Sony BMG managing director Shridhar Subramaniam said, "With Raaz TMC begins our film collaboration with Vishesh Films, a partner we are truly proud to have in this industry. We have had a great association during the music release of Jannat as well. Now, having our most natural ally, SPE on board for the distribution of Raaz TMC has fortified our strength as we venture into Bollywood film production."
Vishesh Films chairman and MD Mukesh Bhatt added, "Raaz TMC is witness to many firsts for us. It is our first venture for a film with Sony BMG, which is a major music label. To now have SPE distribute it in the Indian market is yet again a big first. Collaboration with these international giants is a landmark for us and for Bollywood itself. I hope for a long standing association with both companies for our films henceforth."
