Mumbai, Jan 20 (): Bollywood star Salman Khan has chosen Dubai to premiere his film Jai Ho in the city this Wednesday, 22 January.
The Sohail Khan directed film will be screened at the Meydan Imax at 8pm that day in the presence of its cast including Salman Khan, Daisy Shah, Sana Khan and music directors Sajid-Wajid.
Parvez Khan, the co-producer of the film, chairman of Pacific Ventures as well as the main organiser behind the event, said their association with Sohail bhai goes back a long way. Both Salman and Sohail love Dubai a lot and they have an emotional attachment to the city since the initial 15-day shoot of Jai Ho took place there, he said and so, they were keen to have the world premiere in Dubai.
The stars of Jai Ho, who are expected to land on January 22 morning in Dubai, will at first take part in a press conference followed by a red carpet event at the Meydan Imax.
The organisers say the screening of the movie and the after-party is strictly by invite only, but the whole venue is being designed in such a way that fans can view Salman and the rest of the actors on the red carpet.
“Jai Ho” is a remake of Telugu film “Stalin” starring Chiranjeevi. The movie is slated to hit the big screen on 24 January. The film was earlier titled as “Mental” but the title was changed to “Jai Ho” on the suggestion of his father Salim Khan. The plot of the movie is about the power of the ordinary man, which sees Khan fight injustice in society.
Many portions of Jai Ho had been shot at Dubai’s Wonderland Theme and Water Park and the Saif Belhasa Driving Institue, so Salman Khna’s Dubai fans can look forward to many familiar sights in the movie.
Jai Ho will release in UAE theatres on January 23.
