Further to the breaking news about the release of the Mohit Suri-directed AWARAPAN in Pakistan, we have an update that the film will hit cinemas in Pakistan on July 6, a week after its worldwide release.
According to Sohail Khan, the film's executive producer in Pakistan, "This is a great moment for us. Everyone here looks forward to quality Bollywood products and watches them on cable and on DVD. Now they will have the opportunity to watch it on the big screen."
Khan added that AWARAPAN would release in key cities like Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi, to name a few, on as many as 15-17 prints.
Director Mohit Suri remarked, "I feel proud of AWARAPAN crossing the border. That was the underlying theme of the film. The walls have been broken and I am looking forward to the response from the Pakistani audience."
AWARAPAN was given a wide release by Studio 18 on almost 55 prints in other overseas territories, including US, UK, UAE, Spain and Mauritius, to name a few. In the UK, it garnered the highest opening for an Emraan Hashmi-starrer.
