Netflix India on Wednesday unveiled a line-up of original series, movies, stand-up comedy performances and documentaries.
These include shows headlined by Madhuri Dixit, as well as the returning seasons of audience favourite Delhi Crime and She. Ram Madhvani's upcoming directorial Dhamaka with Kartik Aaryan, Sanya Malhotra's Pagglait, Raveena Tandon's digital debut Aranyak, Comedy Premium League, and Kapil Sharma's much-anticipated collaboration with the streamer are also part of the 2021 slate.
Critically-acclaimed and award-winning musical drama The Disciple, directed by Indian director Chaitanya Tamhane, will also make way to the streamer this year. The Marathi language film, executive-produced by Oscar winner Alfonso Cuaron, made its European premiere at the 77th Venice Film Festival where it won the best screenplay award last year.
Tamil film anthology Navarasa, based on the nine rasas or emotions, presented by Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan is another project to look forward to. The proceeds from the films will go towards the well-being of film workers in Tamil cinema impacted by the pandemic.
