Netflix announces 40 new titles which will be out on the streaming giant in 2021

New seasons of ‘Delhi Crime’ and ‘Jamtara’, a documentary on Anand Sheela, and the web series ‘Aranyak’ and ‘Decoupled’

Giving a pleasant surprise to all OTT fans, Netflix announces as many as 40 new titles which will be out on the streaming giant in 2021.

 

The upcoming line-up on Netflix features more variety and diversity than seen before. From the biggest films and series, to gripping documentaries and reality, and bold comedy formats, Netflix is all set to take a big leap in India this year.

 

Stars make a digital debut

Bollywood divas Madhuri Dixit and Raveena Tandon will be making their digital debut with Netflix web series. Madhuri will be seen in series Finding Anamika. It’s a suspenseful family drama about a global superstar, wife, and mom who suddenly vanishes without a trace. As the police and loved ones search for answers to her disappearance, her perfectly crafted facade is stripped away.

In Ram Madhvani’s Dhamaka, written along with Puneet Sharma, Kartik Aaryan plays a “frustrated ex-news anchor” who is “given another chance to go live on prime-time television when a terrorist calls him with a bomb threat”.

 

Meenakshi Sundareshwar, directed by Vivek Soni and written by him and Aarsh Vora, stars Abhimanyu Dassani and Sanya Malhotra as a couple who agree to an arranged marriage “because their first names together make Madurai’s famous temple” Meenakshi Sundareshwar. “However, when a job opportunity exclusively for single men pops up in Bengaluru, Sundareshwar has to leave his hometown and his wife Meenakshi, and pretend to be unmarried,” a press release stated.
