Netflix Adds to India Slate With Anil Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap Projects
Netflix India has announced three new original feature films, and the cast for its previously announced film “Freedom.”
As revealed by Variety in December, the latest from prolific auteur Anurag Kashyap (“Gangs of Wasseypur”) will be “Choked,” where a bank cashier’s life changes when she finds an almost unlimited source of money in her kitchen. Saiyami Kher (“Breathe 2”) and Roshan Mathew (“The Elder One”) star.
Vikramaditya Motwane (“Sacred Games”) directs “AK vs AK” in which a filmmaker kidnaps the daughter of a movie star, and while the star searches for his daughter the director films the desperate search in real time for his next blockbuster movie. Anil Kapoor (“Slumdog Millionaire”) stars alongside Kashyap.
Part of producer Karan Johar’s Dharmatic Entertainment’s deal with Netflix is “The Other,” a four-part anthology on complex relationships. The directors are being finalized. The cast includes Shefali Shah (“Delhi Crime”), Manav Kaul (“Music Teacher”), Nusrat Bharucha (“Dream Girl”), Fatima Sana Shaikh (“Dangal”) and Jaideep Ahlawat (“Bard of Blood”).
