MUMBAI: Planet Marathi’s OTT platform has been going from strength to strength. After onboarding seasoned entertainment prodigy Amit Bhandari and a considerable investment from Singapore-based Vistas Media Capital, Planet Marathi has roped in Academy Award jurist Ujwal Nirgudkar to serve as an advisor.

Ujwal Nirgudkar is the first Indian to be invited by the Academy to join as a member in the technical category (Members-At-Large) in 2017. He was pivotal in bringing Oscars president John Bailey to India in 2019 and opening the avenues of global recognition for the Indian film industry. Being a dignified industry fellow who has dedicated his life to nurturing the heritage, technology, and art of motion pictures globally, he is an asset to the Planet Marathi team. His role with Planet Marathi would be in an advisory capacity to take Marathi content, talent, and filmmaking art, to global heights. During his career, he has won several accolades his accolades of a number of fellowships and national-International awards for his work in preserving, restoring, and transcribing great works of art.

Nirgudkar said, “I am very happy to join Planet Marathi as an advisor. Marathi language has a rich content in the form of literature, which is still not explored to its full potential. Planet Marathi’s OTT platform has the technology and marketing capabilities to make it possible.”

Planet Marathi CMD Akshay Bardapurkar said, “The way Marathi industry has worked over the years needed a nudge in the right direction. We have immense talent, state of the art filmmaking technology, expertise that can create meaningful and entertaining content, yet we lacked the skill to package our art and pull the audiences to the theatres. Planet Marathi OTT revolutionises the way Marathi films, shows, and digital content is marketed, presented, and consumed. The recent association with Ujwal Nirgudkar is going to give Planet Marathi the right resources, expertise, and fuel to grow. I am glad that not just Marathi or Hindi, but global bigwigs demonstrated their faith in a Marathi platform understanding the value that we bring to the table.”

The recent developments in Planet Marathi OTT’s portfolio have piqued the curiosity of entertainment enthusiasts, industry professionals, filmmakers, investors, and audiences globally. There is an eagerness to experience the Planet Marathi OTT platform and the positive momentum it brings to the Marathi entertainment industry.
