Vikramaditya Motwane’s Andolan Films and Applause Entertainment, India's leading content studio have announced a creative collaboration on two new projects. The first is a three-part docu-series titled Indi(r)a’s Emergency, which aims to take audiences into a dark chapter of our history- The Emergency. The series will be narrated by lyricist, singer and actor Swanand Kirkire, and use a ‘combination of archival footage and animation, bringing to life events that shook a nation.’
Black Warrant – Confessions of a Tihar Jailer is the second series that Applause and Motwane will work on together. This series is based on a book written by Sunil Gupta and Sunetra Choudhury. Told through the eyes of a young jailer, this gritty series will offer a ‘glimpse into the mystery and enigma surrounding Tihar, India's largest and most infamous prison and the inmates incarcerated there.’
Motwane shared his thoughts on the development and said "I am thrilled to partner with Applause Entertainment for these two ambitious projects. Both Black Warrant and Indi(r)a’s Emergency delve into significant chapters of Indian history, presenting unique narratives. Collaborating with a team that shares the same passion for storytelling and pushing creative boundaries is an incredible opportunity."
