The nine Marathi films include Kaasav; Ventilator, directed by Rajesh Mapuskar and produced by Priyanka Chopra; Kshitij: A Horizon by Manouj Kadaamh; Kachcha Limbu by Prasad Oak; Maza Bhirbhira by Yogesh Soman and Vivek Wagh among others.
Riteish Deshmukh's upcoming production venture Faster Fene stars Amey Wagh as the boy detective who delves deep into a murder case but uncovers a huge scam in the process. Directed by Aditya Sarpotdar and written by Khshitij Patwardhan, the film releases on October 27.
Deshmukh sums up the impact this new norm is likely to have, “Having a prime time slot does not mean competing with the fare that Bollywood or Hollywood is churning out. This, however, would offer more choices.”
