PVR Cinema is a leading player in showbiz – exhibition, production and distribution. Currently, they have a total of 39 screens – 28 in Delhi and NCR and 11 in Bangalore. In its next phase of growth, they will not only intensify their presence in the existing centres, but will also foray into centres like Mumbai and Hyderabad. PVR Cinemas has brought in a whole new paradigm shift to cinema viewing experience through high class seating, state of the art screens and audio visual systems.

Kolkata-based Khadim’s is a pioneer in footwear retailing and has a network of 200 retail outlets spread across the country. Said Joydeep Basu Roy, Senior Product Manager, “A growing concern has its own hiccups and we, presently, in a phase of rigorous growth and expansion, were for a long time facing the need to plan our media activities in a professional manner. We are happy to appoint Initiative Media as our media planning agency. We are sure that they will be able to handle our media planning activities across India optimally and effectively.”

Said Kartik Iyer, President, Initiative, “We are delighted with these twin wins, made possible by the efforts of Balbir Kumar in Delhi and Mahesh Motwani in Kolkata. Their respective teams will endeavor to partner these businesses through our committed knowledge-based planning to deliver innovative and incisive media led communication solutions”.
