London: Kishore Lulla, co-founder of the Eros International's UK office in London, has been chosen for the Eastern Eye Asian Business Award for 2007 for providing Indian cinema an international platform.

At a glittering ceremony held at the Hilton Park Lane on Tuesday night, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, presented the coveted award to Lulla in the presence of over 1,000 distinguished invitees from various walks of life.

Other award winners were Surinder Arora (KPMG Entrepreneur of the Year), Shamir Shah (Pricewaterhouse Coopers Young achiever of the Year), Arti Poddar (Hamptons International Newcomer of the year) and Sital Punja (Fortis Bank Community Award).

In his brief address, Prince Andrew said the Asian business community is hugely important and has a vital contribution for UK's prosperity and economy. "You not only do it here, but also at the international level," he said.

Recalling his visit to India last year, Andrew said he was highly impressed with the rapid progress India was making.

"We are hugely indebted and impressed with the activities of the Indian business and the Indian community in this country," he said and wondered whether it was necessary to have a separate category as Asian business since the Asian business is part of the UK business."

Lulla played a key role in the growth of Eros International which now operates in over 50 countries with worldwide offices in India, UK, USA, Dubai, Australia, Fiji and Isle of Man. The company controls content through productions and co-productions, long-term output deals with production houses and talent, and by globally distributing content across all multimedia formats.

Throughout Lulla's tenure he has been instrumental in evolving Eros international from a Bollywood film distribution company into a vertically integrated studio model. The company has become the world's first Indian cinema studio and has a market share of over 35 per cent.
