Disney, UTV ink Indian pact

Partners to produce slate of family pics

The Walt Disney Co., India, and Indian studio UTV Motion Pictures have joined hands to co-produce a slate of Disney-branded films aimed at family audiences.

Disney and UTV will share creative duties while UTV will manage the production, marketing and distribution.

“The combined offering of UTV and Disney content will offer Indian viewers a tremendously diverse range of movies across languages and genres,” said Ronnie Screwvala, CEO of UTV.

Disney holds an equity stake in UTV, paying $190 million in 2008 to own 32% of the company.

Disney’s recent forays into film production, the Telugu-language “Anaganaga — O — Dheerudu,” and the Hindi-language “Do Dooni Chaar” and “Zokkomon,” gained some critical acclaim, but had moderate box office results.
