Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s much anticipated Hollywood venture, Broken Horses, is all set to release on 10th April 2015.
The legendary film-maker, who has always set a new benchmark for the Indian film fraternity and has made some of the most memorable movies that India has cherished like the Munnabhai series, 3 Idiots, Mission Kashmir, Parinda, among several others, has once again decided to reinvent the wheel. He has stepped out of his comfort zone and with Broken Horses he becomes the first Indian filmmaker to make a Hollywood Production – it is the first Hollywood film produced, directed and written by an Indian!
Set in the shadows of the US–Mexico border gang wars, Broken Horses is an epic thriller about the bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty, and the futility of violence. The film has been co-written by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Abhijat Joshi (PK, 3 Idiots, Lage Raho Munnabhai, Mission Kashmir) and it based on an original story by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Broken Horses will be marketed and distributed by UTV Motion Pictures in international markets.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with Vidhu Vinod Chopra on one of the most anticipated movies of this year, ‘PK’. He has an impeccable track record and we are happy to collaborate with him on his first Hollywood project ‘Broken Horses’. As a studio we have always believed in building and fostering great professional relationships and opportunities like these help us strengthen them further”, says, Amrita Pandey, VP and Head, Marketing & Distribution, Studios, Disney India.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra says, “Making a film in Hollywood was extremely challenging, it’s the first time ever that an Indian has written, directed and produced a Hollywood film.

I am delighted that UTV Motion Pictures has come on board to market and distribute the film in international markets.”
