BENGALURU: It missed hitting Rs 200 crore PAT by just around Rs 31 lakh in the recently concluded FY-2014.  The Sunil Lulla led Eros International Media Limited (Eros) belongs to a select league of a handful of publicly listed Indian media and entertainment companies that have only grown bigger and bigger in terms of bottom line as well as topline as compared to rest that have made it a norm to show blood across their balance sheets.
