MUMBAI — Veteran actor Anupam Kher has been roped in to be a part of the upcoming American sci-fi drama series “Sense8,” which will premiere on digital streaming service Netflix June 5.

The web TV series has been created, written and executive produced by “The Matrix” trilogy creators Andy and Lana Wachowski and “Babylon 5” helmer J. Michael Straczynski.

Kher, 60, who shared the trailer of the series on Twitter, said he is proud to be associated with it.

“Presenting the sensational trailer of Wachowski’s ‘Sense8’ for Netflix. Happy to be part of this terrific project,” he tweeted.

“Sense8” also stars Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton and Aml Ameen in lead roles.

Kher becomes the third Bollywood actor in the recent past to star on an American series after close friend Anil Kapoor, who acted in “24” and will be seen voicing for popular comedy show “Family Guy.” Actress Priyanka Chopra stars in ABC’s “Quantico.”
