Dubbed Bollywood pics sold to Middle East

Indian studio UTV has signed a slew of TV deals for the Middle East, for their library of Bollywood titles.

UTV has sold Arabic-dubbed versions of “Chance Pe Dance,” “What’s Your Rashee,” “Wake Up Sid” and “Main aur Mrs Khanna” to pan-Arab free-to-air satcaster MBC.

The deal follows the ratings success of “Jodhaa Akbar,” which became the first Hindi-language film dubbed in Arabic to air in the Middle East when it aired on MBC recently.

The company has also concluded deals for “Jodhaa Akbar,” “Fashion,” “Oye Lucky,” “Race” and “Kismat Konnection” to air on Dubai’s Infinity TV, Kuwait TV and Abu Dhabi TV.
