And today, we have the opportunity to experience stories from around the world across various formats. The short films, in particular, from being rather niche in their appeal, today have a reach that is equivalent to many other successful films and shows. We are happy to have partnered with Pocket Films to syndicate their content around the world and showcase such myriad kinds Indian origin based content to viewers the world over."
