KOLKATA: Another OTT platform enters the booming ecosystem with actor-producer Shreyas Talpade’s video streaming service Nine Rãsã. The new streamer stands out on the back of its content dedicated to different performing arts and theatre.

Nine Rãsã offers content in multiple variations including plays, skits, storytelling, stand-up across genres. The platform is available in multiple languages, including Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati and English, and plans to regularly introduce other languages to match the preferences of every audience set.

 It already has 100+ hours of pre-created original content, exclusively for Nine Rãsã, which is ready to go live in a phase-wise manner. The team is also already geared up to initiate filming for an additional 120 hours of content.

The name Nine Rãsã is inspired from Nav Ras, which means nine emotions. As human lives revolve around these emotions, Talpade thought to name the platform in sync with those emotions. Moreover, he also wanted to give an Indian touch to the name with a global appeal, according to reports.

The idea stemmed from the will to help theatre artists and technicians when theatres were shut. The content curation started during lockdown itself, the actor said.

“Theatre is one of the oldest and purest forms of entertainment. Amidst our busy lives and newer entertainment options available, theatre has taken a back-seat over the years, and that kept bothering me. In order to bring theatre back with a similar vigour and excitement, this time was the most suitable. Through Nine Rãsã, we got an opportunity to not only enrich the lives of our audience through superior, original content but also collaborate with the entire theatre community at large,” Talpade detailed.

The platform will work under the subscription model at Rs 59 per month and Rs 599 per year. The associated cost is only for its premium plays while the remaining content can be availed free of cost.
