OTTs are the current phenomenon. Post the pandemic the platforms saw a big rise in popularity and viewership and they are banking on it. They are no longer just a platform to watch films and shows. These platforms always try to offer something new.
The first dedicated Telugu OTT platform Aha needs a special mention here as the ownership is bringing exciting content at regular intervals. The platform already has the credit of bringing Nandamuri Balakrishna to the OTT space with Unstoppable with NBK talk show.
Now Aha is all set to introduce a popular Tollywood director to the OTT arena. Successful director Anil Ravipudi is all set to turn the Chairman of a comedy show titled Comedy Stock Exchange. The show will be released in 10 episodes and the promo was released recently.
The promo gives a hint at how the show is going to be. We can expect 'The Great Indian Laughter Challenge' like a comedy show from the new series. Small screen sensation Sudigali Sudheer is the host of the show while Deepika Pilli acts as the other host.
Noted comedians are going to be the contestants of the show including Mukku Avinash, Saddam, Express Hari, and Gnaneshwar. Comedy Stock Exchange show will stream on Aha from the 10th of December.
Anil Ravipudi is a new member from the Tollywood industry to make the OTT debut after Nandamuri Balakrishna. The promo created interest among the viewers for the show and it might get a good number of views from the first episode itself.
On the work front, Anil Ravipudi is busy with Balakrishna's project which is likely to start soon. The film which is tentatively titled NBK108 was announced in a big way on the occasion of Nandamuri Balakrishna's birthday.
It is said that a few Bollywood actors are in consideration for the cast of the film and more details would be out once things get sorted.
