The CEO of Applause Entertainment discusses the company’s history, the future of projects like the Gandhi biopic and “Scam 2003,” as well as how streaming services have affected the industry.
True media business veterans Sameer Nair and Applause Entertainment, which Sameer founded five years ago as a small studio, today collaborate with the top actors and content producers in the nation.
After producing some of the most popular streaming shows, including Criminal Justice, Scam 1992, and Rudra: The Edge of Darkness, Sameer, CEO of Applause, is ready to start a new chapter as the company expands into producing additional feature films, documentaries, and shows.
Sameer, the creator of the game show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), is looking forward to an exciting few years after working at industry giants like Star India, NDTV Imagine, and Balaji Telefilm. He intends to direct Scam 2003, a biopic of Mahatma Gandhi, an adaptation of the Amar Chitra Katha comics, and a series about the murder of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi during this time (the sequel to Scam 1992).
