Aiming to bring international cinematic culture in India, Sanjay said: "I personally enjoy watching films like these, which leave you thinking about them. Such films are pure art. Our vision is to bring the culture of watching international cinema to India and celebrating it. Such films have a distinct audience and I wish this audience keeps expanding in the coming years. We are planning to release more international films in future."
