When corporate studios and film funds started getting actively involved in filmmaking a few years ago, there was hope that they would introduce much-needed transparency and professionalism into the industry.
Although they did, every pond has some rotten fish. Take, for example, this film fund that had managed to attract investors on the basis of lofty promises and rosy projections but whose track record spoke otherwise. So much so, that it is believed that some of the investors in the fund have decided to form an action committee to examine the fund’s performance and activities. No wonder, some of the fund’s managers are already fishing for alternative employment.
Well, as they say, jaisi karni, waisi bharni!
