TAJJ Media Takes Worldwide Rights to Canadian Indie 'Dr. Cabbie'

May 6th, 2013 - The Hollywood Reporter

Jeff Sackman’s TAJJ Media has picked up the worldwide rights to Dr. Cabbie, co-produced by FirstTake Entertainment, Caramel Films and Bollywood star Salman Khan's Being Human Productions.

The Canadian indie, directed by Jean-Francois Poulliot (La Grande Seduction), is shooting in Toronto.

“Dr. Cabbie is an extremely relatable, heart filled comedy drama, which audiences will relate to globally,” Sackman said in a statement Monday.

The movie about a young Indian doctor who immigrates to Canada and sets up a mobile taxi clinic to heal passengers stars Vinay Virmani, Adrianne Palicki, Kunal Nayyar and Chris Diamantopoulos.

Dr. Cabbie is co-funded by Telefilm Canada, SODEC and the Harold Greenberg Fund.

The film will be distributed in Canada by Entertainment One, while Eros International will handle the Indian sub-continent.
