We released ‘Ek Villain Returns’ in theatres in July to a positive audience response which is also reflected in its box office collection amounting to 51+ crore till date. Additionally, we have a robust pipeline of 6 more movies to be released this year.

“As regards our digital business AltBalaji, we have inked some exciting deals with some of the leading content creators of our industry as well as continue to produce niche content driven shows in order to create a strong footprint in the OTT segment. We continue to have strong controls on the cash spend while driving overall profitability including some strong strategic content sharing deals which allows us to further our growth.

“Our TV business continues to perform well in terms of production hours and we hope to improve this momentum as 2 new shows will commence telecast next quarter in addition to the 8 shows that we currently have on air across channels and genres. As always, we are confident that our content will strike a chord with audiences as our storytelling is backed by strong creative capabilities which drives our business growth.”
