Film discovery app Flickbay, backed by actor and movie director Farhan Akhtar, has raised $890,000 (about Rs 6 crore) in seed funding from Paul Roy, chairman of Dubai-based Riva Digital. The platform provides news, trailers, songs, reviews, ratings, box office collections and information about movies playing in theatres and on TV. It claims to have recorded 70,000 downloads since its launch two weeks ago.
