Sal­man’s next to re­lease in 50 coun­tries

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

From North African coun­tries to the small­est towns in In­dia, Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Sal­man Khan’s (above) up­com­ing film, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan, will be dis­trib­uted far and wide.

Talk­ing about how ex­cited the in­dus­try is about the movie, trade ex­pert Taran Adarsh says, “Ex­pec­ta­tions from Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan are hu­mon­gous, be­cause it is re­leas­ing on Eid, and brings back the com­bi­na­tion of Sal­man Khan and Kabir Khan (di­rec­tor) af­ter the suc­cess­ful film, Ek Tha Tiger (2012). If the movie gets a big re­lease in In­dia, as well as in the in­ter­na­tional mar­kets, it only goes to prove that the film is pip­ing hot among the au­di­ence, dis­trib­u­tors and ex­hibitors.”

The film will cover ap­prox­i­mately 50 coun­tries out­side In­dia, and more than 700 screens. Out of these, the four ma­jor in­ter­na­tional mar­kets — USA, UK, UAE and Aus­tralia — have 450 screens. In to­tal­ity, the film will be re­leas­ing in more than 5,000 screens, with ap­prox­i­mately 4,500 prints in In­dia and over­seas. While the film will fol­low the norm, and re­lease on Fri­day, July 17, in most of these coun­tries, in some non-tra­di­tional mar­kets such as Morocco, Tu­nisia, Korea, Tai­wan and Poland, it will re­lease at a later date.

Amar Bu­tala, co-pro­ducer and COO, Sal­man Khan Films, says, “Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan is this year’s most awaited film, be it for the au­di­ences, the dis­trib­u­tors or ex­hibitors. This will be Sal­man’s widest re­lease till date in In­dia and in the over­seas mar­ket. We are con­fi­dent that the con­tent of the film will not only be loved by his fans in In­dia, but will also res­onate with newer au­di­ences across the 50-plus coun­tries the film will re­lease in.”

Pro­duced by Sal­man Khan and Rock­line Venkatesh, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan also stars Ka­reena Kapoor Khan and Nawazud­din Sid­diqui in lead roles. The film will be dis­trib­uted world­wide by Eros In­ter­na­tional, and is sched­uled for a Eid 2015 re­lease.
