Irrfan Khan is a force to reckon with. He has acted in some of the best Bollywood and Hollywood films and will now be seen in ‘Tokyo Trial’, a series on Netflix that focuses on an investigation that went on for around a decade, into the events in the Pacific during and after WWII.

And looks took no time in bashing the kind of entertainment that the Indian industry has currently. In a scathing interview, he said that Indians do not have the passion to make the kind of web series that are done in the west. He also said commented on the web series that are coming out of the Indian film industry at the moment, calling them ‘stupid comedies’.

Well, Irrfan isn’t completely right but he isn’t wrong too. The Indian web space is cluttered with comedies and so called ‘new age comedies’, but there are some different series that are worth mentioning, like ‘The Test Case’, starring Nimrat Kaur, which is set in the Indian army and gives a fictional account of India’s first female soldier who signs up for the Special Forces and to face action.
