Mary Aloe and The Aloe Entertainment Team to Produce TIGER This Summer in Canada

It doesn’t take a Bollywood-style movie to crossover to the Indian or Western audiences. Films like “The Hundred Foot Journey” or “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” do very well globally. Multi and cross-cultural creative talent and crews bring stories about India and Indians to the world, continuing a trend of diversity and success.

Mary Aloe and the Aloe Entertainment team, along with Mass Hysteria Entertainment are producing such a film, TIGER. Directed by Alister Grierson (SANCTUM), this movie is inspired by the true story of Pardeep Nagra, an Indian boxer who was banned from the sport for refusing to back down from his beliefs. As a consequence, his legacy will be forever tied to his two biggest battles: the one in the courtroom and the other in the ring.

With a large Indian-based population in the United States, Vancouver, South Africa, Australia, and London, crossing the cultural line is, in fact, all about a great story. Whether it is Deepa Mehta’s “Water” setting a precedent in the crossing of geographic and cinematic boundaries or Danny Boyle’s “Slumdog Millionaire”, which won critical and popular acclaim throughout the world; the Oscars and other awards organizations, as well as the box office, have taken note and learned how to market and distribute these great stories of India and Indian life for international audiences.

Mary Aloe and the Aloe Entertainment team are proud to be a part of this trend, knowing that it will surpass any novelty stage and, especially with TIGER, bring more hybrid cinema to the world. Themes, like the ones found in TIGER, of individual triumphs, good people winning in the end, hard work, and savvy, are richly rewarded in the crossover audience by their popularity, critical acclaim, and box office, Movie history is gradually filling with these great stories and cross-cultural productions, and it is the better for it.
