Eros International Media Ltd (Eros International), the largest studio in India has acquired the worldwide rights of Excel Entertainment’s forthcoming releases — Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Abhinay Deo’s Game. The Company has scheduled the release of these two highly anticipated films in 2011.
For Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which is a road film, director Zoya Akhtar has achieved a casting coup of Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin. A young fun film shot largely across Spain, Zindagi Na Mile Dobara has already been creating a huge buzz and is expected to wow audiences next year.
Game, a whodunit with twists and turns stars Abhishek Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, Sarah Jane Dias, Jimmy Shergill, Shahana Goswami, Gauhar Khan, Boman Irani and Anupam Kher. Directed by Abhinay Deo and with dialogues by Farhan Akhtar, Game promises to be a slick edge-of-the-seat thriller.
Speaking on the announcement, Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International Media Ltd said, “Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar are great producers and have carved a niche for themselves for producing some edgy cinema. Eros International is delighted to associate with them and release these highly anticipated films through our extensive distribution network and thereby showcasing the movies to a global audience.”
Producer Ritesh Sidhwani, Excel Entertainment added, “Eros International has had fabulous track record of global distribution for over 33 years and we are looking forward to our two very important films Game and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara reaching out to maximum audiences worldwide through their unparalleled distribution network.”
