Hostages is recently released Hotstar Special show that has garnered a lot of attention. The actual makers of the show though are Applause Entertainment. They produce the show and then sign a deal with the digital platform to host them.
Applause Entertainment is the content providers to the OTT platforms. Looking at the growth in the market, and how everything is shaping up, the people behind the production house has set up huge goals. Sameer Nair, who is the CEO of Applause Entertainment, says that they are planning to make as many as 12 to 15 shows in the current year itself.
Hostages, by the way, is not the only show that they have produced, the other Hotstar specials like City Of Dreams and Criminal Justice were also by the same production house. Soon they are going to come up with Mind The Malhotras for Amazon Prime Video.
Not only those mentioned-above, Applause Entertainment is currently in talks with Netflix and other digital platforms as well for leasing the content. The immediate next concern, however, is to see the reception for Meet The Malhotra’s.
