Today, Tripling is one of the most memorable series in the digital space that strongly resonates with our audience with strong characters, fun moments in a modern Indian family; we wanted to utilize that aspect and weave into it the core ethos of Drivezy. We took our time to bring out season 2, as we wanted to give the comprehensive approach to the series a serious thought. Along with TVFPlay, Tripling will also be streamed simultaneously on SonyLIV – which is further proof of the strength of Tripling’s impact on youth culture. We are certainly excited and looking forward to take the audience on another riveting journey with the popular trio.”
