Shahrukh Khan and Netlfix co-production Bard Of Blood is a series based on the novel of Indian writer Bilal Siddiqui. The series stars Emraan Haashmi, Vineet Kumar Singh and Sobhita Dhulipala. The series is an action packed spy thriller revolving around Pakistan and India.
The series follows a couple of RAW agents who come to Balochistan, Pakistan undercover. Kabir Anand played Emraan Hashmi is a literature professor who was once an active agent. He is contacted for a rogue mission across the border along with and analyst and sleeper agent.Some agents are being kept captive by Pakistanis, who have been posed as terrorist.
The get up including men wearing turbans and deep black eyeliner, is a stereotypical image imprinted in minds of international film makers as a far cry cry from the reality. We wouldn’t be surprise if the series include even more such misrepresentations.
The trailer repeats the years old hatred and propaganda against Pakistan by depicting Pakistanis in bad light. The trailer has been met with criticism and disappointment from fans in Pakistan. This is just another addition to the long list of anti-Pakistan content.
Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta,Bard of Blood is a seven-episode series and will stream from September 27, 2019. Watch the trailer here:
