Company speak

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.".

"This year is also marked by strong pre-sales of majority of our film slate including, Dishoom, Baar Baar Dekho, Rock On 2, Banjo as well as regional films to leading satellite channels, as a part of our de-risking strategy and ensuring revenue and cash flow visibility," Lulla said.

"Q2-17 has also begun well with the power packed performance of Dishoom and Happy Bhaag Jayegi and our Telugu release Janatha Garage is heading to be the biggest Telugu grosser of this year,” Lulla added.
