Mr Inder Preet Singh, Managing Director Midas Investments and Chairman Midas Entertainment LLP, says “This is a very interesting space for our investors not only from a diversification perspective but also with the exponential growth in Mobile and Digital technologies that we are witnessing, the demand for content will only increase with time and we want to capitalize on this.
