Boomika is produced by Karthik Subburaj’s ‘Stone Bench Films’ and ‘Passion Studios’.
Recently, The OTT king Netflix has dropped 2 trailers of Boomika. This eerie thriller is about the battle between humankind and nature.

Aishwarya Rajesh also has other movies such as Tuck Jagadish, the Tamil remake of the Malayalam film The Great Indian Kitchen and Republic, among others.
