Earlier when Srishti Behl Arya, Director International Originals at Netflix-India spoke about the Netflix. It’s importance of popular cast for the shows. She says it to indianexpress, she thinks when we talk about anything that’s global, we react to Indian icons. Their search is to find storytellers – some might have worked before, some haven’t. As reference to their recent successes Ghost Stories and Jamtara, it was agnostic of who was in it.
Telling more Srishti also speaks about the what does audience choose. She says, “Seventy per cent of the audience in India watches at least one film every week. We have an affinity for films and number is actually much more than other markets. We believed that Upstarts, which was based on startups, would create a lot of curiosity among the young audience. However, the result was less than optimal. On the other hand, Drive, which got heavily criticised has an incredible viewing on the platform.
