Sidharth Roy Kapur has bagged a place among Variety’s 500
most influential business leaders. Sidharth’s Roy Kapur Films (RKF) has opened its doors to writers, directors and
producers with ideas for high impact content across multiple genres to be
launched under the Jio Originals brand, and available to over 140 million
subscribers. This is a higher reach than any other digital platform in the
country, and gives content creators the rare opportunity to reach out to the
entire length and breadth of the country with their stories.
A team at RKF has already started to identify high quality content that can cater to the widely diverse and growing digital audience in India. “Unique stories and great storytelling have always been at the core of all forms and formats of entertainment, and that’s exactly what we will look for in the digital medium too. At RKF, we are working to develop and produce digital content that is high-impact, binge-watchable, unique and makes you want to come back for more. We have some very interesting ideas already in development and would welcome anyone with a great story to come share with us,” shares Roy Kapur.
"Our search for the right kind of content is not limited by any filters on
genre or regional tastes or preferences. We are just looking for great stories
that are unique, entertaining, engaging and make you sit up all night to watch
“just one more episode!” adds Sidharth. This is a big opportunity for budding
writers and storytellers.
