Soon Solanki Roy will make her big-screen debut under the same banner.
Some of the contents produced by Windows have been lauded nationwide. Praktan’s rights were bought by Vishesh Films and they made it in Hindi with the title Jalebi. Ramdhanu was remade in Malayalam by director Rajesh Nair with actors Biju Menon, Laxmipriya and Suhasini Manirathnam. It was called Salt Mango Tree. Konttho has already been remade in Malayalam by Prajesh Sen and the film stars Jayasuriya and Manju Warrier.
In 2017, Windows launched their music label, Windows Music with the non-film music album, Ebar Morle Gachh Hawbo by Anupam Roy and Band.
The production house has an ongoing reality show, Rannabanna, which is aired on Star Jalsa. The show has completed its first year. More fiction and non-fiction shows are in the offing.
Windows has a vibrant team that does commercials. They have done ads for brands like ITC Sunrise Masalas and the Adani Group.
