PostSubject: ★ Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger premieres in Japan !   Thu Mar 07, 2013 4:49 pm

Tokyo: Director Kabir Khan is keeping his fingers crossed hoping that his blockbuster project‘Ek Tha Tiger’, which was premiered today, is accepted by the Japanese audience and proves to be a success as it was in India.

The Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer is the first Bollywood movie to be released in Japan on such a large scale, with a total of 30 prints. Other movies like ‘Don 2‘, ‘3 Idiots‘ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ will also be released here.

The screening saw a large number of Japanese people in attendance and a few Indians. There was continuous cheer and hooting from the audience during the screening, showing their excitement.

“It is a dream come true to show my movie in Japan. Earlier Hindi movies have been released here but with 2-3 prints. This is the first time a Bollywood movie is being treated like a Japanese film. I am honoured to enter the Japanese market and I hope audience here enjoys the movie,” Kabir said.

The movie was a success in India and made over 100 crores. Kabir added that he is lucky to have got such a
response world wide and is anxious to see the reaction from Japan.

The film is being released here in collaboration with Nikkatsu studios, a leading production house in Japan. It will be screened in nine major cities of Japan including Osaka, Kyoto, Sapporo and Kobe.

Kabir has been here for the past four days promoting the movie but said he is here more to enjoy the food and the screening is just an added advantage.

“I am here to eat and enjoy Japanese food… I love it. Movie screening is a side effect. I have been promoting the movie all over and I completely love the culture here. People are so humble and considerate.”

On the film’s lead actor’s absence, Kabir said, “Salman is in Dubai from where he is flying for his treatment and Katrina also has other commitments. But they are both very happy about the premiere.”

The director is also looking for locations in Japan to shoot his next untitled project.

PostSubject: ★ YRF Makes A Major Breakthrough In Japan !    Thu Mar 07, 2013 4:51 pm

March 7th, 2013



ash Raj Films makes a major breakthrough in Japan – a significant territory that has eluded an Indian cinema presence in a big way until now. But things are about to change. And this change has been made possible by YRF tying up with Japan’s oldest major movie studio and entertainment company known for its film and television productions - Nikkatsu Corporation, who will be releasing the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif historic blockbuster, Ek Tha Tiger, directed by Kabir Khan. The release is planned for 7th March i.e. today with a grand premiere in Tokyo. This will be followed by Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma releasing later this summer.

As part of the exciting week planned in Japan, a press conference was held yesterday in Osaka -’Bollywood Meets Kansai’, and was attended by Ek Tha Tiger Director, Kabir Khan, Head of YRF Overseas - Avtar Panesar and Head of YRF Production - Aashish Singh. The conference was hosted by the Consul General of India, Mr. Vikas Swarup (also the well-known writer of Q&A – a book which went on to be made in to Slumdog Millionaire) along with more than 30 representatives of leading media outlets, including TV crews from MBS and KTV, who were present at the event.

The Consul General along with Kabir Khan and the esteemed guests of honour, touched upon the vibrant Indian Film Industry and its emergence as a major export from India and how the arrival of Indian Films is extremely thrilling for the Japanese people and the 26,000 Indians that live there. Kabir Khan spoke about how the film was made, the stars and the locations used in the film and his desire to shoot in Japan in the near future.

Aashish Singh was quite impressed by the locations he saw during his visit to Japan and Avtar Panesar stressed upon the business of Bollywood in the international Markets and the dynamic association of YRF with Nikkatsu, a reputed company that has a 100 year history. He also touched upon how this release is being watched closely not just by YRF but the entire Indian film industry.

Stay tuned for more as we get details of the premiere of Ek tha Tiger which took place today!
