Acclaimed filmmaker Suresh Triveni, has partnered with Abundantia Entertainment, led-by Vikram Malhotra, to co-produce and direct his next two feature films. He will also develop an original series for the company, under the role of Creative Director.
Triveni debut feature film, Tumhari Sulu, made waves at the box-office and became one of the most talked about films of 2017. It also went on to receive immense recognition at various award shows. A noted film maker in the advertising world too, Triveni continues to work on prestigious and award-winning campaigns for leading brands and agencies.
With this new development, Triveni takes the next step to create a portfolio of multiple projects and expands his role from direction to creative production.
Set to go on floors in 2020 and 2021, the writing for all 3 projects is on in full swing. While one film will be an emotional-thriller, the second will be an evocative and quirky comedy-drama.
Abundantia Entertainment, producer of content like Airlift, Toilet-Ek Prem Katha, Missing, much-awaited films like the Shakuntala Devi biopic and the thriller Durgavati as well as the new season of its hit original series Breathe, is all set to enhance its content portfolio with the addition of Triveni’s creations.
Malhotra, the Founder & CEO of Abundantia Entertainment, said: “I am delighted that a creator of Suresh’s calibre has chosen to make Abundantia his creative think-space and home for his next ventures. I am confident that with his versatility and brilliant storytelling, we will create engaging and impactful content. With this collaboration, we hope to take Abundantia’s high quality, novel and engaging story-telling to the next level.”
Triveni added: “After Tumhari Sulu, it took me a while to pull myself out of the universe of Sulu which I had been living in for a couple of years. While I was going through this hibernation, I met Vikram Malhotra. We jammed on various subjects and I realised stories that excited me, resonated with Vikram too. I am very excited that Abundantia has decided to partner with my creative vision for these two films and the series, and I look forward to this journey together.”
