Hiren Gada - Director, Shemaroo Entertainment Limited, shared his thoughts on the occasion, “Miniplex is a richly curated movie premiere service and we are glad to launch it with a partner like Airtel Digital TV. We have seen that, apart from the top few movies of the year, audiences end up missing most movies in theatres. Very often TV channels too don’t carry many such movies and so consumers don’t have access to these movies. With Miniplex, we hope to bridge this gap. In addition, we have also picked good recent movies, which may have already premiered on TV, but don’t get telecast often.”
S.Sriram, CMO – Airtel Digital TV added, “As a customer focused brand, we at Airtel constantly strive to introduce innovative products & services with an aim to enhance our customer’s TV viewing experience. We are therefore happy to partner Shemaroo for the launch of Miniplex which is an innovative service to enable movie buffs to catch up on latest blockbusters in the comfort of their home at an affordable price”.
