Three years deal between Reliance and Vinod Chopra

Three years deal between Reliance and Vinod Chopra

Vinod Chopra Films and Reliance BIG Entertainment have inked a multiple film production deal to co-produce feature films over the next three years.

The first feature film under the production deal is a mainstream English language film, BROKEN HORSES, which will be directed by Vinod Chopra himself while the second film is based on the classic Indian tale, TAALISMAAN, to be directed by Ram Madhvani.

Chopra's BROKEN HORSES , with a screenplay based on an original story by Chopra himself, is the work of several award-winning writers including Abhijat Joshi (Lage Raho Munnabhai, Eklavya and 64 Squares) and Jason Richman (Bangkok Dangerous, Swing Vote), and legendary BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominated screenwriter and executive producer, Nick Pileggi as script consultant (Goodfellas, Casino and American Gangster). Chopra has recently returned from script and development meetings in Los Angeles and scouting locations in New Mexico.

Ram Madhavani’s TAALISMAAN is a love story inspired by the epic novel, Chandrakanta, written in 1892 by Babu Devkinandan Khatri, which inter-weaves and mixes intoxicating elements of magic and war.

Commenting on the association of Vinod Chopra Films and Reliance BIG Entertainment, Chopra said, “Vinod Chopra Films is proud to be known for raising the bar in Indian cinema, discovering and nurturing new talent, giving established filmmakers and actors the opportunities to excel in their works and striving for excellence without compromise. We are excited and proud to be associated with Reliance BIG Entertainment and know that this alliance will ensure that our films reach every corner of the world, allowing us to take our cinema to the next level.

Amit Khanna, Chairman of Reliance BIG Entertainment remarked, “Bringing Vinod Chopra Films to Reliance BIG Entertainment is a major coup for us. To be able to collaborate with someone as passionate about the industry as Vinod is both an exciting opportunity and a privilege. We look forward to celebrating future success together.”
