With Hollywood building an entire money-spinning franchise out of comic books, Shemaroo is looking to take a page out of the Marvel book with its latest venture.

The content production house has launched a series of comic books based on some iconic Hindi films. The new series was launched at the recent Comic-Con event in Mumbai on 7–8 December 2019.

The movies included in the first set of comics are cult classics like Amar Akbar Anthony (1977), Khakee (2004), Masti (2004), Jab We Met (2007) and Ishqiya (2010). The comics will be available in both Hindi and English. 

The collection has been built using automation and artificial intelligence (AI) that Comicflix uses to convert movies into graphics and comic books. The images look like real characters and give a larger-than-life feel to the usual idea of comics.

Comicflix has been a leader in the AI and automation space and the union with Shemaroo is a classic use-case study of the concept.
