Directed by Luc Besson, the movie will release in India on July 28, a week after its worldwide release.
Kamal Gianchandani, CEO, PVR Pictures, says they are dubbing the movie in three Indian languages to widen its reach.
"We have seen the movie and are in awe with the magic that Luc Besson has created on screen. A movie of this scale warrants for a huge release, hence the decision to release it in around 1,000 screens," Gianchandani said in a statement.
