D2R Films, Netflix’s production banner, has partnered with Indian filmmakers Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK to develop and produce new projects for the streaming service.
Producers on a 2021 Telugu film currently streaming on Netflix, Cinema Band I, and directors and showrunners on the upcoming comedy crime thriller Guns & Gulaabs, both of which fall outside the deal, have already worked with the streamer.
Guns & Gulaabs is described by Netflix as “a story of love and innocence in a world of crime, a nostalgic tale of all kinds of firsts”
Most of Raj & DK’s Hindi content is genre-bending, including the indie drama Shor In The City (2010), the stoner comedy Go Goa Gone (2013), and the blockbuster horror comedy Stree (2018), which they co-scripted with Amar Kaushik.
Also for Amazon Prime Video India, they wrote and directed two seasons of the popular Hindi web series The Family Man, starring Manoj Bajpayee as a spy whose family thinks he is just a boring pen pusher. “Raj & DK are some of our country’s most unique creative voices,” said Netflix India’s Vice President of Content, Monika Shergill.
Additionally, they are a powerhouse studio with an ingenious storytelling style. We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with them for a multi-year creative partnership that will bring world-class entertainment to Netflix members everywhere.
According to Raj & DK, Netflix is a pioneer in the streaming space due to its unstinting and passionate support of filmmakers in the industry. This year, we’re looking forward to creating big, unique stories and challenging ourselves to think outside the box in terms of storytelling.
