Late last year, Netflix has announced nine original films and a series to be made for its platform. A few of them were to be produced by top Bollywood heroines like Priyanka Chopra (Firebrand), Madhuri Dixit (15 August), and Anushka Sharma. The first two have come out whereas the last one named Bulbul is fast finishing its shoot.
The Anushka Sharma production, Bulbul, is a period drama set in Kolkata. It tackles age-old beliefs and superstitions. A man trying to find out the cause for mysterious deaths and save the village from a witch is said to be the storyline.
Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri who were seen together in Laila Majnu is playing the lead actors in the film which is set in the horror genre. Rahul Bose, Paoli Dam and Parambrata are the other vital cast of the movie.
In the past, all the production ventures of Anushka Sharma had featured her in the lead. However, for Bulbul, it is different as she has gone with outsiders. The wait to cast them too has been a long one and has only been completed recently. Bulbul is expected to debut online in the last quarter of the year.
