Actor-producer Ajay Devgn and Brillstein Entertainment Partners today announced a partnership to form Los Angeles-based Shivalaya Entertainment,to make independent films targeting a global audience.

“I am coming forth to support the independent film process where we can share important stories that need to be told – global stories that will resonate with international audiences. Our collaboration with Brillstein is an important step in that direction,to ensure we have the best resources from the west to engage a wider audience,” Ajay said here.

“At one end,traditional films continue to entertain and make business sense. At the other,there is a resounding presence of some new forms and voices making a mark in this ever expanding medium. I am keen to be a part of that growth,that change,” he added.

Shivalaya has greenlit its first film,’Parched’,described as centering on the bitter-sweet journey of women in the parched rural landscape of India. It was written and is to be directed by Leena Yadav of Amitabh Bachchan and Ben Kingsley-starrer ‘Teen Patti’ fame.
