Friday 14th June 2012 17.30 IST
Disney UTV is on a huge high in 2013! At close to the halfway mark of the year, the studio has carved out for itself by far the largest chunk of the box office pie, both in India and Overseas.
Disney UTV releases account for almost 45 per cent of the Indian box office and more than 40% of the international box office this year!
In the largest film producing nation in the world it is an incredible achievement for just one studio to have garnered such a huge piece of the pie! UTV has released the Top 2 grossing films so far this year in India (YehJawaaniHaiDeewani and Race 2), and has wowed audiences with path breaking high concept movies like Kai Po Che and ABCD. The Studio has had just 6 Hindi releases this year and has still managed to notch up this statistic.
"This is a reflection of our long held philosophy of focusing on great content, irrespective of genre, star cast or budget. Our incredibly diverse slate this year has helped us achieve this benchmark and it only spurs us on to keep our eye out for the next great story to tell!" - Siddharth Roy Kapur, Managing Director - Studios, Disney UTV
With an impressive lineup of releases in the latter half of the year, including Ghanchakkar, Chennai Express, Satyagraha, The Lone Ranger, Monsters University and more, it looks like this overwhelming dominance will continue till the end of 2013!
