UTV Movies to premiere Benegal’s Welcome To Sajjanpur



MUMBAI: UTV Movies will be premiering Welcome to Sajjanpur on 1 February at 8 pm. The movie released in September 2008 and is premiering within five months of its theatrical release.

The movie is directed by Shyam Benegal and stars Shreyas Taplade and Amrita Rao.

UTV Movies business head Sameer Ganpathy says, “We are the fastest to bring the latest movies to the small screen and Welcome to Sajjanpur is just one example of our offering.”

Amrita Rao talks about working with first time directors


Amrita Rao has worked with many established film makers in the past. Sooraj Barjatya (VIVAAH), Rajkumar Santoshi (THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH), Raj Kanwar (AB KE BARAS), Indra Kumar (MASTI, PYAARE MOHAN) and Shyam Benegal (WELCOME TO SAJJAPUR) are some of the top names that she has been associated with. However, when it comes to working in a film that is being helmed by first timers, they have been far and few.

In the past there have been two such film makers – Ken Ghosh (ISHQ VISHK) and Farah Khan (MAIN HOON NAA). Both the films were quite successful at the box office. And now she returns with Ajitpal Mangat for VICTORY. One is immediately led to ask her about the criteria that she sets for herself before giving a go ahead to a project with a first time director?
