Netlfix has revealed that its first Indian original series, Sacred Games, was watched by twice as many people outside the country. The streaming giant’s vice president of product, Todd Yellin, shared the figures at Netlfix’s See What’s Next event in Singapore.

“Traditionally, you made something in Bollywood, and the only place is in India. Some people would see it but very few because the distribution wasn’t there. Now, two out of three of our viewers who watched Sacred Games were outside of India, and it did really work in India. But that’s what we want. We want to spread that kinda storytelling for people who love it,” he said at the event.

Netflix released Sacred Games earlier this year and plans to announce nine more programs on Friday. Sacred Games was directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane and starred Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles. The show was a major hit among the viewers. Sacred Games is currently in production with its second season.

India has emerged as Netflix’s biggest market in Asia, according to some estimates, as has become the case for U.S. media companies such as 21st Century Fox Inc. and Viacom Inc. Highlighting the country’s importance, Netflix’s Singapore event was dubbed See What’s Next Asia but more than half of the shows announced hail from India.

Indian market is growing rapidly’: Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan is one actor who speaks openly about most issues. We recently met him for an event and the actor spoke about how the Indian market will soon be growing by many thousand crores. He also expressed his reservations regarding actors personally promoting their own films.

“The promotional strategies formed require us to go ahead on different platforms and say, ‘My film is good. Please come and watch.’ Why would people trust us? Audiences are not stupid to agree with us, while we are blowing our own trumpets. Interactions with media persons are different.”

The actor adds, “Having said that, I do agree that certain platforms are good enough to raise awareness though. In the earlier days, by just looking at the trailer people would decide whether they wanted to watch the film or not. People can’t rely on the actors. So sometimes, I do feel it’s just a waste of time.”

Talking about the recent distribution of Indian films in China, the actor feels good cinema is one thing that is liked by every country and its people. “No one would like to watch regressive cinema. We all need to feel happy, as the Indian market has become huge. There are new territories opening up, and people worldwide have started liking our films. Those days are not far when our films will fetch multi-crores from these newly opened territories too. It’s time for us to better our distribution worldwide,” he says.
