Disney+ Hotstar has announced a list of 27 titles that will be released on its platform in August 2021. There are two big originals from India — the first is Bhuj: The Pride of India, a war drama about the 1971 Indo-Pak War led by Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, and Nora Fatehi. Bhuj: The Pride of India is out August 13, the week of Independence Day, on Disney+ Hotstar. The other one is The Empire, a period drama that will chronicle the rise and fall of the Mughal Empire, from Babur to Aurangzeb. Kunal Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, and Dino Morea lead the cast of The Empire, which comes from director Nikkhil Advani. The Empire is out August 27 on Disney+ Hotstar.

There's more Indian-oriented content from Disney+ too in the Disney Channel movie Spin. Featuring Abhay Deol, Spin follows an Indian-American teen who discovers a passion for DJ mixes and blends that with her heritage. Spin is out August 15 on Disney+ Hotstar. Beyond that, Disney+ will also offer the animated anthology series Marvel's What If...?, premiering August 11. Marvel will also offer revision lessons on the characters involved there on August 4 in Marvel Studios Legends. Elsewhere, the Emma Stone-led Cruella drops August 27 on Disney+ Hotstar, as we'd reported. And on August 25, we will get a special The Mandalorian making-of episode for Luke Skywalker's cameo.
