Mr. Simon Gregory, Director of Markets, Tourism Ireland, comments, ''Bollywood is constantly on the lookout for exotic locations to shoot their movies. Ireland offers varied landscapes and this has resulted in a lot of Indian production houses now exploring the option of filming in Ireland. In terms of production it is lucrative in offering subsidies and benefits, as well as providing great locations for both romantic and action films. Award winning movies such as BRAVEHEART, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN etc were filmed here. We are sure that EK THA TIGER will join the ranks of these esteemed movies. We are thankful to Yash Raj Films and Director Kabir Khan for having chosen Ireland as a preferred shooting location.''

Mr. Gregory further adds, ''Bollywood has always been recognized as having a strong influence for potential Indian travelers. Tourism Ireland is confident that the film will help increase awareness of Ireland amongst Indian travelers who are constantly looking out for new destinations to explore. With this in mind, we have invested substantially to promote the film and raise awareness of Ireland as a location for Bollywood films. Tourism Ireland has also worked closely with the Irish Film Board to attract and facilitate film-making in Ireland.''

Mr. Kabir Khan, director, EK THA TIGER, says, ''Ireland was a rewarding experience for us. The locations were very exquisite and we also wanted to shoot the movie at a location which was hitherto untouched by Bollywood. Tourism Ireland and the Irish Film Board helped us tremendously in identifying the appropriate locales which not only added romanticism to the movie, but also helped us maintain our cost of production which is important for the success of any movie.''

The movie was shot in September 2011 in Ireland and will be released in 24 countries worldwide on 15th August 2012, reaching to an audience of over 100 million people.
