Door opens for UTV to distribute Karan Johar's films

MUMBAI: Karan Johar has for the first time moved out of the Yash Raj Films distribution umbrella to rest the revenue fortunes of his two forthcoming movies on Ronnie-Screwvala promoted UTV.

UTV Motion Pictures will get to distribute Dharma Productions‘ Wake Up Sid and an untitled film directed by Rensil D‘Silva.


As per the agreement, UTV holds the worldwide theatrical, home video and satellite distribution rights.






Says Dharma Productions CEO Apoorva Mehta, "UTV will be distributing these two movies. We still have not decided on the release dates, but it would be during the second half of this year."


A mid-budget film, Wake Up Sid is written by Ayan Mukerji and casts Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma in pivotal roles. The music of the film has been composed by the trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.


The big budget, untitled film has been written by Karan Johar and stars Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi. Music has been scored by Salim-Suleiman.

"Our next two productions - My Name is Khan and Koochie Koochie Hota Hain -
are also in the release pipeline for this year. They are currently under production," Mehta adds.


Penned by Karan Johar and Shibani Bathija, My Name is Khan casts Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol and is slated for a December release. Shibani Bathija is the screenplay writer and the music has been given by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy again.


Koochie Koochie Hota Hain is the animated version of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai starring Shahrukh khan, Kajol and Rani Mukherji. The film is directed by Tarun Mansukhani and Prana Studios is the animation studio associated with the flick.
