Shah Rukh Khan interrogates the ‘Bard of Blood’

The promotions for Emraan Hashmi’s Bard of Blood are in full swing. On the same day as the trailer release, Netflix has also shared a comical video on YouTube.

The teaser for the video had already been making rounds:

It even got a follow-up clip before the actual video:

The video, titled ‘Shah Rukh Khan meets the Bard of Blood’, sees Shah Rukh Khan face off against the renowned Bard of Blood aka Kabir Anand himself (played by Hashmi) in an interrogation room.

Khan tries his hilarious best to make his captor talk, who gives a silent response to most of his questions.

Suddenly, the tables are turned as the Bard of Blood escapes his handcuffs and puts them onto Khan.

The video, played mostly for hilarity, also gives us some significant insight into Hashmi’s character, revealing him to be a master hacker.

The narrative of the series revolves around the aforementioned Kabir Anand, an expelled RAW agent who now leads his life as a Shakespearean professor.

He is recalled from his present job to tackle a threat after his ex-boss is killed.

Here’s the video:

Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, Bard of Blood also features Sobhita Dhulipala, Vineet Kumar Singh and Ivan Rodrigues

Based on a 2015 novel by debutant author Bilal Siddiqi with the same name, it is produced by SRK’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment.

SRK has other upcoming projects with Netflix. Class of 83, starring Bobby Deol as the lead, is in the shooting phase.

There’s also the horror series Betaal, one of five new Indian shows announced by Netflix earlier this year.

The list includes ‘Mai’, ‘Bombay Begums’, ‘Messy’ and ‘Masaba Masaba’.

Apart from these, the Bollywood actor revealed he is working on another show with the streaming platform.
