Now, its Indian headquarters have announced three new original feature films and the cast members of its previously announced film titled Freedom. Also because nine of the top ten most popular series and films on Netflix India in 2019 were Indian content, with the lone exception of Michael Bay’s 6 Underground starring Ryan Reynolds.

According to Variety, Bollywood’s ace filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is all set to create a film called Choked for Netflix, where a bank cashier’s life changes when she finds an almost unlimited source of money in her kitchen. The film will star Saiyami Kher of Breathe 2 and Roshan Mathew from The Elder One. On the other hand, Vikramaditya Motwane of Sacred Games fame will be directing another film called AK vs AK in which a filmmaker kidnaps the daughter of a movie star. While the star searches for his daughter, the director films the desperate search in real time for his next blockbuster movie. This production will star none other than the ageless Bollywood celebrity Anil Kapoor alongside Kashyap. Now isn’t that one to watch out for?

Karan Johar’s The Other will be a four-part anthology on complex relationships which includes Shefali Shah, Manav Kaul, Nusrat Bharucha, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Jaideep Ahlawat Bard of Blood. Freedom, on the other hand, by Dibakar Banerjee Shanghai is set 25 years in the future and traces the history of a family that are tangled with the personal and ideological histories of India. The cast includes Naseeruddin Shah, Manisha Koirala, Huma Qureshi, Kalki Koechlin and Neeraj Kabi. Moreover, Vir Das: For India, a stand-up comedy show, will hit Netflix on January 26.
