Every event related to the film industry is taking brands of sponsors to crores of people. That's the reason why big brands are coming forward as sponsors. People are talking about South Indian films not only in India, but also globally. This is a big business opportunity for us and sponsors. We are the undisputed leader in movie events, promotions, he added.
