Superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Enthiran: The Robot’ released last year and ran to packed houses in many centres across the globe and created the record of becoming the first Indian film to collect more money at the box-office in the history of Indian films. It also ran successfully in many countries. A company has now taken it upon itself to release the film in Korea.
Eros Entertainment is all set to re-release ‘Enthiran’ as it possesses the foreign distribution rights of the film. In the first stage, the film is likely to be released in as many as 50 theatres in the Korean Republic, Eros has indicated. Kumar Ahuja, senior vice-president of Eros, said “We are all set to release the film in areas where the film hadn’t been seen by anyone.
“We would soon be releasing Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra One in Taiwaan, where not many Indian films are released. In fact, this is the first time an Indian film would be screened new in that country. Our next assignment would be to release superstar Rajini’s ‘Enthiran’ in about 50 cinema halls across the Republic of Korea.
“The Tamil, Hindi and Telugu versions of ‘Enthiran: The Robot’ would be released in these screens,” said Ahuja. For starters, Rajini is not new to Koreans who have already seen his ‘Chandramukhi’ and ‘Sivaji: The Boss’ with Korean sub-titles. As such, they would surely be rooting for ‘Enthiran: The Robot’!
