Metro release for Bhatt's 'Ankahee'May 19, 2006 Manissha Despaande
The distributors of Vikram Bhatt's "Ankahee" plan a phased release for the film with limited prints in metros before they take it into the interiors as it is a "multiplex film", reports Bollywood Trade.
The film, reportedly an autobiographical account of the Sushmita Sen chapter in Bhatt's life, is produced by PNC and will be released at multiplexes in all major metros first.
Distributor Ravi Machhar, who is releasing the film with merely three prints in the Nizam territory, said the film is essentially a multiplex film meant for the classes.
"It is an emotionally intense film that the intelligentsia will connect to. That's why we will release it with a handful of prints to start with and increase the number of prints as the demand grows," he said.
Director Bhatt admitted to "feeling broken inside" when he saw the film. He had earlier denied the film had anything to do with Sen though he maintained that it was about a man who feels trapped between two women. Click the Movie button below for more info:
