Raj and DK sign Netflix multi-year deal – News Kidda

Indian film duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, better known as Raj & DK, have entered into a multi-year agreement to direct and produce films and series for Netflix.

Known for their quirky genre mashups and distinctive style, Raj & DK have achieved commercial success and critical acclaim in various forms in India, with indie films, big budget films and, more recently, series.

In 2021, they launched their own production banner D2R Indie to produce indie film projects from emerging directors. The company’s first release, which Raj & DK produced, was the well-received comedy-drama in Telugu Cinema Bandicaided by the first filmmaker Praveen Kandregula and released on Netflix last year.

Raj & DK also already have their next series in the works as directors and showrunners at Netflix – the upcoming comedy-crime thriller series, Weapons & Gulaabs. Netflix describes the project as “a story of love and innocence set in a world of crime, a nostalgic tale of all kinds of firsts, from first love to first murder.”

“Raj & DK are one of the most original creative voices in the country,” said Monika Shergill, Netflix’s head of content in India. “In addition to their unique and ingenious storytelling style, they are also a powerhouse. We are excited to continue our relationship with them for a multi-year creative partnership that will bring superlative entertainment to Netflix members around the world.”

Raj & DK added in a statement, “We look forward to creating great, unique stories and challenging ourselves to bring storytelling into exciting and fresh spaces.”
