Produced by Leo Media Collective and Amritpal Singh Bindra, Maja Ma is the first Indian Amazon Original movie. “I truly believe that the audience today is looking for content that is fresh, varied, and modernistic in its approach, yet keeps the humble storytelling at heart. Audiences are open to new genres and new experiences and Maja Ma does all that and more”, said Anand, also the director of Vicky Kaushal-starrer Love per Square Foot.
For Aparna Purohit, head of India Originals, Prime Video, foraying into ‘original’ movie production was a natural progression. “Maja Ma is the first of many original movies, which will launch directly on our service. This movie is also special for us as it showcases a female protagonist and her strength of conviction, beautifully portrayed on screen by the Bollywood icon, Madhuri Dixit,” she said.
