Actor Emraan Hashmi, who was last seen playing a rakish character in Baadshaho, will soon follow in Saif Ali Khan’s footsteps by making a Netflix debut next.
The official Twitter page of Netflix India announced today, “God has given you one face and you make another. Emraan Hashmi is Kabir Anand in The Bard of Blood!” Netflix also released a 30-second teaser, in which Hashmi is seen picking up a copy of Bilal Siddiqi’s novel ‘Bard Of Blood’, reading it and saying, “God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.”
Set against the backdrop of the Indian subcontinent, the series will revolve around the adventures of expelled spy Kabir Anand, who has to take a break from his second career as a Shakespeare professor in Panchgani to save his country and long-lost love.
Hashmi is currently shooting for Cheat India in Lucknow.
