Bard of Blood anticipants without a Netflix account can rest their FOMO for the Emran Hashmi series because the streaming giant has made the first episode of its India original series available to non-members in the country. "At Netflix, we try different ways to bring people closer to great stories. We believe many people will find the thrilling story of spy Kabir Anand very appealing and are excited to make the first episode of the series available to everyone for a limited time. In the future, we will consider if we will do this for other films and series," the company announced in a statement.
Based on Bilal Siddiqui's book The Bard Of Blood, the Emran Hashmi spy thriller is the latest in the series category to join the latest series-hype. The multi-lingual series will tell the story of an expelled spy, Kabir Anand who is recalled from his new life as a professor to save Indian spies captured by the Taliban. "Mission briefing from Agent Kabir Anand: Preview the first episode of #BardOfBlood without sign up here," Emraan also posted on Twitter.
The first episode is currently accessible on the Netflix homepage and the page listing Bard of Blood episodes on the OTT platform.
