Betaal first-look: Viineet Kumar Singh leads Netflix’s period zombie horror
The upcoming series is produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment
Netflix India has unveiled the first look of Betaal. Produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, the show is a period zombie drama starring Viineet Kumar Singh and Ahana Kumra in the lead roles. Its creator is Patrick Graham, who previously directed the horror mini-series Ghoul for the platform.
Netflix shared the motion poster of Betaal today. It features Viineet in a military uniform as he stands with the other characters. The room is dark and grimy, like the Gulag in Call of Duty: Warzone, as a fire burns to one side.
The official synopsis of Betaal 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.”
Betaal also stars Suchitra Pillai, Jitendra Joshi, Manjiri Pupala, and Syna Anand. The Indian original series is set to premiere on May 24.
