UTV and ROMP Unveil First Look at Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Delhi-6 at Dubai International Film Fest
Sun Dec 14,2008
The wait is over! Delhi-6, the keenly awaited collaboration of UTV Motion Pictures and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra after Rang De Basanti, was unveiled at the Dubai International Film Festival, before an audience comprising key entertainment media from around the world. In attendance were Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and UTV’s Siddharth Roy Kapur.
The easy camaraderie and free flowing Q and A’s between the director, stars, producers and audience at the press conference reflected the spirit in which the movie was filmed. Rakeysh elaborated on his key influences and the theme of the film. The actors described their experience of working with Rakeysh and with a stellar ensemble cast that the director has put together for the movie. The audience was treated to a glimpse of the teaser theatrical trailer slated to be in theatres later this month as well as a longer \“first look\” of scenes and music from the film. The imagery and music was tremendously captivating, setting up tremendous anticipation for the wordwide release of the film on February 20th, 2009.
The film follows American-born Roshan (Bachchan), who brings his ailing grandmother back to India. Little does he know that the quick trip will turn into the longest journey of his life—a journey within. The backdrop of the story is the ancient walled city of Delhi, a character in herself. She represents the chaos, religion, beliefs and ethos of the Indian people. The pin code of the city is 110006, and with pride of love they call her Delhi-6.
