Mainstream Sandalwood actors are planning to create a new web series under the banner of their production house, Paramvah Studios.
Kannada film industry AKA Chandan is late to the party when it comes to making content specific to the OTT space. Of course a lot of Kannada films have come out earlier this year due to the Kovid-19 lockdown, but no initiative has been taken by the Sandalwood filmmakers (at least visually, so far) to deal with it and see the upcoming location . “. So far Joe.
Actor, director and producer Rakshit Shetty wants to be one of the first people in Sandalwood to properly tack on this space by creating this new web-series. There has been no official announcement yet (but it is expected in a few days), as they will likely need a major OTT company to distribute the series nationwide. Rakshit has seen the space as a platform for young, emerging talent in all fields, acting, directing, script-writing etc.
He has signed fellow writers from “The Seven Odds”, Sumant Bhat to direct the series as well as upcoming directors. To Ekam ‘is going to be set up in the Karavalli belt of Karnataka. A casting call has been launched which specifies that the story will be based on the coastal region and will explore different locations, people, topography, dialects and food in different regions
The story is meant to target the entire Indian audience, which will appeal to a lot of OTT streaming platforms. Although the series is rooted on the coast, Rakshit is hoping that he can attract more Indian audiences, reflecting the various differences in the bright new idea of a screenplay. He is trying to push ‘Ekam’ beyond language barriers and we applaud him for it.
