With Voot Originals we are looking at telling stories about topics that are relevant to the digital viewer and we’re delving into subjects that are as yet unexplored. There are over 20 million people who have moved away from TV content. Our strategy is to aggressively pursue these native digital viewers through multiple original series. We are looking at launching many more series this year each with a differentiated pitch. And kick starting this plan with our latest offering – Yo Kay Hua Bro is set in heartland India. It is a comic caper with a unique twist! Men beware… we are about to spark the imagination of many women!”
