Actor Prithviraj who formed the production-distribution house August Cinemas with director-cinematographer Santhosh Sivan, Shaji Nadesan, and actorArya has ended the partnership now.
Prithviraj took to his Facebook page and wrote, “The end is always a beginning. It’s been six years and more. Back in 2011, out of a dream to create a film that would truly attempt to make a statement on the excellence in Malayalam cinema, Santosh Sivan, Shaji Nadesan and I joined hands to form August Cinema Pvt Ltd.
Through the last six years, we have continuously striven to facilitate deserving and aesthetic cinema, and I genuinely am thankful for the efforts of my partners in doing the same.”
“Today, I believe that it’s time for me to start traveling on a different tangent, and on that journey, I might not always be able to be part of a partnership. So with great memories, heartfelt gratitude and some films that I will be proud of forever, I bid adieu to August Cinemas. I will always remain a well-wisher of the company, and I have faith that the brand will continue to be associated with the kind of films I set out to make with this dream. Wishing Shaji Nadesan, Santosh Sivan, and Arya the very best in the journey ahead.”
