Hombale Films, the production company behind the Kannada blockbusters KGF and Kantara, has decided to invest Rs 3,000 in the Indian film industry over the next five years. Vijay Kiragandur, the founder of Hombale Films confirms company plans to produce films in all Southern languages to reach wider audiences through culture-based stories. “We plan to invest Rs 3,000 crore in the Indian entertainment industry over the next five years. We believe the entertainment industry will continue to grow”, said Vijay Kiragandur.
In an interview with PTI, Vijay said: Five to six films are screened each year, including event films. Going forward, we have plans to make films in all Southern languages. We want to create something that appeals to a global audience, but we also want it to be rooted in our culture and traditions. We want to leave something behind for younger generations. We also want to contribute to the Indian economy. ”
To expand its audience, Production Banner chose to partner with writers and filmmakers in the Hindi film industry and also brought in two leading Bollywood writers. Meanwhile, the Bangalore-based company’s next film is the pan-Indian Prabhas-starrer ‘Salaar’. The action-adventure film directed by Prashant Neel is set for release on September 28, 2023.
