The distributors of the film in UAE are so confident of the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Dilwale that their talks with the exhibitors have resulted in theatres there having thrown their online booking open.

Vox Cinemas on Sunday started advance bookings for Dilwale at all their locations in the UAE, and are at the time of writing the only UAE chain to sell Dilwale tickets. Add this to the fact that the response to the early advance booking is terrific.

Another big film English film Star War’s sixth part will be released in UAE on the same day. Tickets for Star Wars — The Force Awakens went on sale last week, breaking records in the US and UK for advance sales. They also went on sale in the UAE on Thursday.

It is quite interesting to note that without the release of poster, trailer or music, the advance booking has been opened. Also starring Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, Dilwale will hit the screens on 18 December 2015.
