It is also talking to several leading media companies, including Zee Telefilms, Star and Sony Entertainment Television to enter into various forms of strategic partnerships including a dilution in stake.

B4U’s global revenues are expected to be around $22 million in the current financial year. Out of which, India will account for 40 per cent of the revenues. The balance is expected to come from overseas. The company expects a loss of $6 million. But after amortisation of some expenses, the loss is expected to stabilise at $3 million.
