A few months ago, when Bengaluru-based film distribution and production company KRG Studios announced its association with The Viral Fever, co-founder Karthik Gowda had told OTTplay that the long-term vision included making films in all south languages, even though the initial few collaborations were announced to be in Kannada.

As the first step in this direction, KRG Studios today officially announced its first Tamil film production. To be directed by Anjali Menon, best known for films like Bangalore Days, Manjadikuru, Ustad Hotel, Koode and, more recently, Wonder Women, the as-yet-untitled #KRG07 is being billed as a tale of love and life.

KRG Studios established its studio distribution business in 2017 and has distributed over 100 films in Karnataka till date. The banner ventured into full-fledged production in 2020 with Rohit Padaki’s Rathnan Prapancha, which released directly on Prime Video India during the pandemic. This was followed up with Gurudev Hoysala, also starring Dhananjaya in the lead.

The banner currently has multiple projects in production, including a two-part gangster flick called Uttarakaanda with Dhananjaya, a comedy called Powder with Diganth, and another fun film called Kiriket 11 with Danish Sait and Naveen Shankar. It will also produce Kiccha Sudeep’s return to direction, King Kichcha.4

Speaking of this collaboration, director Anjali Menon said, "I am looking forward to the collaboration with KRG Studios as we share the commitment to create engaging movies built from our cultures with world class production values. Audiences are connecting beyond language boundaries to the diverse story landscapes of India, and we are keen to take them on cinematic journeys that are memorable, entertaining and thought provoking - all at the same time."

Karthik added, “Our collaboration with Anjali Menon signifies a new chapter for KRG, where the essence of storytelling takes precedence. We believe in the magic of cinema, and this partnership exemplifies our dedication to crafting tales that resonate across diverse audiences and languages.”
