Director duo Raj & DK, popular for their Amazon series ‘The Family Man’ (2019) and Rajkummar Rao starrer ‘Stree’ (2018) are ready to stimulate creativity in new and aspiring filmmakers. The duo will be helping filmmakers create stories while under quarantine under their banner D2R Indie.
Speaking to PTI, Raj said, “We’ve started this initiative especially to encourage a new format of micro-storytelling. It’s called D2R Indie, which will mentor, produce, present innovative works of new and aspiring filmmakers – mostly in micro-storytelling, and sometimes even longer formats. The idea is to encourage filmmakers to use this opportunity to make the most of what they have under the current circumstances. It is actually for anyone who wants to beat the blues, and find innovative ways of creating something from home or under restrictive circumstances. The micro-series is in pre-production stage while the indie film is being shot currently. The one micro-series is a wacky take on relationships, another one is a homebound adventure and the indie film is a comedy about filmmaking.”
Shreya Dhanwanthary of ‘The Family Man’ will be making her directorial debut with the first series under the banner called ‘A Viral Wedding: Made In Lockdown’.
