However, the minimum requirement for a show to be confirmed would be 50 seats.

Vkaao is very disruptive and gives control to customers to choose what they want to watch, when and where.

Initially, the service will begin with 500 film titles across different languages and genres.

The company is also planning to increase Vkaao offerings to 1,000 titles in 3 months. By the end of 2017, it will offer around 2,500 film titles.
