Walt Disney Studios Urban Asian CD Contest

All right Disney fans, get ready for some exciting news!  Urban Asian has teamed up with Walt Disney Studios for an awesome CD soundtrack give-a-away to celebrate the release of Disney’s first Indian films! 

As you may have read on Urban Asian, July 26th saw the Walt Disney Studios first major Indian movie release in the US.  Three films from India – Do Dooni Chaar, Once Upon A Warrior and Zokkomon – were released simultaneously on DVD, video-on-demand, and digital download and were also released on iTunes – all on the same day!  The movies released in their original language and are subtitled in English.  We will share contest details on our facebook page, so make sure you like Urban Asian on Facebook.

Disney is one name with global appeal, so it is no surprise that they are working on such international films, which feature some of Bollywood’s big names (i.e. Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Anupam Kher, etc.)  The collaboration between Disney and Bollywood was designed to expand the entertainment options of diverse cultural groups in North America.  Guess the only thing missing now is a ride at Disney World dedicated to Bollywood! 

Read below for the movie details and check out the trailers!  Stay locked to Urban Asian for further info on the contest!
