Eros International plc announces that it has acquired the global distribution rights of Nikhil Advani’s forthcoming film, Salaam-E-Ishq (A Tribute To Love) and is planning the worldwide release on 25th January 2007.

Salaam-E-Ishq is Nikhil Advani’s second directorial venture after the hugely successful Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), which grossed over US$ 13 million. Nikhil’s earlier projects as Assistant Director include Kabhi Khushi Khabhi Gham (2001), which to date is one of the highest grossing Bollywood film internationally.

Eros launched its Indian cinema distribution arm earlier this year with the global release of ‘Omkara’, a powerful Indian adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello. The film received a positive response grossing more than $6.7 million globally at the box-office in the first week of release.

“Nikhil Advani has a wonderful ability to connect emotionally with the audience and capture their imagination. All his films are visually spectacular and we are delighted to be working with him. We are equally excited about working with Sunil Manchanda and Mukesh Talreja on the global release of Salaam-E-Ishq as well as their forthcoming ventures”, said Jyoti Deshpande, Group COO & Commercial Director, Eros International plc.

Salaam-E-Ishq stars a number of high profile Bollywood actors including Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Akshaye Khanna, Govinda and Sohail Khan.

The film was partly shot in the UK (London, Oxford). It is a story of six different couples from six different worlds who are thrown together as a result of their one common problem – love.
