Our company's aim is to bridge the distance between our heritage of theatres/performing arts and audiences of eastern India across the globe. Instead of physically visiting to watch the culture rich theatres and art shows, one would now be able to access it from anywhere or even watch it together with the family on TV inside the safety of the home. In addition, we also intend to bring short films, web series, movies and other shows aimed at regional audiences.
The name ABK is derived from the history behind the famous saying “Ango-Bongo-Kolingo” that depicts the Eastern Region of India to form a platform of showcasing, canvassing, portraying the huge repository of work of Theatres, Drama, Art and Culture and Performing Arts which has remained a treasure trove for centuries and now it is time to present the same in most contemporary format to the rest of the world.
To carry the almost losing and dying formats of performing art as a very interesting art format to the next generation and taking the legendary creation to be carried forward in most natural succession.
To bridge the gap between the offline theatres and audience by presenting the content in an interesting art format on OTT platform and entertain the viewer.
