UTV Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions have licensed the political satire Peepli Live to Vivarto SP ZOO in Poland.

Khan produced and Anusha Rizvi makes her feature directorial debut on the story of a poor farmer who announces he will kill himself so his family can benefit from a controversial compensation scheme.

Peeple Live screened out of competition in Berlin and received a rapturous reception at its world premiere at Sundance last month.

Peepli Live is a truly emotional film and it starts our trip with Indian movies that will open new horizons and develop our company to proceed with many more,” Vivarto’s Justyna Troszczynska said.

“Vivarto is an ideal distribution partner for a film like Peepli Live and we are looking forward to the theatrical release of the film in Poland,” Amrita Pandey, UTV’s vice-president of international distribution and syndication, said.
