SRK once said - I want Indian content to do well globally, and wants them to achieve the international standard.

The synopsis of Betaal reads, "The official synopsis of the series reads, “A remote village becomes the theatre of a breathless battle when a two-century-old Betaal, a British Indian Army officer, and his battalion of zombie redcoats are unleashed. With Indian police pitted against the undead army, hapless villagers are trapped in a horrific, edge-of-your-seat conflict.”
Directed by Patrick Graham and co-directed by Nikhil Mahajan, Betaal stars Lipstick Under My Burkha fame Aahana Kumar and Mukkabaaz actor Vineet Kumar.
The project is a collaboration of SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment, Netflix, SK Global, and Blumhouse Productions, famously known for its Hollywood horror movies such as Paranormal Activity and Insidious.
