At present, ALTBalaji has 21 original shows on its platform. It is aiming to launch 45 to 50 shows in the next two years.

"About 95% of the content on ALTBalaji is original. We are planning to launch 45 to 50 original shows in the next two years. We are investing in good quality content and we aim to reach subscriber base of over 8 million by 2021," Pantvaidya said.

Pantvaidya said ALTBalaji gets 60% of traction is from cities outside the top-four metros.

In July 2017, Reliance Industries bought 25% stake in Balaji Telefilms for Rs 413 crore.
