Revealed: Madhu Mantena’s New Multi-Million Production Company To Do A 250-Crore Ramayan Webseries

BMaverick  producer Madhu Mantena has been  lying low  for almost a  year now,  after his production house the  highly-regarded  Phantom halted all production activity thanks  to the  rift among  the partners.

But Mantena, known to constantly  reinvent  himself  , is not sitting at home licking his wounds, as some  over-imaginative portals have reported.

In fact  Mantena whose tryst with  super-success crested  with  the Aamir Khan starrrer Ghajini   is on the verge  of  announcing his newly revamped  production  house.

A source  close to the development  says, “Madhu Mantena has been negotiating deals with  several  prominent  filmmakers. The earlier  avatar  of  Mantena’s production house was  besieged  by inhouse fighting.Madhu has weeded out  all the undesirable  elements. He  is  focusing on getting the  best directors to  direct  for  his newly-revamped  production  house,” says  the  source in know.

While two  of Mantena’s  big-budgeted Mantena  production Super  30(a bio-pic  on  the  iconic  mathematician Anand Kumar) and  86(chronicling  the Indian cricket team’s triumph at at  the 1986 World  Cup) are  in various stages  of production/completion,  Mantena   has been negotiating with a top Hollywood name to  do a webseries  based  on  the  Hindu epic Ramayan.  The series  to be  made at an estimated  budget  of  Rs 250 crores  would have some of Bollywood  and Hollywood top names playing the main characters.

Also  on  the anvil is a film based on the  life and  times  of legendary actress Madhubala.

When contacted Madhu  Mantena  said, “I am not denying or confirming any  of  what you have heard. I am  in watertight contracts  for various collaborations. All I will say  at  the  moment is, wait and  watch. I think  we have a few surprises in  store.”
