Mumbai: Bollywood’s iconic Famous Studios, an end-to-end film production facility, takes a bold, first step into OTT feature production with “Shaadisthan”, starring Kirti Kulhari, Kay Kay Menon, Nivedita Bhattacharya and Rajan Modi, along with powerhouse musicians Shenpenn Khymsar, Apurv Dogra and Ajay Jayanthi. The film to be released on Disney+Hotstar on 11th June 2021, is co-produced by Anant Roongta and Sanjay Shekhar Shetty and directed by Raj Singh Chaudhary.
Shaadisthaan is an incredible voyage from Mumbai to a village in Rajasthan, featuring four free-spirited musicians and a small-town couple who want to get their daughter married at the earliest – together on an eye-opening road trip in one camper van that changes their perspective towards life.
Commenting on his first feature film production, Anant Roongta, Managing Director, Famous Studios said, “As Famous Studios evolves digitally, we look forward to creating an immersive and impactful cinematic experience with storylines that reshape perceptions. It gives me immense pleasure to announce that our first feature film production ‘Shaadisthan’ is all set to release on Disney+ Hotstar. ”
Co-producer Sanjay Shekhar Shetty also shared his insights about the journey “Anant and I go back a long way and I have found an amazing partner in him. Raj, an incredible director, brought this female oriented story to me and it greatly resonated with me. If you have a story to tell, you must tell it. Once it resonates with you, it’s the absolute right time to tell it and we have stayed true to that. The beauty of this experience was that so many members of this journey have roots in Rajasthan and it was important to all of us to tell this kind of story. I also have to give a special shout-out to our talented musicians who proved to be amazing actors. We have really enjoyed making this film and hope people love watching it.”
In line with the recent developments at Famous Studios with the first-of-its-kind Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision facilities, the foray into film production also promises exclusive story-telling with noteworthy performances, coming together to create outstanding content.
