Gauri Shinde happily says, “Every time I think, ‘Okay,it’s done now’, more surprises spring up. English Vinglish has gone out of my hands. The baby has grown up and is travelling globally charting its own course. I am glad to see it acquire a life of its own.I feel like a very proud parent indeed.”
S. Balki, who produced this game-changer of a film adds, “English Vinglish is a true global film. It has connected with multi cultures and is being loved in country after country. I am thrilled that it is now being released in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. These are massive film-going countries. Our film has proved that language can’t stop a film from being loved.”
Says Kumar Ahuja, President, Business Development Eros International, “English Vinglish is a universal story, nearly a year after its release, the film continues to enamour people across the world. A lot of people living abroad in an English speaking world are trying hard to learn English to be accepted by the adopted society. With newer markets opening for the film consistently, we see resonance with global audiences for the film .In these territories, especially in South Korea, audiences love Indian ethos and drama. We therefore expect the film to do good business in these territories.”
