EXCLUSIVE: Latest Update On Release Plans & Advance Bookings Of JAB TAK HAI JAAN & SON OF SARDAARshezad | November 8, 2012, 1:11 AM | 17 comments | 1 views
JTHJ will open on 13th November in UK, USA, Canada and UAE.
Film will open on 14th in Australia, New Zealand and other markets.
JTHJ will release in Pakistan on 16th November.
JTHJ will be the biggest overseas release in more than 600 screens(still bookings going on).
JTHJ will have shows starting from as early as 6 AM at few places due to overwhelming response to advance (i.e. Nagpur, Bangalore & Amravati). Last time this sort of thing happened for “Dabangg”.
SOS will release in 350 screens overseas.
SOS will get more multiplex screens at few places due to shorter running time (i.e. Gujarat, Punjab, Bihar) though overall JTHJ will lead the numbers.
SOS might balance the advantage of JTHJ of single screens with better plans in multiplexes.
