PVR Pictures head – worldwide distribution Deepak Sharma said, “We are very excited to bring The American to Indian audiences. It is a fast-paced action thriller with a huge star cast like George Clooney in it and I am sure audiences are going to love him in this role. We are glad to have been recognized for our strong distribution network and will ensure maximum distribution spread for this movie.”

Clooney adds, “It was something that I had not had the opportunity to do before, it was about being very still, the experience was mostly about stillness, it was a very sparse script and therefore it was much more about internalizing everything.”
