MUMBAI: It's just Fun-tastic news for the audience, especially children.

Bhasin Studios and FFI have inked a deal for worldwide sales representation for SLICK RICK and a sales and co-production deal for ALLEY OF DREAMS, slated for completion in 2017.

Bhasin, who is also the Director of Bhasin Studios, states that he sees “Fantastic Films International as a valuable partner to help grow our company and our brand worldwide. We have taken a long time to wrap up our first feature but with a strong open source pipeline and home grown tools, we are set to start coming out with subsequent titles in shorter turnarounds”.
