“The first half of this quarter started on a muted note due to the Cricket World Cup. However, the overall business during the quarter exhibited notable improvement,” said executive director and group CEO Rajesh Mishra. ”The month of December marked a turning point with successful releases across languages, especially Hindi Releases. This upswing led to an uptick in advertising revenue, achieving the highest ever quarterly advertisement revenue since Q3FY20. This underscores the growing confidence of advertisers in cinema as a potent advertising platform. With our Advertisement Screen Network now expanded to 3,407 screens (104 added during the quarter), and exclusive advertising rights secured across another 403 screens through a tie up with TSR Films in January 2024, we hope to accelerate and continue to build on the positive momentum."
