Tipping Point, Viacom18 Studios’ digital content arm has finally bought the rights for the screen adaptation of the famous Tanushree Podder’s novel, “Boots Belts Berets”. The buying up process was in talks since some time.
The web series will be capturing the roller-coaster ride of Podder’s four protagonists — Pess, Bertie, Randy and Maachh as they thrust into the world of National Defence Academy (NDA) considered as a journey of boys becoming the men of honour.
Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios, while talking about the web series said in a statement, “Tipping Point seeks out narratives missing in the mainstream. We produced 12 short films, which were received well by viewers owing to their quirky and novel concepts. With this brand new web series, we maintain our proposition to produce standout contemporary content that will shock, awe or warm the heart.”
For Podder, the adaptation of her novel into a web series is just like one of her “dreams come true”.
Speaking of the same, “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.”
