Bijli said that even though such films may have a niche audience, PVR is striving to screen all kinds of movies in India.
"We are in the business of showing movies, we need to show all kinds of films. Some will cut across all segments of the society, but we do have multiplexes at locations where the audiences are very discerning," he said.
PVR has distributed some major Hollywood films in India and Bijli said they have long-standing relationships with some of the major studios which enable them to bring overseas content to Indian shores.
"Our criteria is to look at films which have an appeal in India, latest being the 'Twilight' series which just concluded. The five films were a huge success. Then we also had Brad Pitt's 'Killing Them Softly'," said Bijli.
In January, PVR is set to release Mark Wahlberg's 'The Lone Survivor', Katheryn Bigelow's portrayal of the hunt for Osama bin Laden in 'Zero Dark Thirty' and Ewan McGregor-starrer 'The Impossible', based on the true story of a Spanish family's experience of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
