Dec 18: Eros International Media Ltd, a global film company in the Indian film entertainment industry, on Monday announced a four-film co-production deal, with leading production house, Drishyam Films.
In 2018, Eros and Drishyam will jointly produce four films to pave way for presenting a new wave of cinema that the companies have come to stand for.
“The first of the four projects, titled ‘Kaamyaab’ starring Sanjay Mishra along with Deepak Dobriyal and directed by National-Award winning filmmaker Hardik Mehta has already gone on floor and commenced shooting on November 25,” the company said.
Speaking on the alliance, Jyoti Deshpande, Group CEO, Eros International, said, “we feel the kind of cinema Drishyam makes and the agenda we have fo the next fiveyears at Eros perfectly match. At Eros, we believe that our future slate should have a mix of blockbusters like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Bajirao Mastani as well as beautiful stories made on smaller budgets like Aligarh, Nil Battey Sannata and Newton.”
According to Manish Mundra, founder of Drishyam Films, “we are very excited to associate with a leading studio like Eros who are backing our kind of content-driven cinema, and happy that our stories have found a home here. It’s heartening that they have come forward to not only distribute our films but also create a vision to tell stories together. We at Drishyam have built a brand of cinema that we are very proud of and we hope the association with Eros will take our films to a much wider audience.”
