This could well be a first. Even though plans for ENGLISH VINGLISH release in Japan had been firmed up a while ago, there is good news for all associated with the Sridevi starrer. With the special screenings of the Gauri Shinde directed film fetching a fantastic all around response from the local audience as well as the bigwigs from the political world, ENGLISH VINGLISH would now be releasing on a much wider scale.
While it was earlier aiming for 25 screens across the country, the film would now be releasing at around 40 screens, hence making it one of the wider international releases on this side of the world.
Confirms Boney Kapoor, "Yes, the build up for the film has been really huge and the buzz is on a constant high ever since the First Lady of Japan and the Indian ambassador saw the film. The film has been dubbed in Japanese due to which local exhibitors have shown great interest too. The demand has been high and hence the film would be arriving on 40 screens."
For Eros International, this is a huge high as other than COCKTAIL, which continues to make waves internationally in many unchartered territories, now ENGLISH VINGLISH too is going main stream in a big way.
Meanwhile Sridevi, Boney Kapoor and family may be traveling to Japan again to catch the film once it releases there on 26th June.
"Yes, hopefully we will," says Boney, "The hospitality there has been great while people are absolutely wonderful. It is rare to find such gentle people. I am positive that ENGLISH VINGLISH would get a very warm reception there."
