This venture is the natural step in our progression to create entertaining and content for a global audience and to grow the business through innovation in content, marketing and distribution,” said Uday Shankar, CEO, Star India.

Karan Johar said, “Movies for me have always been a blend of artistic and commercial resources. This partnership will not only be the coming together of two forces who understand the need of the cinematic hour but also work as a unit to increase the footfall strength at the movies and empower other verticals. It’s a new age of cinema and this association is a glorious reflection of the times”.

The venture will provide a much-needed impetus to the Hindi film industry that is witnessing a rapid metamorphosis with audiences becoming more judicious given the varied entertainment preferences accessible to them.
