The Indian Film industry is celebrating 100 years of Cinema and it produces double the size of films every year as compared to Hollywood. At such interesting times, I am glad that a content and quality rich production house like RiverRocks Films has decided to set foot in India. We believe that the Indian Cinema industry has never been so open and content oriented and the time is ripe for us to form long-term associations here. After all, the industry is expected to reach revenues of $4.5 billion by 2016, and we at RiverRock Films intend to be part of the revolution.”
