Viacom18 Studios’ digital content arm Tipping Point is to adapt Tanushree Podder and Roli Books’ bestselling novel, Boots Belts Berets, into a series.

Ajit Andhare COO Viacom18 Studios 12 June 2019Put in the National Defence Army, the story charts the journey of four friends Pessi, Bertie, Randy and Maachh who are plucked from their sheltered life into the whirlwind of stringent regimen and endless Puttie Parades. Through the experience, these comrades-in-arms accept life beyond army training and exercises, and establish a bond for life.

“Tipping Point seeks out narratives that are missing in the mainstream. We produced 12 Short Films that were received very well by viewers owing to their quirky and novel concepts. With this brand-new web-series Boots Belts Berets, we maintain our proposition to produce standout contemporary content that will shock, awe or warm the heart,” said Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios (pictured).

The 12 original short films, produced by Tipping Point, were streamed earlier this year by Viacom18’s digital platform Voot.

Author Tanushree Podder said: “I am thrilled that Boots Belts Berets is being adapted into a web series. There’s nothing more exciting for an author than to know that the story will be reaching many more people. It’s a dream come true”.

Priya Kapoor, director at Roli Books, said: “We are delighted that Tanushree's book is going to be adapted into a web series. Her immensely readable books have enjoyed a large readership and a web series would only expand her audience.”
