A match made by god. Shah Rukh Khan’s single 2008 release (not counting Bhoothnath) saw Aditya Chopra make a return to the director’s chair, and launch of Anushka Sharma.
Shot in Mumbai and Amritsar with the fields and mountains of Switzerland missing, RNBDJ was released December 12th. 7 months after the commencement of shooting, and 2 weeks ahead of Ghajini.
This Bollywood rom-com saw SRK cast as the mild mannered office worker – Surinder ‘Suri’ Sahni. It is his love for his ‘Taani Partner’ – the beautiful and fun loving Taani Gupta (Anushka Sharma) that sees his transformation into the loud ‘Raj’.
Released in 1100 theatres, by the 4th week RNBDJ had earned 150 crore – making it the 6th biggest grosser of the decade.
