The next big release in Bollywood, Chak De India, is going to be having premieres in both London and Los Angeles. The premiere in London is set to take place on August 9th, a day before the official release of the film. While the Los Angeles premiere will take place on August 10th, coinciding with the worldwide release of the film.
These two premieres are part of festivals celebrating Indian culture overseas. The London premiere will be a part of the festival ‘India Now’, which is a three month celebration of London’s growing ties with India, as well as finding more about Indian culture and its impact on the city of London. The premiere is slated to take place at Somerset house.
The premiere in Los Angeles will be a part of ‘India Splendor’. This is a festival which starts on August 10th and will end on August 15th. It is a showcase of all great things in India such as arts, business, technology, food, dance, and spirituality. All of this is part of the huge celebration of the 60th anniversary of India’s independence. Chak De India is set to be the opening night film of the mega event.
