Guess Bollywood starts having a really great time at the international box office from the recent release Bang Bang of Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif to summer release Kick of Salman Khan. Apparently, the next turn is of course for the global Bollywood hitmaker, Shah Rukh Khan with his Dewali release Happy New Year. The film is set for its release on Friday in India, North America, Australia, the UK, UAE and elsewhere. The movie reunites Shah Rukh Khan with Heist Pictures, co-star Deepika Padukone and the choreographerFarah Khan after the two box office hit Om Shanti Om and Chennai Express. At beck and call, adding to the strategy release the movie is heading up for a big Diwali Release, expecting a mass exodus of audience globally.
When the local movies in the country earns up to 90% of the market share, the Bollywood mainstream actors are so glorious that each release is an event home and abroad. Outrunning the Hollywood biggies like Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood or Adam Sandler in terms of wealth and status, Shah Rukh Khan is named as the second richest actor in the world with a net worth of $600 million.
Happy New Year is predicted to be a charismatic turn over for SRK beating all his records. It was by alk- time record breaker Dhoo3 with Kaif and Aamir Khan the records of Chennai Express were broken. Surpassing Chennai Express‘s previous record of $2.23M, Dhoom 3 opened to $3.3M in North America last December.
King Khan, huge star cast, Deepika-SRK awesome jodi, Big-Budget and extensive promotion, the buzz and the Dewali release when clubbed together there is no fault in assuming it to be a blockbuster.
