MUMBAI: BigFlix customers have a reason to rejoice and why? Well, the movie-on-demand service by Reliance Entertainment Digital, in order to strengthen its Bollywood offering has formed a licensing agreement with Vishesh Films. The agreement will allow users to stream as well as download several movies produced under the banner over the years.

With this alliance, BigFlix continues to tie up with leading entertainment companies, thereby acquiring internet rights of some of the best titles of the industry.

The catalogue that is now live on BigFlix, offers some highly acclaimed movies from the past produced by Vishesh Films like Sadak, Ghulam, Sir etc. The recent releases of the production house that included movies like Jannat, Kalyug,Murder and Jism series are also being offered.

Commenting on the addition in the catalogue, Reliance Entertainment Digital CEO Manish Agarwal said in a release, “Vishesh Films has been amongst the most popular banners in Bollywood for 25 years now. Home to veterans like Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt, the banner has given Bollywood a variety of films - from intense and hard-hitting subjects, to romantic musicals and commercial films based on para-science. Having these films is a definite value addition for BigFlix subscribers.”

The move will benefit over one million registered users and over 100,000 subscribers of BigFlix. The movies can be streamed or downloaded and watched offline using the newly launched 'download' feature, at no additional cost.

‘Vishesh Films has been a banner that represents a very diverse, powerful and identifiable library of films and we are glad to have bought it to the finger tips of our audiences with the emergence of platforms like BigFlix,” said Vishesh Films producer and director Vishesh Bhatt.
