Following the critical and commercial successes of Raanjhanaa, Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Nil Battey Sannata and Happy Bhag Jayegi, Eros continues its association with Aanand L Rai and will roll out eight more titles with Colour Yellow which include Rai’s directorial venture starring Shah Rukh Khan, a quirky romantic comedy Shubh Mangal Savdhaan by south director RS Prasanna and two films, Mukkebaz and Manmarziyaan, will be helmed by Anurag Kashyap and Rahul Sankalya's Nimmo. Following the success of Happy Bhag Jayegi, director Mudassar Aziz will reunite on a film he will direct along with another interesting collaboration with Navdeep Singh (of NH10 and Manorama Six Feet Under fame) for a project that is currently in the scripting stage. Additionally, a Malayalam film Moothon starring Nivin Pauly that Rai will be co-producing with Ajay Rai and Alan McAlex, to be directed by Geetu Mohandas, who’s last film Liar's Dice was India’s official entry at the 87th Academy Awards is also in the pipeline from the banner.

Aanand L Rai said, “Eros and Colour Yellow share an amazing synergy which reflects in the kind of films we make together, showcasing Indian ethos that touch hearts. What makes this association special is how, as partners, the teams bond and celebrate each project together.”

Eros' new slate also boasts of five films in association with NextGen Films, namely the blockbuster actor-director duo—Tiger Shroff and Sabbir Khan’s action-packed musical Munna Michael, Sushant Singh Rajput’s space odyssey Chandamama Door Ke, directed by Sanjay Puran Singh and directors Rahul Dholakia and Sabbir Khan’s next projects along with another project titled Make in India to be announced soon.

Director Rahul Dholakia adds, “Eros and NextGen are very established film companies and I am looking forward to partnering with them in my next venture."

Trinity Pictures, the company’s visionary venture and in-house franchise label has five franchises across new and diverse genres lined up in the next couple of years— a spy-superhero film, Sniff directed by Amole Gupte, a live action bilingual (Hindi and Tamil) elephant film to be directed by multiple award winning Tamil director, Prabhu Solomon, ace director Krish’s buddy cop film which will be shot in Hindi and Tamil simultaneously, featuring popular lead actors from both South and Bollywood and two Indo-China co-productions, a first for any Indian studio—Kabir Khan’s travel drama and Siddharth Anand’s cross-cultural romantic comedy.

“It’s exciting to jointly develop the Indo-China project with Eros and I hope we create new milestones together. This project will reach out to a much wider audience, new geographies and territories opening up the fastest growing film market of the world, China”, added director Kabir Khan.
