Amazon has ordered an upcoming series with the working title THE FORGOTTEN ARMY, set during World War II and based on true events. The project revolves around historical Indian figure Subhash Chandra Bose and his Indian National Army, which has forged out of Britain’s defeat in Singapore during World War II while India was still under British colonial rule.

The series will start production by the end of this year and will be directed by Bollywood director Kabian Khan.

Amazon Prime Video launched 18 Indian originals, which are currently in various stages of production.

Roy Price, Amazon Prime Video Head of Global Content said:

“Our aim is to build a compelling lineup of Indian shows, working with the greatest talents from the industry. (Khan) is one of the many such partnerships that India will see.”

Khan said:

“I am excited to make this truly international series, which has a scale and reach far greater than any Hindi film.”

Meanwhile, Netflix has announced that one Indian original Sacred Games, is currently in production.
