Mumbai, Nov 22 (UNI) Eros International has entered into a joint venture with Red Carpets Films, a Mukta Arts company, promoted by veteran filmmaker Subhash Ghai, to co-produce his three to four films a year.
In a separate deal, Eros has also acquired global distribution rights of three forthcoming releases of Mukta Arts which include 'Bombay 2 Bangkok' (directed by Nagesh Kukunoor), 'Yuvraaj' (starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif) and 'Black&White' -- both directed by veteran showman Subhash Ghai himself.
Commenting on the development, Eros International president (India) Sunil Lulla said, ''We are excited about tying up with one of the leading veterans in the industry like Subhash Ghai. With this tie-up, we continue to focus on our strategic priorities that include presenting quality film content to discerning audiences. We are looking forward to leveraging Eros' global distribution in releasing this bouquet of prestigious releases by Mukta Arts.'' ''Mukta Arts and Eros enjoy a special relationship and through this tie-up, we are confident of reaching out to a wider number of audiences worldwide through their excellent distribution infrastructure. We have had a great past track record with Eros with super hits going back a long way like 'Ram Lakhan', 'Khalnayak', 'Pardes' and 'Taal','' said Subhash Ghai.
'Bombay 2 Bangkok', a breezy cross-cultural story, directed by the talented Nagesh Kukunoor, stars Shreyas Talpade and Thai actress Lena Christensen in lead roles, along with a special appearance by Naseeruddin Shah. With 'Yuvraaj' and 'Black&White', showman Ghai dons the director's hat again.
While 'Yuvraaj', a musical extravaganza, has Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in lead roles, Black&White -- a social thriller -- will showcase two new comers Anurag Sinha and Aditi Sharma along with Anil Kapoor as the protagonist.
