Led by Vikram Malhotra, Abundantia Entertainment was a pioneer creator in the streaming world in India with its Amazon Original, ‘Breathe’ in 2018. This was followed by its much-loved second season in 2020, Breathe: Into The Shadows, which also marked the digital debut of movie stars Abhishek Bachchan and Nithya Menen. The latest and third season of Breathe: Into The Shadows was a huge hit amongst the critics and audiences globally upon its launch in 2022. Abundantia’s all-women-led ensemble, ‘Hush Hush’ brought yesteryear super stars Juhi Chawla and Ayesha Jhulka into the streaming world and released to rave reviews on Prime Video. There’s a diverse array of content in development as streaming originals that includes ‘The End’, marking the streaming debut of superstar Akshay Kumar, a multi-season crime drama based on the popular ‘Rita Ferreira’ books and a multi-season series with the award-winning director and showrunner Hansal Mehta.

To further its commitment in supporting and enabling the vision of its creator partners and to incubate high-potential talent, Abundantia Entertainment has launched ‘Opening Image’ in collaboration with long-standing partner, Suresh Triveni, the director of critically and commercially successful films like Tumhari Sulu and Jalsa. An exciting slate of films and series is already under development, including Suresh Triveni’s own directorial ventures as well as content that he is set to show-run.

Our Verticals

One of our founding principles is to listen to our consumers and focus on progressive and innovative storytelling. With the emergence of personalized content consumption trends, the strategy behind the launch of these two new verticals is to focus on specific audience segments and content genres.

‘Psych’ develops and produces content that is focused on horror and paranormal - a genre that is home to some of the fastest-growing audience franchises in the world. Horror is a distinct segment which requires a specific skill set of storytelling and story crafting. By adding a host of writers and directors and collaborating with global experts in this field like Crypt TV we plan on creating innovative and engaging platform-agnostic content in these verticals that will connect with audiences worldwide. Our aim is pure-play, bone-chilling horror.

‘Filters’ creates and produces content that focuses on the young adult demographic. There are multiple films and originals being developed along with ‘The Hood’, including the remake of ‘Missing’ and an adaptation of the popular book ‘Along Came a Spyder’, to name a few.
