Karthik Subbaraj’s production house, Stone Bench, has announced that they will be venturing into producing and releasing ‘indie films’, offering a much-required platform for quality content that would otherwise fail to find its distributors and audience.
Directors Vetri Maaran and Pa Ranjith recently revealed the title of the first such film to be released by Karthik Subbaraj, under his purpose-built arm Stone Bench Indie. The film, Alli, is the Tamil-dubbed version of the Sanal Kumar Sasidharan directorial, Chola in Malayalam, featuring Joju George and Nimisha Sajayan in the lead.
“These are movies that have already made their presence felt in various national and international film festivals. We want to bring these movies to theatres here to reach a wider audience. This, we hope, would give a huge boost to independent filmmakers and also give the public a chance at large to watch these amazing movies on the big screen,” a statement from Stone Bench read.
Meanwhile, Stone Bench has three feature films — Bhoomika featuring Aishwarya Rajesh, Penguin featuring Keerthy Suresh, and a film starring Vaibhav in the lead — and two web series, in various stages of production.
