"CinePlay is a big leap forward for storytellers and their audiences in the country. We are excited to bring an entirely new way of storytelling to a generation that has not been exposed to either these stories or to the power of theatre," Ajit Mohan, CEO, Hotstar, said in a statement.

Subodh Maskara, Chairman and co-founder of CinePlay, said it is presenting a new visual language that "blends the grammar of theatre and the power of cinema". Available in India for Hotstar's premium subscribers, 20 CinePlay titles will release regularly on the platform, starting with five titles being released on Monday.
