Poignant Biography 'Provoked' Released In April

With an impressive international star cast including Aishwarya Rai, Miranda Richardson, Naveen Andrews, Rebecca Pidgeon, Nandita Das and Robbie Coltrane performing pivotal roles in what is anticipated to be this year’s most poignant film, Eros International plc proudly presents 'Provoked' releasing nationwide on Friday 6 April 2007 with advance previews on Thursday 5 April 2007.
Provoked is the true life depiction of Kiranjit Ahluwalia (played by Aishwarya Rai), the Asian woman who overturned the British judicial system and transformed the meaning of 'provocation' in the case of physically abused women, winning justice for women subjected to domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse.
The film is presented and distributed by Eros International plc, a globally recognised integrated media and entertainment company. Through this captivating and provocative film, Eros will redefine and propel Indian Cinema to an international stage, an objective integral to the company’s ethos and pioneering vision.
Kishore Lulla, Chairman & CEO of Eros International said: "Eros is really pleased to be involved with Provoked and use the powerful medium of film to tell a true life story of an oppressed but brave woman who changed UK case law. Domestic violence is a serious social issue that transcends race, religion, nationality and colour. We welcome people to come and support the film, and support the emancipation of women all over the world."
