Ikonz Studios, known for its role in managing digital IP’s and metaverse, has roped in Amitabh Bachchan and they plan to raise $10 million in the round A of funding.
Founder and CEO of Ikonz, Mr. Abhinav Varma Kalidindi, comments, “It’s a momentous day for Ikonz as the true symbolism our name has been derived with the icon Amitabh Bachchan joining forces with us. Together we will leverage the power of generative AI to create immersive experiences that transcend physical boundaries. With our state-of-the art technology, fans will now have the opportunity to interact with their favorite actor like never before. Who knows you might even be able to take selfies with Amit ji in your city.”
Amitabh Bachchan is also excited about exploring this new metaverse world. He is amazed at the way technology is evolving, the AI knowledge and innovations that are happening at a quick pace.
IKONZ is backed by several investors such as Village Global, a venture firm bankrolled by Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Reid Hoffman. The IKONZ team will work closely with Mr. Bachchan to deliver a unique experience to the fans. The company already works with Amar Chitra Katha, Tinkle, Chacha Chaudhary and several other icons and creators.
The company has also received investments from Woodstock and Polygon, and this will keep Ikonz in the digital world for a long, long time.
