Herein, we present a double scoop delight to the fans of Bollywood’s Badshah with two separate news stories in one same feature. While SRK’s ‘Don 2’ is rewriting history books at the box office, in another news, he is all slated to star in a remake of a Tamil film titled ‘Ramana.’ Read more for details:
Shahrukh Khan’s recently released ‘Don 2’ has not just set the Indian box office on fire but it has broken records in faraway US as well. King Khan’s fan following has always transcended all barriers & boundaries and if the North American box office is anything to go by then certainly his followers abroad have reached a cult status. His action flick ‘Don 2’ has become the highest ever Bollywood grosser in US cash box raking in a big moolah of approx $3.3 million. It has now surpassed Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Zindagi Na Mile Dobara’ that had recently become the first ever B-town film to register over a $3 million mark on North American box office.
With $3.3 million (and still counting), ‘Don 2’ overtakes ZNMD to stamp SRK’s supremacy as Bollywood’s undisputed king in the western market. Its opening collection of $2.64 million shattered the opening record of another SRK film titled ‘My Name is Khan’ that had scooped $2.55 million in 2010.
So, as Shahrukh’s ‘Badshahat’ in US continues, here is another news that will excite his die-hard devotees. If you have been wooed by films like ‘Ghajini’ or ‘Wanted’ (both being remake of South Indian films) done respectively by Aamir Khan and Salman Khan, then you can expect another such remake, this time, featuring Shahrukh.
Grapevine has it that the ‘Ra One’ actor has given his nod to the Bollywood remake of the Tamil movie ‘Ramana’. Reportedly, renowned film maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has purchased the rights for the remake and is desirous of casting SRK & Aishwarya for the lead roles. ‘Ghajini’ director AR Murgadoss may be handling the rein of director but official confirmation & details are still awaited.
