Hindi film UK distributor Adlabs has joined the UK's Film Distributors' Association (FDA).

The Bollywood distributor becomes the 21st member company in the trade body.

Adlabs was founded in India in 1978 and the UK business was established 15 months ago. Its releases include Marigold, Krrish, and Dil Apna Punjabi.

Mark Batey, FDA Chief Executive, said: 'The potential for Hindi films in UK cinemas continues to rise - it's rare to find a week without a Bollywood film in the top ten - and Adlabs is committed to the further development of this important market segment. We're delighted to welcome them into FDA.'
