'Jaan-E-Mann' breaks another recordSep 1, 2006 IANS
Mumbai, Sep 1 (IANS) The buzz is that Sajid Nadiadwala's big budget, star studded "Jaan-E-Mann" will release in more than 250 screens in just Mumbai, more than "Krrish" and "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna" that had hit approximately 200-plus screens.
Set for a Diwali release, this Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Preity Zinta starrer earlier set a record by fetching a never-before sum of Rs.70.4 million for the distribution rights for Mumbai territory.
The various distributors who bought the film for a record-breaking fee are not yet selling it to sub-distributors.
"Touchwood, the film is so hot in the trade. I'm confident that our brand Nadiadwala Grandsons, which stands for complete entertainers, will fulfil everyone's expectations with the release of 'Jaan-E-Mann'. I'm sure everyone will benefit from 'Jaan-E-Mann'," said Nadiadwala.
He has also ensured that the best theatres and screens are available for his patrons.
"Jaan-E-Mann" is Shirish Kunder's first directorial venture and Nadiadwala has invested Rs.400 million, a never before for new directors by even the biggest banners.
" 'Jaan-E-Mann' is definitely a hot proposition and its true that we are planning to release the movie in as many as 250-plus screens in the Mumbai territory," said Denis Selarka of Shree Astavinayak Cinevision Ltd, the Mumbai distributor for the film.
And the release of the Rs.4 million trailer has further fuelled the buzz about the film being the biggest release for the festive season.
With Nadiadwala's good box office record and the deadly team of Salman-Akshay, who created a storm in "Mujhse Shaadi Karogi", "Jaan-E-Mann" is indeed the hottest Diwali flick.
The buzz is just getting bigger and better.
