Netflix came to India around two years back and considered India as a ‘super priority’ market but has launched very few original content for the Indian market as compared to its main competitor, Amazon Prime videos. Along with that none of the shows were able to get the Indians to give their precious time. Now Netflix is getting all buckled up with a range of new shows for the Indian market which will be unique and content driven. In coming months series like Selection day based on the novel by Arvind Adiga, Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra & Again by Marisha Mukerjee will be released.
