Yash 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's historic blockbuster, EK THA TIGER, directed by Kabir Khan. The release is planned for 7th March with a grand premiere in Tokyo. This will be followed by Yash Chopra's JAB TAK HAI JAAN, starring Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma releasing later this summer.
