Ankita Mishra, IAS, and CEO of Entertainment Society of Goa, honored the team with accolades.

Arya, making his streaming debut with The Village, said, “I’m honored to jump into streaming with this series, working with the talented Milind Rau and Prime Video’s team. It’s more than just a series to me. Playing Gautham allowed me to explore a new genre with an amazing cast and crew. It has scary moments, but it also has emotions and a social message. We’re proud of it, and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

The Village premieres on Prime Video on November 24 in Tamil, with dubbed versions in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi and English subtitles, reaching over 240 countries and territories worldwide.
