Kavithalaya Productions to bankroll four web series
The projects were launched on Tuesday, to mark K Balachander’s 89th birth anniversary
Kavithalaya Productions, the banner of late director K Balachander, will produce four new web series. The production house, which made a comeback with Amazon Prime Video's Harmony with AR Rahman, will be collaborating with directors Priya, RS Prasanna, Vignesh Karthick, and Saran. The projects were launched on Tuesday, to mark K Balachander’s 89th birth anniversary.
“The project with Priya (of Kanda Naal Mudhal fame), is a story about how fate brings together four women from different walks of life. The one co-produced by RS Prasanna, is a sociopolitical thriller based on contemporary events, which will be helmed by Praveen Raghupathy. Saran will direct a series that will capture the events during the release of the 1976 Kamal-starrer Manmadha Leelai,” says Pushpa Kandaswamy, who is currently managing operations for the company.
Kavithalaya will also be collaborating with a popular media channel to make a sequel to Vignesh Karthik’s Yours Shamefully series. “This will be an anthology of sorts with eight episodes, each addressing one issue in society,” adds Pushpa. All four projects are currently in the pre-production stage, and are being pitched to various platforms.
