UTV Motion Pictures in association with The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) today announced the Middle East premiere of Delhi-6, the keenly awaited collaboration of UTV Motion Pictures and BAFTA-nominated director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (Rang De Basanti), at a special evening in Dubai on February 18.
The film's cast, including Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, will be present at the DIFF premiere ahead of the Middle East release on February 19th. The first glimpses of the upcoming blockbuster were shown in December at DIFF's fifth edition before an audience of international press and visitors.
DIFF Artistic Director Masoud Amralla al Ali stated, "Since our first edition, DIFF has been committed to showcasing the best of Indian cinema and Bollywood, one of the most dynamic and exciting filmmaking centres in the world. Not only is Dubai home to a large Indian population, bringing in massive box office returns for Indian films, but the city's location between East and West allows DIFF to introduce our guests from the Middle East and abroad to India's rich cinema culture. Delhi-6, with its themes of community, belonging and love, falls perfectly in line with DIFF's credo, 'Building Bridges, Meeting Minds.' We are honoured to provide a platform for UTV and Rakeysh Mehra to share their newest great collaboration with Dubai audiences."
The premiere will take place at the Grand Cineplex on February 18.
