Film production and distribution company KRG Studios is teaming with acclaimed filmmaker Anjali Menon on a Tamil-language feature film.

Menon’s London Film School graduation short “Black Nor White” (2002), starring Archie Panjabi (“The Good Wife”) and Rez Kempton (“The Mummy”), won the BFI award at the Palm Springs film festival. Her directing credits include “Manjadikuru” (2008), “Bangalore Days” (2014), “Koode” (2018) and most recently “Wonder Women” (2022).

Hitherto a Kannada-language specialist, KRG is now expanding across the four southern Indian languages that also include Malayalam, Telugu and Tamil. The company established its studio distribution business in 2017 and has distributed more than 100 films in the southern Indian state of Karnataka. They ventured into production in 2020 and found early acclaim with “Rathnan Prapancha,” directed by Rohit Padaki and starring Dhananjay, which released directly on Prime Video India. “Gurudev Hoysala” released in 2023. 

Former Prime Video India content chief Vijay Subramaniam is on board as a mentor and co-producer.

Producer and co-founder of KRG, Karthik Gowda, said: “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.”

Menon added: “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.”  

Menon is represented by Tulsea, a strategic media and content management company that represents writers, directors, actors, technicians and producers in India and internationally.
