But why just three songs and why not the rest, like how Ashutosh Gowariker did for Jodhaa Akbar? Nikhil defends his decision stating, "There should be something withheld for the film too."
The action comedy, was first titled, Made In China but after the Kal Ho Naa Ho maker went for a recce trip to China to finalise his locations, he came back and re-titled it to Chandni Chowk To China. The film also stars Deepika Padukone (in a dual role) and Ranvir Shorey. It is due for release on 16th January 2009. Incidentally, the song screening was earlier scheduled to take place on 2nd December and the invitation cards too had been sent out. But the event has been postponed by a week due to the tension prevailing in the city after the terrorist attacks in South Bombay.
