After Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui ventured into web show with Sacred Games, it's time for Shah Rukh Khan to go digital! As announced last year, the superstar will be collaborating with Netflix and make an original series based on the book The Bard of Blood. The book is penned by the young Indian author, Bilal Siddiqui.  

Talking about the book, the plot revolves around an expelled spy, Kabir Anand who is recalled from his new life as a Shakespeare professor in Panchgani to save his country and the long-lost love. Now, the makers have finally got their Kabir Anand and it's none other Emraan Hashmi.

Netflix India tweeted the announcement stating, "God has given you one face and you make another. Emraan Hashmi is Kabir Anand in The Bard of Blood!

Emraan looks good here.

I am very happy for Emraan Hashmi. He is the MOST UNDER RATED actor in the hindi film industry.
It's abut time he gets this kind platform.

Bhai bhai

Writer of the book has always maintained he can only see Emraan playing the protagonist. This was bound to happen

Wow. I am so happy. Someone finally saw the potential.
