Kishore
Lulla

Executive Co-Chairman

One of the preeminent international distributors of Bollywood content, Mumbai-born, London-based Lulla merged Eros International — founded in 1977 by father Arjan Lulla — with Hollywood mini-major STX Entertainment (“Hustlers”) in July 2020 to form Eros STX Global Corp., creating what it terms a powerhouse between East and West. Lulla became co-chair, and STX’s Robert Simonds was named executive chairman and CEO. In the past, Eros was dogged by short-selling investors who claimed misrepresented revenues, and Wall Street has been similarly tough on Eros STX, which saw its stock price fall 30% in its first month of trading. In March, the company’s streaming division, Eros Now, run by Lulla’s daughter Rishika Lulla Singh, announced a partnership with NBCUniversal for some 2,000 hours of English-language content.
