Titanic sails back to India after 15 years, to show in 3D avatar

MUMBAI: James Cameron’s Titanic is going to be re-released in India on 5 April, albeit in its new 3D makeover in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

The release marks the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the sailing of the Titanic while paying a special tribute to the tragedy that took place in 1912.

As a promotional initiative, Fox Star Studios India has flown down producer Jon Landau, the man behind the two biggest grossers Titanic and Avatar , for a tour of Mumbai and Delhi. The producer will present 45 minutes of the film in 3D to media and prominent Bollywood personalities at PVR Juhu on 22 March. What‘s more, he is carrying with him the prestigious Oscar statuette he won for Titanic in 1997.

Confirming Landau‘s visit, Fox Star Studios India CEO Vijay Singh said, "We are extremely happy to host Landau, who is in the city. There is huge excitement for Titanic 3D in India with an unprecedented 2.5 million fans on its social networking page."

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, Titanic first released in 1997 and is one of the greatest love stories of all time, having won 11 Oscars.

Speaking about his film, Cameron has said in a statement, "We get to bring Titanic back to the big screen after having been gone for 15 years. I‘ve always thought of watching this film in theatres as a social phenomenon where parents will take their children or teenagers would go with their mom. I‘m a strong believer in the theatrical experience in general and specifically for this film."
