Fans of fantasy tv were delighted to see Netflix India’s latest social media post which suggested they might be commissioning an Indian remake of the popular TV series Lucifer.

The post was captioned with a quote from the TV show saying, “Before you fight us, we have already fought amongst ourselves and this is the result. Did we get it right?”
One fan showed their approval of the Indian cast, writing, “We believe radhika aapte can play all roles!”. Other die hard Lucifer fans were concerned with the casting, with one writing, “No way!!! It's no justice to Tom Ellis”.
