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.?

?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.
