Mumbai, 30th Nov, 2011: Alt Entertainment in association with Cinergy Independent Film Services is set to take the forthcoming film The Dirty Picture to Dubai on Thursday, 1st Dec. to mark a “boombatt” opening of the film. Vidya Balan, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar will give Dubai a heavy dose of “Ooh La La” with a daylong promotions culminating in a special red carpet screening at the Grand Cineplex, Wafi.
The Dirty Picture team is set to paint the town red with their promotions. Their day starts with a press meet at Grand Hyatt, likely to be followed by meet and greet with their Dubai fans at Dubai Mall, also marking the National Day celebrations in Dubai. Their daylong promotions will finally culminate into a grand red carpet screening where Vidya is to burn the red carpet in her scintillating “Silk” avatar along with her co-actors Emraan and Tusshar.
The Dirty Picture is set against the colourful and entertaining backdrop of the fierce male-dominated South-Indian film industry of the 80’s. It chronicles the meteoric rise and steep fall of a screen sensation. The quintessential siren, Reshma, knew her audiences, and it didn’t seem like anything would stop the ambitious starlet, till it did, in the form of unrequited love. To the world, she was the queen of sensuality. But at heart, she was just another woman yearning for love in a ruthless world.
Speaking on the overseas release of the film, Jawahar Sharma, MD, Cinergy Independent Film Services added, “We are very glad to be distributing the film internationally. The film is generating a lot of interest and and the music has really caught on with the youth abroad. There has been a gradual change in the pattern of consumption for Indian films and the audience have become receptive to non-conventional films and subjects. We are confident that The Dirty Picture will appeal to all customer segments overseas.”
Produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor. The film is directed by Milan Luthria and music is by Vishal – Shekhar. The film is distributed internationally by Cinergy Independent Film Services.
