Sony Pictures Films India is famous for backing films such as Piku, 102 Not Out, and Shakuntala Devi. Their motto is to encourage new talent. The production house announced their next venture, an underwater thriller, which is one of its kind. A complete underwater flick after very few underwater films from India such as Blue (2009).

Today, Aarya fame filmmaker Ram Madhvani said that he has joined hands with Sony Pictures Films India for an underwater thriller titled Dive. Sony Pictures Films India dropped a press release claiming that the film will be helmed by debutant Nitin Parmar, an acclaimed ad director, and written by Renuka Kunzru.

Ram Madhvani and Amita Madhvani are co-producing the movie under their banner Ram Madhvani Films (RMF). They said they are looking forward to bringing this 'unique' story to life. "We are very happy and excited about working with Sony Pictures Films India for 'Dive'.

Nitin and Renuka said "We are confident about this unique story and are aiming to put a new spin on the genre of survival drama," they said in a statement. Parmar said it is a dream come true moment for him. "Dive promises to take viewers to the extreme end of survival, and it will be an experience, tailor made for the theatres with a strong emotional arc," he added.

Vivek Krishnani, the Managing Director of Sony Pictures Films India, said "Dive is one of its kind, high stakes survival drama that's waiting to happen in India. It's in sync with our constant thrust for stories that are clutter-breaking yet entertaining". The managing director also said that they are using a new-age film technology that is new to Indian cinema.

Dive is currently in the development stage. Next up for Ram Madhvani is the second season of Sushmita Sen-led web series "Aarya" and "Dhamaka" starring Kartik Aaryan.
