No sooner did the series got released on Netflix, B-town fans took to twitter, started drawing comparison between the two, saying that the series is an elaborate version of the movie, which stars Imran khan, Shruti Hassan, who made her Bollywood debut with the movie, and Sanjay Dutt in the lead roles.

Much to our surprise, the Squid game series also stars Indian actor Anupam Tripathi, as one of the lead characters. The actor based out of South Korea, revealed that said he was familiar with the language, as he had spent 10 years in Korea as a student and a theatre actor, a news website reported.

With the film becoming a viral hit, even the former CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, tweeted about the Squid game, “that he can’t wait to watch it.”

His tweet reads, @ReedHastings and Ted Sarandos and the team at @Netflix get it right so often. Their internationalization strategy isn’t easy, and they’re making it work. Impressive and inspiring. (And I can’t wait to watch the show.)
