We aim to get a step closer to our regional audiences with consistent Original show launches in our key markets. With the addition of B.Tech to our content library, we are further strengthening our regional growth plans for ZEE5. We have a strong content-lineline up for the coming months which will be a delight for our viewers.

UdayReddy, Founder &CEO, YuppTV Studios [YuppTV] quoted, “During our hunt for talent, we approached TharunBhascker to create content for the digital space. Post wrapping the shoot of Pellichoopulu he came on board to start B.Tech with us. Upendra, Director of B.Tech and the team have done a fabulous job with the series. B-Tech is an attempt by YuppTV Studios to change the way regional entertainment is looked at. This series comes as a clutter breaker in the web space with honest storytelling and high production values. We are very happy to associate with ZEE5 and look forward to create some exciting content together.”

TharunBhasckar, Writer, B.Techcommented,“B.Tech is the first script that I had written with utmost honesty and which came straight from my heart. The stories were inspired by real people around me. I am so glad that the script is finally coming to life as a ZEE5 Telugu Original and is produced by Yupp Studios. With ZEE5 being one of the fastest growing platforms in the OTT space, it will definitely give B.Tech the momentum it deserves.”

He further added, “Itis directed by my childhood friend Upendra Varma who was always rooting for this script from the time I wrote the first draft. I was extremely nervous about how it would turn out but the moment I saw the rushes I realised that he has taken total control of the project. There couldn’t have been a better team to work on this. One exciting aspect about B.Tech is the music,done by renowned musician Raghu Dixit. Vivek – Camera, Pratik – Direction Dept and Tanvi- Production are the main pillars of B.Tech.”

Upendra Verma, Director, B.Techcommented, “We are glad to associate with ZEE5 which has grabbed the attention of Telugu viewers in a very short span of timeand happy that Yupp Studios supported us throughout. This project was special and important to all of us. Tackling a project with over 80 locations, racing sequences, 80 secondary characters was no small challenge, but we managed to pull it off within the resources available without compromising on the story.Vinoothna Geetha’s short films have earlier inspired people to follow their dreams. We hope this project does the same. It’s definitely a story that has inspired us to never give up on our dreams and we want everyone to know through these three biographical stories that they should continue chasing their dreams.”
