Shrugging off the trauma of three days of terror, it's a return to normalcy and 'never–say die' spirit for Mumbai. And so is for our Bollywood. Makers of Chandni Chowk To China held a grand Music launch event for the film on 9th December (which was earlier planned for 2nd December but due to the city's shocking events, no one from the unit had any inclination to go ahead with the event).
The event showcased a theatrical promo followed by 3 songs from the film. And looking at the visuals, must say the film definitely promises to be one of the biggest films of year 2009 and a worthy one to watch out for. So all those curious people out there let us tell you why Chandni Chowk To China is so appealing.
Akshay Kumar described Chandni Chowk To China as an international film which showcases Kung fu in Bollywood for the very first time. Martial arts has been given utmost importance in the film which no other Hindi film has explored yet.
The film is touted to be partially based on Akshay's real life journey before becoming an actor. Very few must be aware that Akshay was born in Chandni Chowk of Delhi city and went on to become a Chef in Bangkok (and also studied martial arts) before stepping into Bollywood which is quite similar to his character Siddhu's life in the film who happens to be Chandni Chowk's halwai and travels to China where he learns Kung–Fu.
Bollywood's most sought after actress Deepika Padukone will be once again seen in a double role after Om Shanti Om. She is playing an Indian girl and a Chinese bold & sexy lass in Chandni Chowk To China. This is the first time Deepika had her tryst with action. And she will be seen doing some amazing daredevil stunts.
Chandni Chowk To China is Bollywood's first film shot at the 'Great Wall of China'. According to Akshay not even a Hollywood film has been shot there. Moreover Akshay will be seen sharing screen space with actor Sir Gordan Liu who introduced Kung Fu to big screen several years ago.
This would be the first Bollywood film which explores Chinese customs and civilization. The music and songs of the film are so very apt with perfect Chinese punch to it. It pays tribute to our abiding love for everything Chinese. Even Bappi Lahiri's remake song 'India se aaya mera dost' starts off in Chinese.
