Buyers eye Indian ‘Teresa’

Japanese pacts at hand for movie

“Mother Teresa,” a docu drama made in India and distribbed abroad by Sahara, is apparently close to a deal for DVD and cable/satellite rights in Japan.

Company’s international sales topper Ashoke Aggrawal said he was also fielding numerous offers for various rights to the movie from the U.S. and elsewhere, many of them initiated at the recent Mip TV market. Penelope Cruz is among those featured in the film.

“What can I say? Mother Teresa is a world icon. A lot of people want this movie,” he said.

Sahara is also handling “Bose,” touted as one of the most expensive movies ever made in Bollywood at $30 million for the three hour and 40 minute epic. It focuses on a forgotten hero who parts company with Gandhi, and goes to Asia to create an army to fight the British.
