    Today, when the intellectual brigade of the west are spinning towards the east in search of rich dramatic contents and chronicles of multi-ethnic and soulful credentials; we in INDIA feel blessed with the existence of a huge warehouse of modern authors, whose works are critically appreciated worldwide. These authors have frequently been producing immense literary works of unmatched international quality. Most of their works consist of unadulterated human stories which reflect diversified socio-cultural issues of universal significance. And many of their plots revolve around the conflicts of Indians or South- Asians in general, who are settled in different parts of the globe. So, a series of feature films, each based on these highly commendable literary resources will be worth pioneering because of several lucrative factors, both in terms of creative and commercial aspect.
    In creative perspective, it’s a great opportunity to explore strong dramatic contents, accentuate multi-cultural cohesiveness, expose various locations in Europe, America or Africa and absorb artists and technicians from different part of the world for a single project. While in terms of commercial perspective, substance of each film will automatically make the entire sequel truly international in form and nature, thus bringing in a huge global business and exposure along with a strong hold in the domestic market too.
    The content of each feature will profoundly be based on a brilliant story, published or unsullied, written by one of these prolific writers. Though each film will be very unique from the other in terms of storytelling yet there will be something common in characteristics between all of them which will make them an integral part of a large and beautiful motion picture sequel.
