Hombale Films, the production house which gave Kannada blockbusters KGF and Kantara, has now decided to invest Rs 3,000 crore in the Indian film industry in the upcoming five years.
Vijay Kiragandur, the founder of Hombale Films, confirmed that the company is planning to produce movies in all south languages so that they can reach out to a wider audience through culturally rooted stories. “We intend to invest Rs 3,000 crore for the next five years in the entertainment industry in India. We believe the entertainment industry will grow more and more, he said.
In an interview with PTI, Vijay said, “It will be a mixed bag of stories. Every year there will be five-six films including one event movie. As of now we have plans of making movies in all south languages. We want to make something that is liked by the global audience, but we want it to be rooted in our culture and tradition. We want to leave something behind for the younger generation. We also want to contribute towards the Indian economy.”
For the expansion of viewership, the production banner has decided to join hands with writers and filmmakers from the Hindi film industry and have also roped in two leading writers from Bollywood.
Meanwhile, the Bangalore-based company’s next film is a pan-India Prabhas-starrer ‘Salaar’. Directed by Prashanth Neel, the action adventure film is set to be released on September 28, 2023.
