What will happen in Bard of Blood?

The series follows in a line of popular Netflix Indian dramas, including Sacred Games, Delhi Crime, Typewriter and Selection Day.

However the new show follows a different path, taking viewers into the world of espionage.

According to the official plot: “An excommunicated RAW agent, Kabir Anand (played by Emraan Hashmi), a courageous analyst, Isha Khanna (Sobhita Dhulipala), and a sleeper agent, Veer Singh (Vineet Kumar), take on a covert mission in Balochistan when four Indian spies are captured.

“The mission soon turns south and Kabir Anand must face his demons from the past to end a war before it begins.”

Emraan Hashmi (who previously starred in Mr X, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai and The Dirty Picture) plays the lead role Kabir Anand.

He is joined by Viineet Kumar, who has starred in blockbusters The Brawler, Gangs of Wasseypur and Ugly.

Sobhita Dhulipala rounds out the main cast and her biggest role to date is in Amazon Prime series Made in Heaven.

The trio are joined by Jaideep Ahlawat, Kirti Kulhari, Sohum Shah, Rajit Kapoor and Danish Hussain as in the series.

Speaking about the new series, actor Emraan Hashmi told India Today he researched the book a great deal before taking the part.

He said: “I read the book five years ago. I had to know every detail of the seven episodes.

“It was a pretty extensive journey. You can’t even skip a beat; you have to know where the character is coming from and the nuances that you have to play.”

Just what this means will be revealed when the series drops on Netflix today.
