The latest film from Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, who is a brand ambassador for Etihad Airways, is to get its world premiere in the carrier’s home city of Abu Dhabi on September 8.
The capital will roll out the red carpet for Kaif’s new release ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, a romantic comedy in which she stars alongside fellow Bollywood star Imran Khan and Pakistani singer Ali Zafar.
“Everyone holds premieres in Dubai, and we wanted to be different; so, we chose the capital,” Nelson D’Souza from Yash Raj Films, the producers of the film, said of their choice of Abu Dhabi over Dubai for the world premiere.
While Dubai has become a hot favourite for Bollywood stars and premieres, this is only the second Bollywood film to be showcased in Abu Dhabi.
The red carpet invite-only event will be held at the Vox Cinemas in the UAE capital from 7pm, with a pre-event held at the Sharaf DG outlet in Abu Dhabi Mall at 5pm.
The film tells the story of an upper middle class man, played by Khan, who falls in love with his brother’s fiancée, played by Kiaf and is based on the Steve Carell Hollywood movie ‘Dan In Real Life’, which has a similar plot.
Kaif is no stranger to Abu Dhabi as in August last year she was unveiled as a brand ambassador for Abu Dhabi-based carrier Etihad Airways.
‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ goes on general release in the UAE on September 8.
