After Bard of Blood and Class of 83, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is now gearing up to produce yet another webseries for leading streamer Netflix. Titled Betaal, the series was announced a couple of weeks ago and has created a lot of buzz in media.

Though the makers are keeping every detail related to the series under the wraps, some insiders have revealed that it will be a horror zombie show, a genre which has not been explored much in the Indian entertainment space before.

Talking about the cast of the webseries, talented actor Vineet Kumar Singh has been signed on to front the cast. Singh also plays a pivotal part in Red Chillies Entertainment’s hugely anticipated series Bard of Blood, also featuring Emraan Hashmi and Kirti Kulhari in lead roles.

Aside from Vineet Kumar Singh, Betaal also stars Aahana Kumra, Jitendra Joshi, Siddharth Menon, Manjiri Pupala, Syna Anand and Suchitra Pillai. It will be directed by filmmaker Patrick Graham – who earlier called the shots for the Netflix Original horror series Ghoul – along with Nikhil Mahajan.

The show’s synopsis released by Netflix reads: “A remote village becomes the theatre of a breathless battle when a two-century-old Betaal, a British Indian Army officer, and his battalion of zombie redcoats are unleashed. With Indian police pitted against the undead army, hapless villagers are trapped in a horrific, edge-of-your-seat conflict.”

The project has already started rolling. More details are awaited.
