For the first time in the history of Tamil Cinema, a Tamil film
will be premiered in Hollywood. The lucky film is director
Bharatiraja's Bommalattam. The film has Nana Patekar and
action star Arjun in lead roles. Actress Kajal Agarwal is making
her debut in this film. The films distribution and audio rights
have been bought by an industrialist Nag Ravi who has decided to
promote this film like no other film before.
He plans to give the film an international release. After
looking at rushes of the movie, he was very impressed with the
outcome of the film so far - that he has planned for the film to
have Hollywood premiere. When he suggested this to the director, he
was given the green signal to ahead with his plans.
He said, " I am proud to be the one distributing the film
worldwide. The film is a great example of the advancement of Tamil
Cinema. All the necessary arrangements for the films premiere in
Hollywood is being made." This will be the first Tamil film to ever
have a premiere in Hollywood.
