MUMBAI: With their strategic distribution and continuous efforts in giving Indian Cinema a relevant global platform, Zee Studios International is emerging as a strong front-runner in the distribution space in International markets. Having distributed 16 films including Bollywood, Marathi, Malayalam, and Punjabi across markets, they have now emerged as the no.1 distributors in UK and no.2 in North America!
“US has been recognized as one of the fastest growing regions for Indian film distribution in the world. Both, UK and North America, combined, contribute to 40-45% of total box office collections for us. The UK, despite being a declining market for Bollywood films, has shown excessive interest in our films. Zee Studios International stands for quality content and our content connects with audiences across. That is what has got us to the forefront, helping us become number 1 in UK and number 2 in North America. Moreover, we have also effectively opened new markets like Taiwan, Russia, and Turkey amongst others. We are going to continue to put all our efforts to make the coming year as great as 2017” says Vibha Chopra, Head – Zee Studios International (Film Marketing, Distribution, and Acquisition)
