MUMBAI: Multiplex chain operator Fame India has posted a net loss of Rs 36.62 million (Rs 3.66 crore) in Q1 this year, as against a net loss of Rs 95.34 million (Rs 9.53 crore) a year ago.

The company’s revenue, on the other hand, has jumped 139.4 per cent.

According to Fame, the figures for the quarter are not strictly comparable with the corresponding three-months in the previous period, on account of business interruption due to strike called by the producers and distributors forum in the June quarter and on account of the service tax on rentals.
