The global popularity of Squid Game has sparked a frenzy in the entertainment business, with numerous directors planning films based on Netflix’s Korean drama. Its success with Indian moviegoers has prompted the makers of the 2013 thriller Table No. 21, which was similarly based on a real-life game for a large sum of money, to prepare a sequel starring Rajeev Khandelwal and Paresh Rawal.
According to rumours, Viki Rajani, the film’s producer, is working on a sequel and will make an announcement shortly. According to the source, the director has already begun work on the film, which is expected to have a magnanimous star cast this time.
Many eagle-eyed netizens began comparing the South Korean drama to Table No 21, citing ‘conceptual similarities’ between the two projects as soon as it became popular. Many people also saw the Bollywood film, which was based on Article 21 of the Indian Constitution, which deals with personal liberty and life protection. The film, which starred Rajeev Khandelwal, Paresh Rawal, and Tina Desai, shed emphasis on the social issue of ragging.
Meanwhile, Squid Game has surpassed Bridgerton as Netflix’s most-watched series, with 111 million views in just 17 days since its debut. The series is based on a gaming competition in which 456 people compete for a reward worth $45.6 billion. The cash-strapped contestants compete in six life-or-death children’s games, with failure to succeed resulting in their deaths. Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, Jung Ho-yeon, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi, and Kim Joo-ryoung star in the series, which is directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk.
