Reliance Release Four Karan Johar Films

Kareena Kapoor starrer 'Gori tere pyaar mein' will roll out first

Reliance Entertainment has signed on to release four Karan Johar-produced Bollywood films overseas, starting with “Gori tere pyaar mein” next month.

Other films are “Hassi toh phassi,”  “Ungli” and “Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya.”

“Gori teri pyaar mein,” starring Kareena Kapoor, is directed by Punit Malhotra and will bow Nov. 22.

“Hassi to phassi,” the directorial debut of adman Vinil Mathew toplining Parineeta Chopra and Sidharth Malholtra, will see release in 2014. Sanjay Dutt, Emraan Hashmi and Kangna Ranaut star in “Ungli,” directed by Renil D’Silva. Its release has been pushed back from September to 2014.

Shashank Khaitan-directed “Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya” stars Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt and went into production in October for a June release.

Johar produces all four films via his Dharma Productions. Reliance most recently collaborated with Viacom 18 on “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.”

“We are very excited about having Reliance Entertainment as our overseas distribution partner for our next four releases. Our strength in content creation matched by their distribution expertise will ensure that the films have the widest possible reach in traditional and non-traditional markets,” said Dharma CEO Apoorva Mehta in a statement.

Reliance chief operating officer Mahesh Ramnathan said, “The collaboration should break new ground in the overseas markets and expand the reputation of both the companies internationally.”
