With feature films that have been feted and awarded with both global and national prizes, India’s newest boutique film production firm, Yoodlee Films, has already built a significant place for itself across the OTT arena. Since its founding, the studio has produced 17 feature films in a variety of languages and genres that have found a home on numerous top OTT platforms. Yoodlee Films is currently foraying into the ever-expanding realm of online series, taking a confident step forward from there. They’ve just announced their debut show, and it sounds like it’ll be something to look forward to. The series will be titled Invisible Woman, and it will star Suniel Shetty, who will also be making his OTT debut with this project. The famed Tamil director Rajesh M. Selva will direct the noir action thriller series, which will also star Esha Gupta.
Vikram Mehra, MD Saregama India says, “We have been very effective in addressing the demand of the new emerging digital audiences for wholesome entertainment content through our slate of feature films that have found a place of favour in the many OTT platforms. Films like the gutsy revenge drama Ajji, to the pathos filled National- award winning human drama Hamid, the heartland love-stories of Chaman Bahaar and Kanpuriye, to the urban social commentaries like Comedy Couple and Axone – Yoodlee Films has revelled in creating engaging narratives that don’t toe the conventional line. Now we take the leap into the world of webseries – a space that we have been itching to get into, given how consumption patterns of consumers have seen a tectonic shift to binge-watching these web-series from all over. We were waiting for the right project to come our way and Invisible Woman, headlined by the indefatigable Suniel Shetty , in an edgy action thriller, is just the right one to augur this transition.”
Says Suniel Shetty, “A web series today must have something to set it apart from the barrage of narratives that already exist, and the story of Invisible Woman immediately captured my attention. I am very happy to collaborate with Yoodlee to bring ‘Invisible Woman’ to life and to make my debut in a web series as unique as this.”
Invisible Woman is presently in production, and it will be the first of several online series announced by Yoodlee Films in the coming months – a strategic move to be active in the web series field while continuing to produce feature films.
