Relativity Media sets base in India, partners Keyur Patel

MUMBAI: Ryan Kavanaugh‘s California-based Relativity Media, an independent motion picture production and investment company, is soon to set foot in India.

It has partnered with Fuse+Media‘s Keyur Patel and formed a new company Relativity Media India (RMI).

Headquartered in Mumbai, production, distribution and finance company RMI will handle Indian distribution of films solely done by Relativity Media and also acquire English-language films from other Hollywood studios and producers for distribution across all platforms.

RMI is seeking to create original content for all platforms, including film, television and video games, as well as license, adapt and remake properties and formats for the local market. It will also develop, produce and distribute local-language content by partnering with Indian talent.

In this regard, RMI is giving finishing touches to the acquisition of distribution rights of more than 30 recent and current English-language films.

As chairman and CEO of the company, Patel will oversee a staff of eleven executives.

Patel has been an investor in TV networks and films in India as well as a producer on several film and media projects in Hollywood and Bollywood.

In 2008, the company began an agreement with Lions Gate Entertainment, Sony Pictures, and Universal Studios to co-finance these studios‘ films until 2015, although Lionsgate has a significant role in the financing of most films.

The company‘s first production credit was with the short film Jerry vs. Death in 2005 and their first major feature film credit with RV in 2006.
