Amid the popularity, Netflix India decided to treat the eyes of the show's Indian fanbase with Wednesday Addams's desi avatar.

The Netflix original ‘Wednesday’ is currently the most-watched series on the OTT platform and is gaining more popularity on a daily basis. The supernatural show has reached a whopping one billion watch hours so far, making it among the most-streamed shows on Netflix. Amid the talks and praises, Netflix India decided to treat the eyes of the show’s Indian fanbase with Wednesday Addams’s desi avatar.

Netflix India took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a painting of Wednesday Addams, the main character played by Jenna Ortega. However, in the painting, Jenna can be seen in a desi attire of Wednesday Addams with a bindi and a rose in her hair. While her outfit remains gothic, the painter ditched the usual top and skirt with a black lehenga.

Notably, the artwork was created by Arjun Kutty, a 25-year-old illustrator. “Meet Rajkumari Budhwaar. This #Wednesday artwork by @kuttyypie has made our entire day,” reads the caption of the post.
