Eros’ Kishore Lulla wins ‘Entertainment Visionary’ award

MUMBAI: Eros international executive chairman Kishore Lulla has bagged the Entertainment Visionary award at the 2015 Annual Gala Dinner organized by Asia Society Southern California on 20 June.

The gala evening honoured Lulla’s quest to connect the Indian diaspora through films and bridging of cultures by introducing Bollywood to non-Indian audiences. 

Lulla said, “It is an honour to be recognised by the reputed Asia Society Southern California and I’m grateful to my family, the Eros team, our associates, investors and the Indian film industry for their unstinted support. It continues to be a remarkable journey for us at Eros and I would like to offer my sincere thanks to the Asia Society in appreciating our endeavor to bring Indian cinema to the forefront globally.”

Asia Society Southern California & of McLain Partners LLC chairman Thomas McLain added, Kishore Lulla is much more than a head of a successful film studio, who controls 40 per cent of the Hindi language film market in India; he’s also a philanthropist who is seeking to bring 250 million Indian children out of poverty through his educational initiatives and a visionary who is promoting equality for women in the workplace in India. His personal story of starting his business in Israel and Germany inspired all, and at the same time he kept the audience laughing with his great sense of humor. Kishore’s goals are synonymous with those of the Asia Society – we are both building bridges between the East and West through education, culture and business initiatives.”
