Soon, Netflix will release a new Netflix original series based on the critically-acclaimed best-selling novel Sacred Games by Indian author Vikram Chandra.
Shot in India, this Hindi-English series will be produced in partnership with Anurag Kashyap's Phantom Films and will be available globally.
Set in Mumbai, Sacred Games delves into the city's intricate web of organized crime, corruption, politics and espionage that lie beneath India's economic renaissance.
The author, Vikram Chandra, commented, "Over the last few years, I've watched with great excitement and pleasure as Netflix has transformed narrative television with its ground-breaking, genre-bending shows. I'm confident that all the colour and vitality and music of the fictional world I've lived with for so long will come fully alive on the large-scale canvas provided by Netflix. I'm thrilled to be working with Netflix and Phantom Films."
Netflix was launched in India this year and allows subscribers to catch films or TV shows for a fee of Rs 500 per month.
