With the success of Indian web-series and original films on Netflix such as Sacred Games and Lust Stories among others, the streaming platform is becoming a major player for content consumption. Karan Johar took to Twitter on Wednesday, September 11 to announce that his production house's digital content wing, Dharmatic will be collaborating with Netflix India for original feature films as well as web-shows. The big announcement comes in a video where Karan is seen talking about stories and how the audience connects with them. Kaun Banega Crorepati 11: Karan Johar Knew the Answer of Rs 1 Crore Question and It had a Takht Connection.
Sharing the video, Karan wrote, ".@NetflixIndia is about to get @Dharmatic_! So excited about our exclusive collaboration with NETFLIX! We are creatively aligned to produce original feature films & series (fiction & nonfiction)...it’s going to be P.H.A.T!"
What's special though is that Karan makes quite a bit of references to Kareena Kapoor Khan's character 'Poo' from his famed directorial Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and we can't help but wonder if we are getting a special something, a spin-off with Kareena Kapoor Khan in her legendary character. The actor not only mentions her character in the video but also wrote "PHAT" in his tweet.
