Dulha Mil Gaya
, which was partly filmed in Trinidad and Tobago, is now running to packed houses in several parts of the country.
The Bollywood movie opened here on Wednesday. The scenes shot in Trinidad and Tobago ensured good participation not only from Indians, but other ethnic groups as well.
Anthony Maharaj, executive producer of the movie, said that the opportunity to produce Dulha Mil Gaya came from Maniedeo Persad, Trinidad and Tobago's High Commissioner to India and Hindi film producer Vivek Vaswani.
Maharaj told the media that producing the movie was a great opportunity for the country in which 44 percent of the population has its origins from two states in India - Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
During 1845-1917, the Indians were brought here to work on the sugar and cocoa plantations and their children now constitute 44 percent of the total population of 1.3 million people.
Maharaj, who has distributed Indian films here since the 1940s, said to link up for this movie was an emotional moment.
Dulha Mil Gaya did not do well at the Indian box office, but is expected to be acreened here for several weeks.
