Netflix just dropped the trailer for Bard of Blood, an upcoming spy thriller based on the eponymous 2015 novel by Bilal Siddiqui and directed by Sujoy Ghosh (Kahani, Badla). It marks the digital debut of Emraan Hashmi who essays the role of an excommunicated RAW agent, Kabir Anand. He teams up with analyst Isha Khanna (Shobhita Dhulipala) and sleeper agent Veer Singh (Vineet Kumar) to rescue Indian spies captured in Balochistan. The trailer also shows Rajit Kapur as an intelligence officer and Danish Husain as an extremist.
The trailer shows Kabir, code-named Adonis, living his new life as a professor until he is violently thrust into his old one when he is summoned for this rescue mission. The trailer promises chases, hails of bullets and tons of combat scenes.
Bard of Blood premieres on Friday, September 27.
