Renowned Bollywood film; Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, specially selected for the event, was released 21 years ago and raked in approximately 1.7 Billion rupees. Suitable for a wide range of audiences, the vibrant smash hit film tells the love story of two college friends, Rahul and Anjeli played by iconic Bollywood stars, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. The outdoor cinema event is sponsored by Sony Entertainment Television, and is in partnership with Boxpark Wembley, Southside BID and Birmingham Hippodrome, as well as radio partner, Sunrise Radio. Jiten Anand, Director of An Indian Summer, said:

This year’s outdoor cinema is incredibly exciting because it’s never been done on this scale before. We see the event as a big step forward with what An Indian Summer will be producing in the future, in terms of pioneering work across the UK. We are also looking forward to sharing our Bollywood outdoor cinema with new national audiences.
