starring Emraan Hashmi in the lead, the espionage tale will be produced by Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
The series will also feature actors like Vineet Kumar Singh, Kirti Kulhari and Sobhita Dhulipala. While the show is already on floors, it is expected to get completed by next year.
Red Chillies Entertainment’s Gaurav Verma took to Twitter to share his first day excitement. He wrote:

In response, Shah Rukh retweeted Verma’s tweet and said: “This is one of the most exciting stuff Red Chillies and your team is doing my man. Love to you all.”
Published in 2015, 'Bard of Blood' is Siddiqi’s first novel. 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 a long-lost love.
