He said that the initiative to offer movie watching experience at affordable rate was his dream since the time he forayed into the industry.
Filmmaker-turned-actor Venkat Prabhu is geared up for the release of Kasada Tabara, which is dropping on SonyLIV, on August 27. He is producing the film under his home banner Black Ticket Company, along with Ravindran of Trident Arts. On Monday, he surprised one and all with the announcement of launching Black Ticket Cinemas, a movie streaming platform where movie buffs can watch their favourite films on a pay per view basis.
Venkat took to his Twitter account to share the news and termed it the next big step in his career. He said that the initiative to offer movie watching experience in affordable rate was his dream since the time he forayed into the film industry.

The director also added that Kasada Tabara, directed by Chimbudeven, will be available in the platform for audience outside India and that our viewers will be able to access the digital avenue's content soon. The platform, according to him, is offering 50 per cent off on tickets for those who pre-book the content available in it.
Meanwhile, he also revealed that the fourth single from Kasada Tabara, titled Irai Thandha, will be out soon. Composed by Ghibran, the song has lyrics penned by Venkat's father and filmmaker Gangai Amaren, who returned to acting recently. The film's first three singles which were recently released have been composed by Sean Roldan, Sam CS and Premgi respectively. The team is expected to release two more songs from the movie, which are set to tunes by Yuvan Shankar Raja and Santhosh Narayanan.
Kasada Tabara, which features a stellar cast, along with multiple cinematographers, composers and editors, is Venkat's third production venture after his own directorial project Chennai 600028 II: Second Innings and RK Nagar. He has Silambarasan-starrer political thriller, Maanaadu, and multi-starrer comic caper, Party, too, awaiting release. The former is expected to hit screens later this year.
