We saw a need in the market for such a platform. Out of 200 Kannada films released every year, only 10 % stay on screens long enough for the audience to watch. With NammaFlix we are opening a new world where Kannada films can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime. This also opens up opportunities for producers to use this platform to reach out to a larger audience.”
