Netflix has come forward to mention that actor Shah Rukh Khan and his Red Chillies Entertainment will produce a zombie horror for Netflix titled ‘Betaal’ whereas Anushka Sharma and her ‘Clean Slate Films’ will be an executive producer for the series, titled ‘Mai’.
Although Shah Rukh Khan hasn’t had the best of fortune as an actor in some time from now, he has taken the right calls as a producer. His production, ‘Badla’ starring Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan did great business at the box office and was also critically acclaimed. Given that as a positive aspect to the whole situation, Shah Rukh Khan will be hopeful that his decision to financially back ‘Betaal’ would pay off as well.
As far Anushka’s role as an executive producer for ‘Mai’ is considered, Anushka was quoted as saying in media,
“This is my second collaboration with Netflix after ‘Bulbul’ and we are again looking to disrupt the kind of content audiences are consuming. We at Clean Slate Films have been dedicated to making clutter-breaking, powerful stories since our first production and we are looking forward to push the content envelope.”
When asked about what makes Netflix an important partner for her, she revealed that, “The creative freedom to be able to translate these stories to screens that reach a global audience is exciting for us, which is why Netflix is such an important partner.”
