UTV set to release Delhi Belly in Hong Kong on 10 May

MUMBAI: UTV Motion Pictures is set to release Aamir Khan‘s Delhi Belly on 10 May in Hong Kong.

A rip-roaring film, Delhi Belly will release across eight screens in cinemas for the first week with Cantonese subtitles.

After consecutive success of Hindi films in Hong Kong, there has been immense demand of content that has the ability to crossover and work with local audiences across culture and sensibilities.

The film is about Tashi, Arun and Nitin - flatmates, buddies and partners in crime. Tashi is to get married in a month but still doesn‘t know if his fiancé is the one. Arun can‘t make up his mind who he wants to kill first - his girlfriend who has just dumped him or his stupid, annoying boss whose idea of creativity is sketching a smiling banana.

On the other hand, Nitin is about to discover that eating delicious tandoori chicken off a street vendor is going to give him the worst case of Delhi Belly he‘s ever known! Three regular blokes, living the regular life except for one small detail - they are on the hit list of one of the world‘s deadliest crime syndicates. Will they be able to get away before the shit hits the roof and it comes crashing down? Delhi Belly is the meanest comedy you‘re ever likely to see.

Said UTV Motion Pictures Senior Vice President, International Distribution and Syndication Amrita Pandey, "It‘s a very proud moment for us to have our film Delhi Belly release in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has a large young local and expat population and Delhi Belly has done superb business in cities like London, Singapore, Dubai, New York, Sydney, Melbourne, we hope it resonates with audience in Hong Kong. After the phenomenal success of 3 Idiots in Hong Kong, there is huge fan following for Aamir, and correspondingly for Delhi Belly since it is produced by him."

Directed by Abhinay Deo and written by Akshat Verma, Delhi Belly stars Imran Khan, Kunal Roy Kapur and Vir Das.
