Mumbai : Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt says that biopics of "unknown guys to the known" are the only kind of films now made in India.

"Of late, we have become an industry that churns out only biopics. From the unknown guys to the known, everyone's story is up for grabs," Bhatt told IANS.

He is yet to join the bandwagon though.

His psychological thriller "Hadh" has been now brought to the audience by SonyLIV, a digital entertainment platform.

The 10-episode web series features an intriguing narrative that touches upon passion, lies, betrayal, and murder.

"'Hadh' is the story of power and greed and to what limit people can go to achieve it. I believe almost everyone on this planet has a selling price. Some sell cheap and the rest hold back.... 'Hadh' is Shakespearean in its construction. A dying king and three young aspirants for the throne, so to speak. Lies, betrayal, and murder are on the menu," he said.
