There are stars in your way, from Amritsar to…Pakistan


BRIDE AND PREJUDICE will be released in Pakistan, which normally does not allow Indian movies, according to the Calcutta Telegraph.

Posters of Aishwarya Rai “will be put up all over Pakistan” because the censors have allowed distributors to buy Gurinder Chadha’s Bride and Prejudice, it was announced in Cannes today.

The mechanics of promoting Aishwarya and the film are being worked out ahead of the June 2 release.

“There are only 270 screens in Pakistan and no multiplexes of the kind you get in Britain or India,” he went on. “We will have 11 to 12 prints, but these will travel from cinema to cinema. Most of the prints will be in Hindi and the film called Balle Balle, rather than Balle Balle: From Amritsar to LA.”

We enjoyed this film and hope everyone else does as well!
