Vikram Malhotra, founder, and CEO, Abundantia Entertainment said Menon has a unique style of storytelling that is in sync with the company’s vision.

“… Her stories are underpinned with strong women characters that fit in well with Abundantia’s vision of telling impactful stories. I’m confident that together, Anu and Abundantia will delight the audience yet again,” Malhotra added.
