Spotify India has announced its new original audio series, ‘Batman Ek Chakravyuh’, a Hindi adaptation of the audio streaming platform’s global audio series, ‘Batman Unburied’.

Bringing David S Goyer’s creation to life in India is Mantra Mugdh, the director of the audio series.

“Batman Ek Chakravyuh has been specially created for our local listeners and establishes new frontiers in audio storytelling for India. It brings an all-time favourite Super Hero to millions of listeners in India. Through our partnership with Warner Bros. and DC, we have the unique opportunity to take Batman deeper into the market. Today, 1 out of 4 Spotify users in India listens to podcasts, and we hope that this spine-chilling soundscape masterpiece, which tells the transcendent story of the one and only Bruce Wayne, brings his fans to Spotify,” said Dhruvank Vaidya, Head of Podcasts - India, Spotify.

“It has been absolutely thrilling to take on the mantle for a superhero such as Batman, that too in audio and with Spotify. You can expect nothing short of an epic, cinematic audio thriller, the likes of which India has never heard before. Voicing Batman was an experience in itself and I am glad we get to show our audience a re-imagined caped crusader,” said actor Amit Sadh.

“I am a fan of David Goyer's Batman films and his tight plot brings out the different shades of Batman’s story so well. To have the opportunity to portray Barbara Gordon in the audio series written by him is truly special. Barbara Gordon is such an inspirational firebrand, a go-getter who knows what she wants and will stop at nothing to get that. It has been a fun experience voicing her in Batman Ek Chakravyuh,” said actor Shweta Tripathi Sharma. 

‘Batman Ek Chakravyuh’ is a psychological thriller that takes listeners on a new journey deep into the mind of Bruce Wayne, introducing a slew of dark twists and turns with a number of classic Batman Super-Villains. When audiences meet Bruce Wayne he is a forensic pathologist, working in Gotham Hospital and tasked with examining the victims of The Harvester, a gruesome serial killer preying on Gotham City’s citizens. Not only will Wayne be forced to face his own mental demons, but he will also have to overcome them to save the citizens as his alter-ego, Batman. 

Listeners can also stream the English version of the podcast featuring Winston Duke as Bruce Wayne surrounded by an A-list cast that includes Hasan Minhaj, Gina Rodriguez, Jason Isaacs, and Lance Reddick.

The audio series premieres globally today with 9 international adaptations, including the original English-language script for the US, and localised versions developed for India, Brazil, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, and Mexico. 

Batman Unburied will be the first project to debut as part of Spotify's global multi-year agreement with Warner Bros., and DC. The partnership will leverage DC’s vast library of iconic characters in new Spotify podcasts to unite fans around the world in an unforgettable audio experience.
