Shah Rukh Khan is the biggest name in Bollywood. He is closely associated with the streaming world through his production house, Red Chillies Entertainment. Red Chillies’ latest project is the Netflix Original based on the novel Bard of Blood. In the series, Emraan Hashmi plays the main character, that of a RAW agent who’s out to get the ISI and Mullah Omar.
While Shah Rukh is associated with the project as producer only, there’s a buzz now that he will also be part of the web series, playing a character. There’s no clarity as to which character Shah Rukh Khan will be playing. The series also stars Vineet Kumar Singh, Kirti Kulhari and Sobhita Dhulipala, along with Jaideep Ahalwat.
There’s been a lot of buzz around Shah Rukh Khan’s next outing as an actor. There’s buzz that he has opted out of the Rakesh Sharma biopic, after critics panned his other space-oriented film, Zero. He has not announced any other film this year, so it’s quite possible he’s looking at taking the streaming plunge.
