A leading film and media production house, ODDBALL Motion Pictures is founded by Nitin Upadhyaya. Recently, the team announced their association with Chanda Group, who will be funding a capital of up to 250 Crores for feature films and original digital video content.
Speaking on the association, Chanda group’s managing director, Rahul Chanda said:
“Indian Film & Media sector is one of the fastest growing market and in a country which has an exceptional appetite for information and content, it is about time that this sector is explored as a serious business avenue. This association with ODDBall Motion Pictures will help us to power forward in the industry. They are passionate and developing some great content.”
Nitin Upadhyaya stated:
“All a dream needs is a Dreamer. What Chanda group has offered is an unparalleled opportunity to produce and deliver high-quality films and world-class entertainment content at an uncompromising scale. Over the past few years, a lot of new avenues have cropped up that have taken precedence as the profit center in the media business than just the classic feature films, an encouraging example being the humongous growth of OTT platforms and content in India. While films will remain our key focus area, we now also plan to expand into the digital domain and venturing into South Indian film industry. We are very thankful for them putting so much trust in a relatively younger organization like ours and we will forever strive to make them proud.”
This year, ODDBALL Motion Pictures would be producing 7 films, including the much-awaited Emraan Hashmi starrer Captain Nawab.
They also have three Hindi and two Marathi films which will be released next year. Chanda Group will be exclusively investing 250 crores in ODDBALL Motion Pictures for five years, for their developments in the Media and Entertainment Industry.
Their first release will be a bilingual thriller, Haadsaa, starring Gulshan Devaiah, Sagarika Ghatge, and Kunal Roy Kapur.
