Now, the trend has started in Telugu as well. Many filmmakers are adapting novels to make web series in Telugu. Needi Nadi Oke Katha and Virata Parvam fame Venu Udugula is also working on a new web series for Aha. He is writing it based on Chalam's popular Novel Maidanam.

More details will be out in a month or so." Venu Udugula also said that he has plans of bankrolling a few films in the future.
