‘R.D.B.’ for videshi audiences in U.S.A.

UTV has decided to re-release the first hit of 2006, RANG DE BASANTI, in the U.S. next year. But this time they are targeting the non-Indian/Asian audience that hadnt watched the film in its first run. Also, the length of the film has been shortened by approx. 25 minutes to cater to the videshi audiences. Thats true, Siddharth Roy Kapur [Senior Vice President, Marketing & Communications, UTV] confirms the development, Rakeysh [Omprakash Mehra] has already re-edited the film. Its going to be a proper mainline release in the U.S. in March next year. Although the release strategy is being worked out currently, Kapur states itll be a good release [prints] in terms of a foreign release. The target audience is not the Indians this time. The business of R.D.B. has already exhausted vis–vis the Indian diaspora. Our target audience is lovers of foreign films, Kapur states, adding that the film wont be dubbed in English, but will have English sub-titles for moviegoers to decipher the goings-on.
