Indian OTT viewers are in for a treat of sorts, because Applause Entertainment, the digital content production arm of the Aditya Birla Group of Companies, has bought the remake rights to ‘Fauda’, the hit Israeli Netflix spy and action thriller.
Fauda is a gripping Arabic-Hebrew spy drama that was first released on Israeli TV, and was later bought by Netflix, where its dubbed version has streamed for two seasons, to overwhelming and universal critical acclaim. The series is fast-paced, riveting and well-performed.
If done right, the Indian adaptation has the potential to be a mega hit, starved as we are for gripping action thrillers. The Israeli original depicts conflict between the Israeli defence forces and Palestinian terrorists (what else!). The Indian version will most likely adapt the narrative as an Indian-spies-vs-Pakistan-terrorists account (what else, again!).
The series is currently in the scripting stage, with shooting to begin soon after the writing and casting process is complete. There is no information on the OTT platform where the series will stream, but rest assured that we’ll bring you that bit of info as soon as we are in the know about it.
