Mumbai, Nov 1 (IANS) Actor Emraan Hashmi, who recently made his web debut with the Netflix show “Bard Of Blood”, is all praise for the exciting and upcoming medium.
“Trying a new platform together was extremely exciting for me. As an actor, it is rewarding to walk the road less travelled. It has its challenges, but the creative satisfaction is huge.
