Yoodlee Films forays into the world of web series with Suniel Shetty starrer Invisible Woman. It marks the debut of both the production house and the action star in the OTT web -series space
India’s youngest boutique film production house Yoodlee Films has already carved a substantial niche for itself across the OTT space with feature films, that have been feted and acclaimed with both global and national awards. Since the studio’s inception, it has 17 feature films across, across languages and genres, that have found a coveted place in multiple leading OTT platforms.
Now, making a confident stride ahead from there, Yoodlee Films is now foraying into the ever-expanding world of web series. They have just announced their first show, and it’s by all accounts, an intriguing one to look forward to. The series is titled Invisible Woman, and will be headlined by the indomitable Suneil Shetty, who also makes his OTT debut with this project. The noir action thriller series will be helmed by acclaimed Tamil director Rajesh M. Selva and 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 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 web series – 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.”
“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,” says Suniel Shetty.
Invisible Woman is currently going on floors and will be the first of many series that Yoodlee Films will announce in the coming months – a strategic move to be active in the web series space, as it continues churning out feature films alongside.
