After opting out of Saare Jahaan Se Achcha, Shah Rukh Khan is all set to make his digital debut, if a report in a leading daily is anything to go by. Sources told the daily that SRK will be doing a web series based on a thriller and it will be produced under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment. The plot of the series is so interesting that SRK has decided to star in it as well as produce it.
“The series that Shah Rukh has decided to do is a thriller. Like Bard Of Blood, it will be produced by his banner. The subject has excited him so much that he has decided to not only produce it but also act in it,” a source was quoted as saying by the daily.

Bard of Blood is based on Bilal Siddiqui’s novel of the same name while the report states that SRK has “apparently confirmed a web series with the same international streaming platform.” No official confirmation, however, has been made on this report so far.
