KUALA LUMPUR: While busy with preparations for his Konsert Awie Romantika 2020, Datuk Azhar Othman or Awie is also planning to produce TV dramas and films next year.

The 51-year-old artiste said that his production company, Rumah Produksi Merah, would begin its operations next year.

“Both the concert and the production company are big blessings for me, and I have been fortunate to have a dedicated team to assist me in realising these two dreams,” he said in a news report today.

Awie said that it took awhile for him to decide on venturing into drama and film productions.

“You need to have the right business partner as well as good support staff,” he said.

Awie who had a go at co-directing a production previously, said that he had no plans to sit in the director’s chair.

“For now, I’m more comfortable being a producer. I’d leave directing to the experts who have more experience in that area.”
