In one of the Indian film industry’s biggest collaborations, T-Series and Reliance Entertainment have joined hands to produce more than ten films together across varied genres that include big budget tent poles as well as mid and small budget content rich films.
This giant collaboration that brings two major production houses together with an investment of approximately Rs 1,000 cr will bring forth films ranging through different genres, production scales, talent and music.
Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Reliance Entertainment have earlier worked together on the music marketing front for more than 100 films. Now for the first time, both studios will collaborate to produce a slew of multiple films and a great start of a larger long-term relationship for content creation between the two organisations.
The extensive line-up of films is in various stages of development. Bejewelled with three big budget blockbusters, the slate also features high content films headlined by some of the country’s most revered on screen and off screen talents.
More specifically, the slate includes Hindi remakes of Tamil blockbuster drama and action thrillers, a mega historic biopic, espionage thriller, courtroom drama, satire comedy, romance drama and a film based on shocking true events, amongst others.
The new slate of film will be produced over the course of next 24 to 36 months, under the aegis of some of these partnerships and with other promising film makers like Pushkar and Gayatri, Vikramjit Singh, Mangesh Hadawale, Srijit Mukherji and Sankalp Reddy.
Given the pace of the developments, confirmed alignments with some of India’s biggest stars, four to five films will have a comfortable big screen release worldwide, starting next year-2022.
Bhushan Kumar, Chairman and Managing Director, T-Series, says, “After working on music marketing together, this collaboration has happened at the right time and this will just strengthen our ties. Shibasish and I hope to give our Hindi film audiences new and unconventional films.”
Shibasish Sarkar, Group CEO, Reliance Entertainment, says, “I really look forward to our partnership with T-Series. This partnership with Bhushan will surely mark the beginning of a great feat in the Indian film industry as we move on to offer a bouquet of path-breaking and momentous films to our audience.”
