Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, who is currently in India, spoke at the on-going HT Leadership Summit, revealing some interesting data. Hasting said that:

Sacred Games, Our first original production in India, is a global success. However what took everyone by surprise was the figure of 27 million people viewing, Very Little BEING outside India.

“There are over 160 million subscribers for Netflix across the world. The current phase in India since its launch is only early days. You will see a lot of new stuff hitting the screen, and big investments are being made.”

Perennially besotted with movies, I can’t imagine a day going by without watching one. Passion led to film reviews. The evolution has brought me on the digital platform. Alternatively, I love listening to music from the golden era of Hindi cinema, and Maestro Ilaiyaraja.
