Delhi Belly goes to China
Delhi Belly directed by Abhinay Deo was one of the most talked about film last year. The film that garnered rave reviews from the audiences and critics alike and even created a new genre in Bollywood, is all now set to venture to the land of the rising sun. After 3 Idiots, My Name Is Khan and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Delhi Belly will hit the Hong Kong theatres.
However, the interesting part is that to capture the entire gamut of the Chinese populace the film will not just have subtitles, in fact the filmmakers have dubbed the film in Cantonese. The reason behind the Chinese release is that Hong Kong has a large young local and expat population, while Delhi Belly has done good business in cities like London, Singapore, Dubai, New York, Sydney and Melbourne, hopes are that it will resonate with the audiences in Hong Kong as well.
Speaking about the forthcoming China release Amrita Pandey - Senior Vice President, International Distribution and Syndication, UTV Motion Pictures, says, "It's a very proud moment for us to have our film Delhi Belly release in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has a large young local and expat population and Delhi Belly has done superb business in cities like London, Singapore, Dubai, New York, Sydney, Melbourne, we hope it resonates with audience in Hong Kong. After the phenomenal success of 3 Idiots in Hong Kong, there is huge fan following for Aamir, and correspondingly for Delhi Belly since it is produced by him".
Delhi Belly will hit the Hong Kong theatres on May 10.
