PVR Pictures acquires distribution rights for ‘The Warrior Queen of Jhansi’


The epic film The Warrior Queen of Jhansi has partnered with PVR Pictures for their India distribution beginning on November 29th. This follows back to back distribution agreements with Roadside Attractions for the US market and Mile End for the Canadian market, with both releasing the film on November 15th.

PVR Pictures Ltd., CEO, Kamal Gianchandani said, “The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is an enthralling story which has been an inspiration for many generations. We are excited to bring this gem to millions of Indian movie-goers. Swati Bhise, with whom we had the pleasure of distributing The Man Who Knew Infinity has created an epic about India’s greatest heroine and researched the language, costumes and other 19th century detail in great depth. We’re delighted that Swati has brought this great Indian heroine to global audiences.”

Swati Bhise said “It’s a great honor to be represented by PVR in India where they have the distinction of thinking outside the box. It’s a privilege to share this epic historical Hollywood film on an Indian subject with an international cast. It’s also the first of its kind with an Indian female lead actor in a Hollywood film and a first to be dubbed in Marathi where we salute the Rani’s roots.”

The Warrior Queen of Jhansi releases all over India on November 29th.
