MUMBAI: Eros International has signed a two years output deal with K Sera Sera. With this memorandum of understanding (MoA), Eros International will be handling the overseas distribution, music and home video rights for K Sera Sera’s forthcoming movies. Talks are also on for co-productions between the two. However, a definitive agreement is expected to be signed next week.
