THE first Bollywood movie entirely shot in Fiji will be released worldwide on January 4 next year.

The official trailer of the psychological thriller Table No 21 directed by Aditya Datt, featuring model turned actress Tena Desae with Rajeev Khandelwal and Paresh Rawal is out.

In an interview, Fiji Films chief executive officer Florence Swamy said the trailer was really amazing and the locations in Fiji had been showcased at its best.

"The movie will showcase to the rest of the world that Fiji is not only a tourist destination but a production destination as well," Mrs Swamy said.

She said with the release of the film soon, it clearly showed that the financial schemes and government rebates on film production were working.

Mrs Swamy said they were working closely with the production house and other stakeholders to hold special screenings of the film in the country.

The movie will also feature about 1000 locals.

Table No 21 is a story based on the lead actor and actress coming to Fiji where they played a mind game.

The movie is a twisted tale about a couple — the lead actor and actress —out on a lavish holiday to Fiji and how they end up on the Table No 21 sitting across a mysterious man where they are asked questions and if they lied, they die.

The theme song of the film 'If You Lie, You Die' has been choreographed by Remo D'Souza.

The film will be released by Eros International.
