Vice President of International Operations at YRF Avtar Panesar shared his thoughts,
It has always been our endeavor at YRF to take Indian cinema to the widest possible audience. It’s heart-warming to see native audiences connect with our films through festivals , which eventually lead to commercial releases. Japan is a very vibrant market and we hope to build on the earlier successes we have had with Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Ek Tha Tiger.
