Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. The much-hyped film Billu is releasing today. This is not a coincidence. In fact, the makers of the film are trying to make the best use of the day. Moreover, the film is said to be a good story on friendship. Shahrukh Khan has been promoting tirelessly for it in spite of his shoulder injury. This film is set to hit the theatres today.
The film got better publicity from the controversy regarding its title than the presence of Shahrukh.

Now, the judgement day is here and the film buffs are going to see it themselves.
