Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, a brand ambassador for Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways, is to premiere her latest movie in the UAE capital on September 8.

The city is set to roll out the red carpet for Kaif’s latest film, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, a romantic comedy in which she stars alongside fellow Bollywood star Imran Khan and Pakistani singer Ali Zafar.

“Everyone holds premieres in Dubai, and we wanted to be different; so, we chose the capital,” Nelson D’Souza from Yash Raj Films, the producers of the film told the Emirates 24/7
website.

The event marks the second Bollywood world premiere to be screened in the UAE capital.

The film tells the story of an upper middle-class man, played by Khan, who falls in love with his brother’s fiancée, played by Kiaf. The plot is loosely based on the Steve Carell Hollywood movie ‘Dan In Real Life’.

The invite-only event will be held at the Vox Cinemas in the UAE capital from 7pm, with a pre-event held in Abu Dhabi Mall.

‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ goes on general release in the UAE on September 8.
