Today, entertainment has become easily accessible all thanks to a wide range of shows and movies streaming on OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, etc. Now, you can watch anything you like at your convenience anywhere, anytime. Netflix is one such platform that has started offering a wide range of content for Indian audiences in recent times.
