Coordinator general of the city of Madrid Luis Custo said cinema was a bridge of the road between the two countries and would bring the people of the two together.

Colors CEO Raj Nayak said the event would be seen in 135 countries. Revealing a line-up of various programmes, he said that ’24 Part Two’ by Anil Kapoor would be aired this year, apart from the tenth edition of Bigg Boss.
