The success story of English Vinglish continues overseas and is a hit in Hong Kong since its release last month.
Subtitled in Cantonese & English for Hong Kong release, Gauri Shinde’s film which stars the fabulous Sri Devi, has done approximately US $200000 Box office in Hong Kong. This makes it the second most successful Bollywood film in HK territory, with 3 Idiots being number one!
What is amazing is that film is has 29 shows a day at 7 screens in HK, which is the widest release any Indian film has ever got in HK. It has been in the Hong Kong Top Ten films chart for the past three weeks!
What’s also interesting is they are also screening the film at ‘The Directors club’ screen, which is like Red lounge and Hindi films are not released in these screens ideally. It’s great that Indian films are getting recognized and accepted worldwide for their versatility and content. English Vinglish with its universal theme has been widely appreciated.
