Netflix seems to be the go-to place for our Bollywood Celebrities these days. After Saif Ali Khan, another major star is debuting on the platform but as a producer. We are talking about Anil Kapoor, who will be producing Netflix’s latest original series, Selection Day. Based on Ind0-Australian writer Aravind Adiga’s novel of the same name, which came out in 2016, the show will premiere on December 28. It stars Mahesh Manjrekar and Ratna Pathak Shah in pivotal roles. Have a look at the official announcement right here:-
Kapoor, talking about the show, said, “With Selection Day, Netflix is once again bringing Indian talent onto the world stage. India is a land rich with stories and we can now share these across the globe. I can’t think of a better way of bringing people together.” The show is about a fourteen-year-old Manju, who is destined for cricket greatness. There’s only one problem, he hates cricket. Controlled from a young age by his overbearing and cricket-obsessed father, Manju’s main role in life is to support his older brother and fellow cricket star, Radha. When the family moves to Mumbai and the brothers start at a new school, Manju discovers his interests outside of cricket and starts slipping away from Radha and his father’s grasp.
Let’s hope the show turns out to be as successful as the novel!
