Hindi movie channels revisit acquisition strategy in 2014

Star Gold and Movies OK EVP and GM Hemal Jhaveri had told in an earlier interaction that the network had virtually stopped acquiring Hindi movies due to unrealistic price escalation by producers. “We have not acquired a movie for a very long time. We are going very slow on acquisition. For us, we have ‘Kick’, ‘Singham 2', ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Bombay Velvet’. So we have enough on our plate for now and even for the next year,” Jhaveri had noted.
