One of the most exciting projects to have been announced this year is the third time teaming up of the scion of the Yash Raj empire, ace director Aditya Chopra and Bollywood's global superstar Shahrukh Khan.
The last two ventures that these two power giants of Bollywood came together for were, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Mohabbatein, both of which struck gold at the ticket window. An amazing stat about the team's first venture, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is that the film is still running at Bombay's Maratha Mandir in its 645th combined week and has netted an astonishing 11.80 crores from the city (excluding Thane). DDLJ still leads King Khan's latest blockbuster, Om Shanti Om by about 30 lakhs! Amazing, isn't it?
Coming to the project which forced Shahrukh Khan to cut short his much deserved vacation (post the triumph of Chakde! India and Om Shanti Om), Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, the film is all set to go before the camera in mid-May. And contrary to speculations, no lead heroine (not even Rani Mukherjee) has been finalized and the search for a new face opposite King Khan continues.
