The movie and entertainment industry might have been hampered severely amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. But, it does not seem to perish anytime soon. After all, entertainment is what the audience needs in such dire times. The money invested in films and the profits generated from them have always been lucrative. Even after cinema halls being non-operational for almost a year, the producers have opted to release the films directly over the digital space. Looking at this opportunity, Mumbai-based businessman Rishabh Sachdev is keen to don a producer’s hat.
While offbeat films have a loyal audience, commercial cinema has attracted a maximum audience in the last few years. It was recently revealed that Rishabh Sachdev will be producing a Bollywood film with Sooraj Pancholi and Gautam Gulati that will go on floors soon. Making his debut with a high-octane action film, the businessman believes that Bollywood in the last few years has improved its game in the action genre. The 31-year old did not reveal much about the project but stated that he wants the film to be raw and original rather than being unrealistic.
Furthermore, speaking about turning a producer, he said, “The business of filmmaking is a continuous process. It is here to stay. In this current situation, the only setback is that the audience won’t get to experience a cinematic spectacle like before. But one cannot even deny that OTT space is the future.” Rishabh’s passion for making films goes way back to his early days. He has earlier produced an advertisement campaign for ‘Vaamoz’ and is now all set to venture into film production.
Besides this action film, Rishabh Sachdev has got a series of projects in his kitty. With the going trends, the businessman even hinted at venturing into the OTT space. When asked about the other projects, the producer said, “It is too early to talk about everything at one go. But I am in talks with many production houses, and if all goes well, we might explore digital space and announce a web series. I have always admired web shows, and their consumption among the audience has turned out to be a gamechanger. Let’s hope for the best.”
On the other hand, Rishabh Sachdev has earned a great fortune in the business world. He owns Jyoti Group under which is Jyoti Construction , Jyoti surgical , Jyoti Hotels & much more. He aims to venture into other aspects of business in the coming time. “The idea is to invest smartly rather than doing savings. Now is the time to invest because when the markets pick up after the pandemic, the ROI will gradually be higher”, he revealed. We wish this versatile businessman turned producer lots of luck for his foray into the world of entertainment.
