As Amazon Prime Video continues its push to secure local titles to win India’s on-demand streaming market, its global rival may have hit the jackpot: Dangal.
The Aamir Khan-starrer film is now streaming on Netflix in India, less than a month since the movie’s premiere on television.
The arrival of Dangal on Netflix marks the beginning of a major deal that Aamir Khan Productions and the California-based on-demand streaming service have been exploring for months. More on this later.
Dangal was expected to arrive on Netflix last month, but the movie’s unforeseen grand success in China pushed the airing schedule on the streaming service, according to two sources familiar with the matter who requested anonymity as they are not authorised to share information with media.
