The worldwide premieres of this film are yet to come to an end, and the film is yet to open not just nationwide but worldwide. Already Warner Bros Pictures are planning a sequel to the Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone starrer Chandni Chowk To China, their first Bollywood film which had its London premiere earlier this week.
“Warner Bros wants to make a sequel to the film” stated director Nikhil Advani, “We have signed a three film deal with Warner Bros,” When asked to describe Warner Bros production Advani explained it was an “illogical, mad film”.
The film has so far generated a cost of $9 million in just 100 days. It must be due to the jet set lifestyle being led by the cast in preparation for the films global release on January 16.
“According to the bookings, we have got the biggest opening and it will touch the figure reached by Aamir Khan’s Gajini,” Advani enthused.
The film depicts the mad-cap adventures of a cook from Delhi who is mistaken for the reincarnation of an ancient Chinese warrior. As he goes to seek his destiny, he finds himself thrown into a crazy world of megalomaniac villains, femme fatales, crazy inventors, Chinese mysticism and outlandish kung-fu assassins.
Akshay Kumar, who plays the lead role told, says “It is an easy going film. In these days of recession and stress, people can enjoy this film. My son told me, ‘Dad you look like a cartoon character in this film,’ and my grandmother told me that I look like Borat, the famous comic character.”
