MUMBAI: Eros International Media Limited’s revenue for the quarter ended 30 June, 2015 almost doubled at Rs 480.6 crore, which was 96.5 per cent more than Rs 244.6 crore in Q1 FY15.

The portfolio performance reinforces our strategy of investing in content-driven films, which are prudently budgeted and then extensively monetized across traditional and emerging platforms.”


“As a strategy, we continue to diversify our presence across different film genres, budgets and languages. Further, strong pre-sales for our films remains one of the cornerstones of our strategy,” he added.  


“The start to the second quarter has been exceptional with multiple-record breaker Bajrangi Bhaijaan delivering a worldwide gross of over Rs 5 billion. Last week’s Telugu release, the Mahesh Babu starrer Srimanthudu has opened to record breaking box office numbers. In addition, we have a compelling line-up for the remainder of the year featuring high-profile and promising movies such as Bajirao MastaniWelcome Back, Hero, Gabbar Singh 2, 24 amongst a host of other Hindi and regional movies,” he said.


“Our leadership position in the nascent Indian Media and Entertainment industry, which is witnessing positive structural trends, backed by an expansive library of movies should enable us to create significant value for all our stake holders going forward,” informed Lulla.
