However, looks like SRK was talking about his role as a producer of Netflix’s upcoming series Bard of Blood. The series starring Emraan Hashmi in the lead will premiere on its platform on September 27. The seven-episode show is based on Bilal Siddiqi’s bestselling book of the same name.
The official logline of the show reads, “The story is about four Indian intelligence officers belonging to the Indian Intelligence Wing (IIW) who are compromised before they can relay an important piece of information to India. They get captured and are about to be decapitated. The stakes are high.”
Bard of Blood is the story of an expelled spy, Kabir Anand who is recalled from his new life as a Shakespeare professor in Panchgani to save his country and long-lost love.
While talking about his experience of working on the series at India Today Mind Rocks 2019, Emraan Hashmi said, “It’s pretty tough. It’s like shooting three films simultaneously. It was a lot of work but I really enjoyed it.”
