Through this opportunity, PVR INOX will be able to pivot into pre-ticketed F&B revenue stream as opposed to the current post-ticketed F&B revenue that's very movie line up dependent. It is the first of the many steps we intend to take to further expand our F&B business.

Also, our ability to co-promote both movies and food to 150 million audience would be the USP of this collaboration." Devyani International is the largest franchisee for Yum Brands (KFC & Pizza Hut) in India.

Devyani is also the sole franchisee for Costa Coffee Brand and stores in India. DIL also caters to the South Indian vegetarian food with Vaango, in the Food Retail Business. Devyani operates 1,750 stores across brands in over 250 cities in India.

Whereas PVR INOX is India's largest film exhibition company, with 1748 screens across 360 properties in 112 cities.
