Earlier this month, SRK was rumoured to star in feature film adaptation of Money Heist, the hit Spanish show streaming on Netflix. The actor subsequently denied the rumours.
Bard of Blood premieres on September 27 on Netflix. Speaking about the show, lead actor Emraan Hashmi had told us, “It’s an exciting one. I have been a fan of web shows for the past six years. The format is like great literature. You get to really sink your teeth into characters and the story. It’s like shooting three films together."
