PVR Pictures is proud to give BLUE - one of the most anticipated Bollywood blockbusters this season, the widest release in North India which the industry has ever witnessed. BLUE will be released with 237-238 screenings across Delhi-UP and E. Punjab and beats the record set by last year's hit GHAJINI that was released with 228 screenings in the same territory. BLUE's release in the North has surpassed the screen count that GHAJINI had achieved last year. While GHAJINI was a solo film in its release week with no competition till the next two weeks post its release, PVR Pictures has enabled BLUE to set a new benchmark in the Diwali weekend while there are two more big ticket releases lined up to give a tough competition.
