In a recent collaboration, Pratilipi, a digital storytelling platform that publishes stories in 12 Indian language has partnered with T-Series, a film and music production company, to bring forth unique movie to comic book adaptations.
The Yaariyan 2 comics is the story of three cousins—Shikhar, Ladli, and Bajrang—who reunite in Mumbai to chase their dreams and explore life's adventures. The comic series will depict the bubbly versions of the power-packed star cast featuring Diyva Khosla Kumar, Yash Dasgupta, Meezaan Jafri, Warina Hussain, Pearl V. Puri, and Priya P. Varrier. It will feature a total of 10 episodes, published across both print and digital formats, in both Hindi and English and available for reading on the Pratilipi Comics app free of cost.
Rajeev Tamhankar, Head of Pratilipi Comics, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, “Comic books being adapted to feature films and television dramas are very common – from Marvel Comics to DC, and even Archies, the world has read and seen them all. But launching the Yaariyan 2 comics has been an exhilarating roller coaster ride for us because of how unique it is.
Comic writer Akash Pathak who worked on the adaptation added, “As a writer, it was both interesting and challenging to work on this project. The movie explores the relationship between three cousins, their fun-filled yet emotional journey, and I have endeavoured to capture those feelings in these small chapters of comics.”
Krupali Borkhatariya, the artist behind the graphics of the comic series said, “In this project, I ventured into the exciting world of experimenting with renowned faces, which presented its own unique set of challenges. I've employed a variety of digital art techniques to breathe life into this comic.”
