Netflix's India Original Series 'Selection Day' will release worldwide on December 28. Based on Aravind Adiga's novel of the same name, the series is about two brothers who are raised by their strict, obsessive father to be star-cricket players in India. The cast includes Ratna Pathak Shah, Mahesh Manjrekar, Rajesh Tailang and debutants Yash Dholye and Mohammad Samad as brothers Radha and Manju Kumar.
Anil Kapoor is co-producing the project with Anand Tucker. Simran Sethi, Director, International Originals, Netflix, said the team is looking forward to the series. "We're excited to share this joyous and emotional coming of age story with India and the world. 'Selection Day' is an amazing opportunity to expand our array of programming after the exciting debuts of 'Sacred Games' and 'Ghoul'," Sethi said.
Expressing his excitement, Kapoor said, "With 'Selection Day', Netflix is once again bringing Indian talent onto the world stage. India is a land rich with stories and we can now share these globally. I can't think of a better way of bringing people together."
'Selection Day' will be the Netflix's third India Original Series. Earlier, Netflix announced 'Sacred Games' has been renewed for a second run. A prequel to SS Rajamouli's 'Baabhubali' is also in works. 'Bard of Blood', based on 2015 bestseller of the same name by Bilal Siddiq, is also in development, starring Emraan Hashmi and will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment.
