Balaji Telefilms

Ekta
Kapoor

Partner / Managing Director

Responsible for the creative direction of its TV shows and movies, Kapoor has helped Balaji Telefilms become one of the largest content producers in South Asia. The pandemic caused a major hiatus for the company: Movies such as “Pagglait” and “Dolly Kitty” debuted on Netflix rather than opening in cinemas. But Balaji Telefilms is now back on track with five movies in the pipeline for 2022. Kapoor’s making her shows available as broadly as possible, reaching viewers beyond India’s big cities. Helping achieve this is the ALTBalaji platform, one of the leading native players in the Hindi SVOD space, offering subscriptions from INR100 ($1.35) for two months. It just announced a slate of 30 titles for the coming year, adding to the 83 shows currently streaming on the platform.
