Raj and DK are director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. Both have been away from the big screen for a long time and these days have devoted themselves to OTT stories.
‘Victoria No. 203’ to ‘Taxi No. 9211’, Hindi cinema has a rich history of comic thrillers. In the past few years, two stalwarts in the comic thriller genre have burned their hands: Subhash Ghai in 36 Farmhouse and Sameer Nair in Kaun Banegi Shikharvati. The task of regaining the lost reputation of Hindi crime thrillers is now being carried out by two filmmakers, who have given ‘Family Man’ a new desi flavor. Raj and DK are the filmmakers creating ‘Guns and Gulabs’ for this OTT, after making the film ‘Cinemabandi’ for Netflix.
Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the director duo who have taken a break from the big screen for a long time and are now devoted to OTT stories. As well as making the first and second seasons of ‘Family Man’ with Manoj Bajpayee, the duo has also started an OTT series with Shahid Kapoor and Raashi Khanna. Almost all of the work on the series is complete, and the post-production process is in full swing.
As part of their project, Raj and DK recently signed actor Rajkummar Rao. They have also discussed Bhumi Pednekar with them. The trailer for the story of a PT teacher who falls in love with a lesbian girl may also be an attempt to heat up Rajkummar Rao’s Badhaai Do, since it has not been well received. Rajkummar Rao is engrossed in his career pace with two houses ahead and four houses behind.
Netflix has announced a series ‘Guns and Gulabs’ whose directors are Raj and DK, but it will be revealed only after their heads or tails fall. Which series is this? All Mumbai filmmakers like Raj and DK have stopped making OTT series. Raj is making a series and selling it to OTT. Guns and Roses is another such story. This will be his first Netflix series as a director.

Once again, Suman Kumar and Sumit Arora assisted Raj and DK in writing ‘Guns Aur Gulabs’. According to the Netflix annual meeting, the company’s condition in India is very poor. It is because the previous teams of this OTT have spent all the unsold or packaged goods of Hindi cinema on Netflix that its brand value has been diminished in India. In addition, Netflix’s marketing team does not have any idea how the OTT market is spreading in the towns and small cities of the country, nor has it been able to identify any neutral media platforms. In order for Netflix to be a success in India, it needs to change its marketing strategy. Right now, these people are trying to sell Sacred Games to those who watch Sanskar TV.
