Naachle London - the UK Bollywood Film of 2011!

The soundtrack of this Hindi film from UK production company Aviary Films is releasing in the UK today. Aviary and PVR aim to release the film in the UK and India in late January 2012.

USP of the Film

Arguably the first Hindi language film set for a mainstream Bollywood release that was created entirely in the UK. The script-writers, the music composer, the lyricist, the singers, the dancers, the actors, the crew, the cinematographer, the editor - everyone was UK based.

Genre and Log-line

This is a feel-good uplifting family romantic comedy drama about two single parents finding love the second time round when their children attend a Bollywood dance class in West London.


Sofia Hayat - 'Diary of a Butterfly'- alongside Udita Gaswami.

Raj Ghatak - BAFTA nominated for 'Bombay Dreams' in the West End.

Kulvinder Ghir - from the BBC's iconic 'Goodness Gracious Me'.

Fagun Thakrar - 'Bhopal - A Prayer for Rain' - alongside Martin Sheen, Mischa Barton and Kal Penn.

Jake Canuso - The loveable 'Mateo' in ITV's 'Benidorm'.

Harvey Virdi - UK actress who appeared in 'Bend It Like Beckham' and 'Bride and Prejudice'.

Neil D'Souza - Renowned UK actor and Playwright.

Behind the Camera

A multi-cultural mix of British Asian, White British and UK resident Indian nationals.

Music Team

The music team was led by composer/ music producer Jayanta Pathak and included an eclectic mix of British-Asian musicians including classically-trained singers Unnati Dasgupta, Priyesh Khanna, Abhi Nair, 70 year-old Managl Singh (who dueted with the legendary Mohd. Rafi) and 15 year-old prodigy Amanjhot Sangha, as well as British singer Ferrara Symone.

The Music Videos are now airing on Zing (Sky Channel 789)

About PVR Pictures

PVR Group is among India's leading integrated media & entertainment players with a significant presence in film entertainment (film production, distribution and exhibition) and retail entertainment landscape.

Said Kamal Gianchandani - CEO, PVR Pictures "we are really excited about partnering Aviary Films on 'Naachle London'. We have known the film's producer / director Neville Raschid since the mid 1990s when he was with Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with him as a Bollywood film maker."
