Buena Vista International and Indian Navy join hands to bring ‘The Guardian’ to India

No, it’s not the venerable British daily, but the celluloid adventure saga of two brave soldiers. Buena Vista International (BVI), a division of the Walt Disney Company has roped in the Indian Navy for the launch of this Hollywood movie. Keeping the thematic spirit of the film in mind and as part of the Indian Navy Week, the Indian Navy unfurled its banner at the Gateway of India on December 3, 2006.

Being distributed by Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) in India, ‘The Guardian’ will be hitting screens in the country next week.

Vikramjit Roy, Head of Publicity, SPE, said, “The film is about two sailors who risk their lives to save others on the sea front. The Indian Navy, which is known for its bravery, has been doing the same for the country. We, therefore, felt it most appropriate to have the Indian Navy tie up with us to launch the film as there is a complete thematic synergy involved here.”

Uday Singh, CEO, SPE Films India Ltd, said, “We are honoured to be distributing ‘The Guardian’ in India. All around the world, the members of the Navy and Coast Guard risk their lives and rush into the unknown. Now, for the first time, the spotlight is on these unsung heroes.”

Captain Abhay Lambhatte, Defence PRO, said, “It is only right that the Indian Navy associates itself with this film as it talks about bravery in the high seas.” He further said that this movie was an appropriate way to spread the message about the service and dedication that the young men and women of the Navy and Coast Guard put into their jobs every day.
