We are proud to take our content innovation journey forward with sports, through this historic screening".
Earlier Inox had also beamed selected matches of the recently concluded Men's T20 World Cup 2022 and Asia Cup matches at its selected screens.
Now, the multiplex industry, which has been hit hard during the lockdown and Covid-induced restriction for almost two years, is looking for alternate revenue sources beyond the traditional film exhibition business.
The players have rolled out new initiatives, such as private screening of films for merchandising business.
The industry is also working to increase revenue from the Food and beverage (F&B) segment by boosting its revenue.
