Indywood Billionaires Club set to revolutionize the Indian film industry

Indian film industry is really huge with over one thousand five hundred to two thousand projects being churned out relentlessly year on year. Sadly for all of its virile production, its impact is low, almost fecund so to speak when it comes to its reckoning in the international scene. This problem of the Indian film industry is so old that it now has cobwebs attached to it. So we are still stuck looking at the international film modalities for the next inspiration and innovation.

Shouldn’t it be the other way round? UAE based entrepreneur, Sohan Roy, the founder-director of Indywood, a 10 billion US dollar Project, certainly thinks so and he unspooled his plans to make the Indian film industry more impactful in an glittering ceremony while announcing The Billionaires Club (TBC), during the inauguration of the 3rd Indywood film Carnival at Ramoji film city in the presence of actor Jayaprada, noted music director turned actor, K Vishwanath, Ramoji Rao, owner of Ramoji Film City and other dignitaries, including billionaires from the Middle-East.

The said club intends to bind together “about 500 top-end billionaires to form a consortium.” said Roy, further reasoning that, “There will be 100,000 Indian Billionaires by 2020 and we will be identifying and inviting the very best among them to join us in our cause of accelerating our industry.” 2020 is also going to be a water-shade moment in the Indian film industry if Roy will have his way. Because by then according to him, “India will be the only country in the world to have 1000, 8K screens”. The consortium would also be expected to undertake generation of contents ranging from films to education, sports & allied field and also exporting these contents, dubbed in the integrated dubbing centre, world-wide in 100 languages. During the inaugural ceremony the first 50 members of the billionaire club were present.

The club will work in the upliftment of regional cinema in terms of generating opportunities in bringing home the revenue. “In UK the Malayalam cinema gets released in 119 screens every week. We just need to utilize the distribution network to shore up the revenue stream of regional cinema as well”, reasoned Roy.

Why stop at front-end when you can build an entire full-service back-end that is a film city entire, is a question to have crossed Roy’s mind. For he has set his marks on building a film city – the very first one in Kerala, in Thodupuzha, the largest town and municipality in its Idukki district.

Incidentally he also wants to get into the Guinness book of world record by constructing an integration wall under the Golden Bricks Campaign.

But when money comes to money what drives Roy’s inexhausting enthusiasm via the TBC is to bear witness to the day when one Indian Rupee will be equal to One dollar making the rupee great again.
