Toronto's Elgin Theatre: World Premiere of Guru on 11 January 2007

11 January 2007 is going to be a milestone for Bollywood movies. The world premiere of Guru will take place on Toronto's Elgin Theatre on that day. Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are the top attractions of this movie. They are expected to get married soon too. This is the first time that a Bollywood Movie had its world premiere in Toronto. Good for Bollywood movies. Canada is going to be a nice market for Bollywood movies as the people of Canada are among the richest in the world.

Guru, a highly anticipated new Bollywood film starring Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, will have its world premiere in Toronto next month, a first for the city.

Guru will debut at Toronto's historic Elgin Theatre on Jan. 11, 2007 — a day ahead of its worldwide release, Toronto officials and the film's Canadian distributor, Roger Nair Productions, announced Friday.

Rai, Bachchan and producer Bobby Bedi will be on hand for the premiere, which organizers have billed India's first mainstream international release and the first time Toronto has hosted the world premiere of an Indian film.

This is good for Bollywood movies. I am delighted mainly because I think that this matter will encourage many Bollywood directors and producers to come up with good movies. Now, they will not have to be afraid that if Indian viewers would accept their movie or not.
