Films till then were restricted to the major towns and cities. Esoofally's shows included operas, comedies, sports events and travelogues. Between 1908 and 1914, he had travelled across most of India. Later, Esoofally and Irani set up Imperial Film Company. Esoofally set up the Majestic Theatre, again in Bombay, that premiered Alam Ara, India's first talkie.
