Prithviraj Sukumaran Bids Adieu To August Cinema

After six years of partnership, Superstar Prithviraj ends the partnership in August Cinema

August Cinema India Pvt Limited is a movie Production, Designing and Distribution house which was founded in 2009 by Superstar Prithviraj along with cinematographer Santhosh Sivan, entrepreneur Shaji Nadesan and Actor Arya. August Cinema has been instrumental in producing many memorable hits like Urumi, Indian Rupee, Iyobinte Pusthakam and Anuraga Karikin Vellam to name a few. But Prithviraj announced today through his facebook page that he is ending the partnership.

“Hi all, It’s been 6 years and more. Back in 2011, out of a dream to create a film that would truly attempt to make a statement on the excellence in Malayalam cinema, Santosh Sivan, Shaji Nadesan and I joined hands to form August Cinema Pvt Ltd. Through the last 6 years, we have continuously striven to facilitate deserving and aesthetic cinema and I genuinely am thankful for the efforts of my partners in doing the same.

Today, I believe that it’s time for me to start travelling on a different tangent, and on that journey, I might not always be able to be part of a partnership. So with great memories, heartfelt gratitude and some films that I will be proud of forever, I bid adieu to August Cinemas. I will always remain a well wisher of the company, and I have faith that the brand will continue to be associated with the kind of films I set out to make with this dream. Wishing Shaji Nadesan, Santosh Sivan and Arya the very best in the journey ahead,” posted the actor on facebook.
