Mumbai: Indian films are attracting the global audience immensely. Half of the films featured in Netflix’s global non-english top 10 are from India this week.

Netflix India's Director-Films and Licensing Pratiksha Rao said, “Films have always been integral to the rich storytelling culture in India and the diversity and variety of films being made today, from all corners of the country, is incredible. Our members in India love watching films - evident from how on Netflix, films make up a larger percentage of viewing in India than they do globally. Streaming has the unique ability to combine the best of entertainment and technology, enabling great stories to travel and making global entertainment a reality. We're thrilled to see Indian films on Netflix find audiences across the country and the world.”

In addition, Netflix partners with the Indian film industry to bring an incredible variety of theatrical films to its members, including "Sooryavanshi", "Badhaai Do", "Shyam Singha Roy", "Beast", and "Kurup".
