It is undertaking game development and publishing in collaboration with Yash Raj Films Pvt. Ltd., India’s leading movie company, and is a frontrunner in Indian domestic mobile gaming market creation.

With this investment, DI intends to accelerate its investment in India’s digital media sector including mobile gaming.
