Aishwarya’s Guzaarish to release in Latin America
UTV Motion Pictures will be releasing Guzaarish in Peru (Latin America) in February 2012. Continuing its endeavour to open new international markets for Indian Cinema, UTV Motion Pictures is one of the first studios to enter Latin America.
UTV is also releasing the Spanish trailer of UTV Motion Pictures and Dharma Productions Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu in Peru. The film directed by Shakun Batra has Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor as the lead pair and is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Karan Johar.
Amrita Pandey, Senior Vice President, International Distribution and Syndication of UTV Motion Pictures says, ‘Latin America is a new market and we are focusing to make the best out of the region. We’re looking forward to the Guzaarish release in Peru. There have been enquiries on Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu from the region. We hope the Spanish trailers for Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu will pave a way for day and date releases of new movies in the near future.’
Amrita continues, ”Guzaarish is widely picked up by non-traditional international markets besides the traditional ones. The film has been loved by audiences across the world and newer markets are showing keen interest in the film. Because of its cinematic value, even after a year of its release, the response from new audiences is heartening. We are also talking to a leading European distributor to have GUZAARISH released in France. This will be a first-time ever Bollywood acquisition from France.”
Directed by veteran director- producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali and co-produced by SLB Pictures and UTV Motion Pictures, Guzaarish, which released on November 19, 2010, was hugely appreciated by critics from across the world.

Starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and Aditya Roy Kapur in the critically acclaimed lead roles, Sanjay Bhansali himself, made a debut as a music director with this film.
Guzaarish won multiple awards at various leading award ceremonies in 2010-2011 across categories including a couple of them for its astounding cinematography as well as the enchanting music.
