Mumbai: Eros Pictures, the film production arm of Eros International, has entered into a co-production venture with Sohail Khan Production.
While any specific project has not been formalized as yet, the announcement signals that the two companies will be working together to co-produce films in the near future.
Eros International and Sohail Khan Production have worked in the past on the distribution of other releases like Partner, I Proud to be Indian etc. Last year, post Partner release there was a buzz that Sohail Khan had differences with Eros due to non accountability of overflow of Partner’s profits. But now that Eros is also releasing the Salman-Sohail multi-starrer Heroes worldwide on 24 October, the intent of the two companies to work together is evident.
Commenting on the development Eros International India president Sunil Lulla said, "We are excited about tying up with Sohail with whom we enjoyed the huge success of Partner last year. With this tie-up, audiences will naturally have higher expectations and we are looking forward to presenting some more wholesome entertainment to audiences".
"Sohail Khan Production and Eros enjoy a special relationship and I am happy to join hands with Eros who undisputedly have the best global marketing and distribution infrastructure. Aligning with them, we hope to recreate the phenomenal success of Partner and present some exciting cinema on a global platform", added Sohail.
Meanwhile Sohail Khan Production is also co-producing movies with UTV- Main Aur Mrs. Khanna which stars Salman, Sohail and Kareena Kapoor and Kisaan which will star Sohail and Arbaaz.
