Dated: November 27, 2015
Category classifieds portal Quikr, has announced its foray into the entertainment industry by signing an MOU with renowned film industry veterans. As per the MOU, a combined entity will be formed to build a ‘unique’ platform for Actors, Casting Professionals, Directors, Producers, and other professionals in the film industry.
Quikr has also partnered with Film Maker Vivek Bohra and Casting Director, Aadore Mukherjee to help build the new platform. It will bring together actors, casting directors and production houses to help meet the unique needs of India’s burgeoning entertainment industry, said Quikr.
"The whole Quikr journey started seven years ago when I was busy making a film in the US. While making the film, I used Craigslist to recruit more than 50 cast and crew members in the US, but for the scenes to be shot in India, I realised India had no such platform. We are excited to partner with them to infuse the passion of film crazy India with our experience in building digital marketplaces", said Pranay Chulet, founder & CEO, Quikr.
Aadore Mukherjee further added, "We see huge acceptance for this idea not just in Bollywood but also regional cinema, television, theatre, advertising and even international film production. With Quikr technology at the core of this idea, we are definitely on our way towards something big."
