Yash Raj Films releases Black in Korea across 180 screens

    MUMBAI: In its endeavor to open new markets for Indian cinema, Yash Raj Films has released Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Black starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukerji in Korea.

    The movie, which was released in 2005, was distributed overseas by Yash Raj Films.

    Black, the story of Michelle McNally who saw what other lesser mortals could not, was released in Korea last Friday across 180 screens. This has been one of the biggest releases for a non-Korean or Hollywood film. According to YRF, Black had the highest opening among new releases ahead of Hollywood releases. The movie debuted at third spot while Take-Off and Haeundae took the first two spots given they are Korean blockbusters with massive budget and marketing.
