On the occasion of her birthday, the Queen of Indian Television, Ekta Kapoor announced her most ambitious project. It will be on her digital space Alt Balaji.
A show named MOM, which means Mission Over Mars, has been locked by Ekta Kapoor. It is based on real-life events related to the Mars Orbiter Mission by Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). Four leading ladies, Sakshi Tanwar, Mona Singh, Nidhi Singh and Palomi Ghosh from TV and digital medium will head the cast.
What is an extraordinary thing here is that the web series will be made at an unbelievable budget of approximately 35 Cr. It is so, because, so far no one has made such an expensive project in Indian digital space. It could be a game changer, if done right, for sure.
Ekta Kapoor has always been a step ahead of others when it comes to planning and execution. She was among the firsts to understand the scope of the OTT platform in India and took to the stream with Alt Balaji much before everyone else. The web series on Subhas Chandra Bose was a major streaming success. We hope MOM too achieves the same feat.
