By Manisha Deshpande
Producer Manjeet Maan who had last won critical acclaim for her ZINDAGI KHOOBSURAT HAI, is planning a simultaneous Indian and international release for her Punjabi-English bilingual, DES HO YA PARDES. The Gurdas Mann-Juhi Chawla-Divya Dutta-Parmeet Sethi starrer, revolving around a true story in Punjab, is hot in the international market, according to Manjeet, who recently clinched a deal for the North American rights of the film with overseas distributors. "I am now negotiating with U.K.distributors for the film. Films based in Punjab are a great draw among the Asian audiences settled in U.K. most of whom have their roots in Punjab," says Manjeet, who is also expecting the music of the film to click in a big way in the overseas market. "Gurdas has written and sung all the songs in the film and he has a great following among the audiences there," she says.
