Salman Khan's Ek Tha Tiger rocked the Indian box office last year and now it is all set to woo fans in Japan.
Ek Tha Tiger, directed by Kabir Khan and produced by the Yash Raj Film, will be releasing in Japan today (March 7).
Kabir Khan, who is currently in Japan to promote the movie, tweeted a few hours ago: "Just got over with a packed press conference in Osaka. Happy to see the excitement in Japan about the release of EkThaTiger :-)."
Earlier Kabir, who has also directed New York in the past, wrote: "#EkThaTiger is releasing all over Japan. I will be travelling to Osaka, Kyoto & Tokyo for interviews & publicity. Looking forward to it :-)"
According to reports, the movie is being released with Japanese dubbing instead of the usual Hindi version with subtitles.
Reports further suggest that Ek Tha Tiger is the first Bollywood film to be officially released on a commercial basis in Japan.
But Dabangg Salman Khan will not be promoting the movie with director Kabir Khan since he is busy shooting for brother Sohail Khan's Mental in Dubai.
In the past only Tamil superstar Rajinikanth's movies have been released in Japan. The actor has a huge fan following in the country, ever since his first film Muthu was released in 1994.
Rajinikanth's next film Kochadaiyaan will be released in Japan and his last hit Endhiran (Robot), was a blockbuster in Japan.
Now, one will have to wait and watch if Salman Khan is able to recreate Rajinikanth's magic in Japan.
