So, Netflix India decided to hear ‘em all and fulfilled the wish with a tweet on 4th January.

The tweet said “Please provide #Aadhaar details for more information” and featured a 19-second clip from one of its episodes from Season 4, titled Hang the DJ.

In this version of the clip, a hand-held device asks the character what he wants to know. The character asks, “Me and Amy, I need to know how long.” The device displays the message, “Link Aadhaar Card to Find Out.”

Clever, very Clever!

As soon as the tweet was posted, a number of responses applauding the move and thanking Netflix India began pouring in.
