Giving strong competition to its fellow contenders in the webspace, Netflix India will be hosting the premieres of 17 titles over the next few months including Anurag Basu’s Ludo, Class of ’83, and the Sanjay Dutt-starrer Torbaaz. Mira Nair’s A Suitable Boy which stars Tabu, Ishaan Khatter, and Tanya Maniktala in the lead roles is also set to arrive on the platform.
“We are excited to share our lineup of stories across formats and multiple genres. We know our members have unique tastes, moods, and needs – sometimes, they want to lean back and watch a delightful comedy, and at other times, they want a pulse-pounding thriller that brings them to the edge of their seats. We are so proud to bring these diverse stories created by acclaimed and emerging storytellers and producing partners. Together with the finest stories from around the world and our rapidly growing selection of licensed titles, we want to give our members something to discover and love on Netflix every day,” said Monika Shergill, VP-Content, Netflix India.
