Thanks for raising this concern. Hope @NetflixIndia/@netflix display their respect for creators by crediting them at the end of the trailers. The present format doesn't make any sense. https://t.co/3SOPNTbJDb — वरुण (@varungrover) May 20, 2019
Starring Huma Qureshi, Siddharth, Rahul Khanna, Sanjay Suri, Akarsh Khurana and Arif Zakaria, the six-part dystopian drama is based on author Prayaag Akbar’s 2017 award-winning book of the same name.
Leila is co-directed by Deepa Mehta, Shanker Raman (Peepli Live and Mukkabaaz) and Pawan Kumar (writer and director of the 2013 Kannada romantic psychological thriller film, Lucia).
Leila is slated to release on 14 June on Netflix.
