The film is scheduled to hit the theatre on Oct. 5. The Hindi, Telugu and Tamil versions will be released simultaneously.
While Ajith Kumar plays a cameo in the Tamil version of the film, Amitabh Bachchan has played the same cameo role in the Hindi Version.
"English Vinglish" had a gala premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film on Sep. 14, ahead of its worldwide release.
The film directed by debutante Gauri Shinde is about a Maharashtrian housewife (played by Sridevi) who registers herself for English speaking classes in order to make her husband and family happy.
It was reported that megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who made a guest appearance in the Hindi version, got emotional after watching the film.
"A viewing of English Vinglish directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R Balki tonight, leaves me with collective lumps in the throat and a surge of flushed eyes near the tear ducts. And it is not all the emotion of a particular moment that puts one in such state. It is the uncontrollable effect of appreciation that prevents one from expressing any at all," Bachchan wrote on his blog.
