MUMBAI: #fame, India’s premier talent led digital entertainment network and CAA Kwan, the country’s leading celebrity management firm have announced a pioneering strategic partnership in the digital entertainment space.

Through this alliance, #fame and CAA Kwan will help some of India’s top celebrity talent to engage strongly with their fan base by co-creating and promoting digital video content and communities around them. This will take the form of exclusive digital video channels and shows on the #fame network, which will give fans and audiences unique access and insight into the persona of some of the nation’s most loved celebrities including award-winning actors, music maestros, top models and sport stars.

Speaking on this partnership, Vijay Subramaniam, PARTNER, CAA Kwan said, “Iconic entertainers and celebrities share a common trait, that of having an engaged and active fan community around their brand. In this social age, where digital is revolutionalising everything about entertainment, building a video community is key for our celebrity talent to connect deeply with fans. We’re very excited to partner with #fame and look forward to building a great offering together using our respective strengths.”

Adding further, Puneet Johar, MD, TO THE NEW Ventures, commented, “As smartphones and web access becomes more mainstream, mobile video will increasingly be the currency of consumer Internet.
