The author, director and producer of Betal’s story is Patrick Graham, who previously created Netflix. She has joined Nikhil Mahajan (Baji) as director and Suhani Kanwar (Lipstick Under My Burqa) as writer. In his statement, Graham said he wanted to create a separate horror series after Ghosts, which is full of action. The concept of the old soul cursed mountain has been inspired by Indian mythology and has spent a lot of time looking at the story of the zombie in popular fiction. The series itself creates a ghost story with action and suspense.
Betal is a series produced in India under the banner of Bloomhouse Productions and Red Chillies. Blumhouse is known for low budget horror films such as Get Out, Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Incidious, Halloween, The Invisible Man. Earlier we saw “Gul” starring Radhika Apte under these two banners.
