MUMBAI: Production company K Sera Sera is training its guns on the bigs boys of the production business Balaji Telefilms and UTV.

The aim is to be among the top three production houses in India in the movies and television business by the year 2004-2005, K Sera Sera's New York-based president Ash Pamani says.

Speaking to indiantelevision.com after the annual meeting of the board of directors today, where the company's results were declared, Pamani said, "We have had a terrific year. Owing to the fabulous synergy that we have with our creative partners Varma Corp, we are hoping for a great year ahead. While this year we recorded Rs 240 million turnover for the financial year 2003-2004, we are aiming at Rs 750 million for next fiscal. As of 31 March 2004, there has been no pending investor grievance or debt."

"With more professionalism setting into the Indian entertainment industry, we firmly believe that this industry would only become more structured and grow in the years to come. Our current financial performance reaffirms the same," Pamani said.

If last year the stress was on films, this year it is television software. Although plans aren't finalised yet, establishing a television production house in on the cards, says Pamani. The company has entering into creative partnership for making TV serials with Girish Mallik promoted Clapstem Productions for the production of two serials, which will roll out on Sahara in June '04. For the year 2004-2005, the production company has plans for four serials thus far, one daily and three weeklies. While Clapstem is producing one weekly and a daily for Sahara, the next one is assigned to Ravi Rai productions. Starring Aman Varma, the weekly is currently being pitched to Sony.

Event management is another area the company is examining getting into. It isn't quite keen on taking it up this year though, says Pamani. The company has, however, already entered in joint ventures with leading stars of its forthcoming movies Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Ajay Devgan. The stars will get a select percentage of profit margins.

That apart, 75 per cent of the distribution set up, which the company is working on in association with the PVR theatre chain, is already established. "We will complete the remaining 25 per cent in this year. As for overseas distribution, we have already started New York operations. We will be looking at the London and the Hong Kong market too," offered Pamani. "In addition to the distribution platform, we are also looking at extensive marketing of the movies," he added.

K Sera Sera, in a tie-up with Varma Corporation released three movies in the financial year 2003-2004. Darna Mana Hai, a multi-starrer suspense thriller, was the debut production, which was released in July 2003. According to Pamani, the company grossed profitable business in all the territories in India. The second production from the company a thriller Ek Hasina Thi, starring Urmila Matondkar and Saif Ali Khan was released in January 2004. Its latest release, Ab Tak Chappan, was out on 27 February 2004.

K Sera Sera will be releasing seven-eight more films from its stable in the next financial year 2004-2005. The company has chalked out detailed plans and is plans to produce 10 films in a period of two and half years, in association with Sahara India Pariwar and Varma Corp in a Rs 350 million joint venture. 

Production company K Sera Sera has announced an impressive annual performance. After the annual meeting of the board of directors, held on 4 May 2004, the company announced that for the period 1 April 2003 to 31 April 2004, the turnover of the K Sera Sera production Ltd stood at Rs 240 million.
