Fox Star Studios to tie-up with Bolly-wood and Kollywood

Fox Star Studios has been financing and distributing Indian language films or dubbing Hollywood films and releasing them in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. In 2014 it hopes to roll out at least 30 titles which include nine Hindi films, most of them being co-productions.

Fox Star and Vishesh had previously tied up for Raaz 3 and Murder 3, both titillating horror cum suspense thrillers. “We have focused on strengthening relationships and also been able to strike some new relationships,” said Vijay Singh, CEO-Fox Star Studios. The studio’s links with Tamil film makers has been beneficial to encourage them to continue it further in 2014. It’s drawn up plans to jointly produce movies V Chitram, Mundasupatti, and Cuckoo.  Fox Star finds Tamil films are a lot more original and there is more willingness to experiment and push the envelope, he said. Vijay TV, Fox Star’s Tamil channel, aides them by continuous advice on trends and commerce. Fox Star is aiming at building a Story Bank that will comprise of script writers and help generate a whole new set of ideas for film making. The aim is also to exploit the Intellectual Property Rights of wholly-owned films. The primary focus is to grab scripts, ideas and those producers who are known to work within tight budgets. Fox Star has found that in the south, stories work more than big names. If this bank is not built then audience would have to remain content with remakes of commercial successes in other languages.
