AKFC Network and Netflix have long been creative collaborators, and Thar is the first film the two have cooperated on. Producer and actor Anil Kapoor said about his forthcoming film in a statement: “I am incredibly pleased of what we have done with Thar and am extremely enthusiastic about the picture for various reasons.” It’s a first for Indian film and audiences: a noir thriller set in Rajasthan that pays homage to the Western genre.
This is a place where the freshness of emerging talent meets the wisdom of seasoned veterans, both on and off the screen. Harshvardhan Kapoor and Fatima Sana Sheikh star in the film, while director Raj Singh Chaudhary and his team of risk-takers Shreya Dev Dube and Ajay Jayanthi are making magic behind the scenes.
At every step along the journey, I’ve tried to push the boundaries of what’s possible by creating new, cutting-edge material. Having Netflix as a partner and collaborator has been a dream come true for me, since this passion manifests itself in the form of Thar. In our opinion, at AKFC Network, the film will be loved and embraced by viewers in India and throughout the world for all of its beauty, grit, and thrills.”
When it comes to movies, Netflix India’s Director of Films and Licensing Pratiksha Rao says: “At Netflix we are passionate film aficionados like our subscribers. If you want your audience to see the best and most diversified films imaginable, you have to take creative risks, and Thar is an excellent illustration of this. It was a pleasure to work with Raj and AKFC on this project.
Following in the footsteps of Haseen Dillruba, Raat Akeli Hai, Aranyak, Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein, and many more, Netflix presents another thriller with Thar. An excellent thriller, Thar has tension, mystery and drama to keep you on your toes. The film was shot in some of the most beautiful locales in the nation, making it a visual delight.
