2. Get out and Red Chillies are together
The show comes from the famous Blumhouse productions along with Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. Earlier, Red Chillies has brought Bard of Blood while Blumhouse productions have made a masterpiece “Get Out”. We are thrilled with the desi-videshi combo which will bring something wildly entertaining.
3. Terrifying monsters and Centuries old-curses
Who doesn’t love watching the mysteries getting unfolded when centuries-old-curse is broken. Although, there are only scenes of monsters but it has got us all excited.
4. A fight with two-centuries-old British Indian Army officer Betaal and its army of zombies
The show doesn’t seem to be about just killing some random zombies. The zombies are from British India Army Officer’s battalion and when the local police will fight against them, it will fuel our patriotism tanks. All we would need is that “70 minutes” kind of dialogue that SRK performed in Chak De India.
5. A fresh cast
A fresh cast of Vineet Kumar Singh, Aahana Kumra with exceptional acting abilities are the main leads of series which will start streaming on Netflix from May 24 onwards.
