Vineeth Sreenivasan's ​last release, ​Jacobinte Swargarajyam, is inspired from the life of a Dubai-based NRI businessman named Jacob Zacharaiah.

The film, starring Renji Panicker in the titular role of Jacob, was released on 8 April. The film, produced by Noble Babu Thomas under his banner Big Bang Entertainment, marked the third collaboration of director-actor duo Vineeth Sreenivasan and Nivin Pauly after the super success of Malarvadi Arts Club and Thattathin Marayathu.

And as expected, the superhit duo delivered a Box Office hattrick with Jacobinte Swargarajyam.

The family entertainer, which recently completed its one-month theatrical run, has raked in collections of Rs 17 crore from the Kerala Box Office.

Over 80 per cent of the film was shot in Sharjah and Dubai. Jacobinte Swargarajyam was scheduled to release in UAE on 12 May but the Nivin Pauly-starrer was moved up to 4 May to meet the public demand.

The film has been received with open arms at the UAE Box Office and is still running to packed houses, a week after its release.

There is good news for the fans of the film in the UAE. The makers of Jacobinte Swargarajyam are all set to visit Dubai to celebrate the success of the film.

Vineeth Sreenivasan, Noble Thomas, Renji Panicker, Nivin Pauly, Sreenath Bhasi, Reba John and Shaan Rahman are expected to attend the success party. Ashwin Kkumar and Aima Rosmy Sebastian, the Dubai residents who made their debut with the film, will also attend the event.

According to reports, the film's casting director and actor Dinesh Prabhakar will skip the event as he is currently attending the New York Indian film festival - where his 2015 release Lukka Chuppi is being screened.

The star-studded event, organised by Hashtag Events and Media Factory will be held at Dubai's Arabian Center Shopping Mall on 12 May between 7PM and 10PM.

Confirming the news, Nimisha Haridasan, the CEO of Hashtag Events and Hubais Abdullah, the CEO of Media Factory told Catch, "The main attraction of this event is our audience can witness both reel life family and real life family of Jacob Zacharaiah. The entire Jacob Zacharaiah family will be joined by the star cast of the film".

"The night is going to be even better with all the RJs from Hit 96.7 FM joining the stars for an interactive session with the audience. Apart from these, we are also giving an amazing send off to the mothers who had come to Dubai as "For You MOM" competition winners," the CEO said.

The star-studded event is sponsored by Renon, Sanford Electronics, Mother's Recipe, Nadumuttam: Land Of Spices, Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay Dubai, ITL World and Smart Travels. The media partner of the event is Ad Venture 360
