Guru premiere in Canada

Roger Nair Productions has acquired Canadian rights to writer/director Mani Ratnam‘s Guru. Guru is rumored to be based on the life of Reliance corporation founder and the richest man of India, Late Dhiru Bhai Ambani’s Life. Roger Nair Productions spokesperson Mr. Nair and Kaleidoscope Entertainment Mr. Bobby Bedi announced on Wednesday in a press conference, held at “The Host” that a Star studded World Premiere of Guru is to be held in Toronto on January 11th 2007. This has been a landmark deal between Canada and India making Canada an official territory of Bollywood films. Historically Bollywood film industry has always looked upon North America as one unit and lobbying of Canadian company to be given Video and television rights have been futile, forcing them to get only exhibition rights that did not give them much right to go after video piracy. With a Canadian company acquiring absolute Theatrical, video and TV rights ensures every legal right to curb piracy with the help of police and the justice system. Mr. Bedi was shown the world class Toronto venues fit to host a premiere of this magnitude by OMDC officials followed by a City of Toronto hosted luncheon in celebration of signing of a pioneer deal signed between the two companies.
