India-China Films Prominent on Bollywood Studio Trinity Pictures’ Slate

Kabir Khan, director of 2015 blockbuster “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” that starred Salman Khan and grossed $93 million worldwide, will direct an Indo-China co-production for Trinity Pictures.

Trinity was set up by Indian studio Eros International with a view to producing franchise features. Khan’s as-yet-untitled film will star Indian and Chinese A-listers and will be shot in both Hindi and Mandarin. Trinity describes the film as “a human drama exploring the central character’s journey from India to China.”

Trinity is also planning another Indo-Chinese co-production. Both are with a leading Chinese studio, the identity of which has not been revealed.

Other films on the Trinity slate, all untitled so far, include an action film focusing on a child secret agent by Amole Gupte (“Stanley’s Tiffin Box”); a spy thriller from Siddharth Anand (“Bang Bang”); an elephant themed tale in the Hindi and Tamil versions from Prabhu Solomon (“Kayal”); and a buddy cop film in Hindi and Tamil versions by Krish Jagarlamudi (“Gabbar Is Back”).

The films are among 10 scripts developed by Trinity’s in-house team of writers mentored by Shridhar Raghavan (“Dum Maaro Dum”). They will go into production in 2017.

Jyoti Deshpande, Group CEO, Eros International said, “Trinity’s strategy is all about conceiving breakthrough big content ideas and unlocking value from that intellectual property across various distribution platforms for a very long time.”

Ajit Thakur, CEO, Trinity Pictures said, “With Trinity, there is an effort in investing in creating characters that open a world of possibilities – films, digital games, comics, merchandise. We have writers for the first time creating characters first and then building scripts and projects around these characters.”
