Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani: Cracks U.S. Top 10 and Breaks Box Office Records in India!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ did great business worldwide and cracked the U.S. top ten at #9 this weekend with $1.3 million at the U.S. Box Office. The Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer also did great business in India where it made 19.45 Crore ( roughly $3.5 million in U.S. dollars…) in it’s first weekend with audiences no doubt flocking to screens to see the onscreen chemistry between the two former paragons.

This is the highest showing for a Bollywood film in the U.S. since last year’s ‘Jab Tak Hai‘ cracked the U.S. top ten by debuting at #8 in November 2012.  That movie was the swan song for legendary Bollywood director Yash Chopra, the so-called “King of Romance.”

Getting back to ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘, the film barely missed breaking Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg 2‘ record of 21.1 Crore (or $3.73 million dollars) but is this year’s box office champ so far in India.  The impressive showing of the film in America once again underscored the ever increasing appetite of American audiences for Bollywood fare in the U.S. Indian films in the U.S. often crack the top 20 in their debuts, but an Indian film cracking the top ten is a rarity that seems to be becoming more and more commonplace.

Hooray for Bollywood indeed!

Stars come together for Yash Chopra’s final movie

Stars gathered for the movie premiere of ‘Jab tak hai jaan’ in Mumbai’s Yash Raj studios. Everyone who is a somebody in Bollywood came out to pay a tribute to one of Bollywood’s greatest filmmakers, Yash Chopra. Even Salman Khan who’s rumored to have “beef” with Shahrukh Khan, put aside his differences and showed up to the event.  Good to see the Khans are finally growing up ;)

Bipasha Basu, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar, Shahrukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor, strike a pose for the cameras.

It’s fun to see what Bollywood’s wearing these days. Some of them have come a long way from kurta pajama and saris, thats for sure. I still feel A LOT of them could use some fashion advice and are in serious need of a stylist.
