Arun Koushik, Director:
Memes are an integral part of our lives these days. It is impactful, witty, and a modern tool of satire. Meme Boys focuses on this style of entertainment and what follows with it. With the backdrop being an educational institute, I am certain the younger audience will resonate with it strongly. I am delighted to bring this story in collaboration with SonyLIV, Rajiv Rajaram and Drishya Gautam. I am looking forward to a brilliant response.
