This will be the first and only Indian web series to be showcased on the international platform. Vikram who leaves for France this week, “When I spoke of the Web last year as the next big thing people thought I had lost my marbles again, as I am known to do that from time to time. I knew that in this game, the revenue model would come later and the entertainment would come first. When we made Maaya, we were a small motley group that believed in this future. The actors, the techies and me. We wanted to say what we had not been able to ever. We wanted to use our freedom with responsibility. Today, our voice has broken all borders and reached the outside world. We are both humbled and proud.”
