Big budget Malayalam TV serial targets multiple language deal

MUMBAI: After tasting success with the folklore thriller Kadamattath Kaththanar on Asianet, the Trivandrum-based C Subrahmaniam Enterprises is now back with Kadilinu Akkare, a big budget adventure thriller.

Having shot a major portion of the serial in South Africa, the production house is now looking to dub it in all the four South Indian languages.

"We have spent about Rs 8 million shooting the serial in South Africa. Cost-wise, it is a huge budget taking Malayalam standards into consideration. Hence, we are planning to launch the serial in all the four South Indian languages. However, the first launch will happen in Malayalam and we have already kicked off negotiations with the channels here," says the production house' promoter S Karthikeyan.

The South Africa portions were shot in the Pietermaritzburg wildlife park with a 45-day shooting schedule. "The storyline required the lead characters interacting wth wild animals and a lot of wild adventure. That is why we headed to South Africa for shooting," explains Karthikeyan.

Kadilinu Akkare will be packaged in about 300 half-an-hour episodes. Karthikeyan hopes that the animal adventure portions will keep even the kids glued to the serial. Karthikeyan's maiden serial Kadamattath Kaththanar had a lot of fan following in kids.
