Commenting on the performance of Q1-17, Eros, executive vice chairman & MD Sunil Lulla said, “Fiscal 2017 has begun on an excellent note for Eros International with notable progress on operational and strategic parameters. Our approach towards investing in high quality portfolio of film content, which is greenlit at appropriate budgets and is monetized across various revenue streams, continues to yield positive results.".
