A single swallow will not make the spring come faster. But this news is encouraging (from Dawn):
“Jab Tak Hai Jaan (Till My Last Breath),”a three-hour extravaganza which was the last film made by legendary Indian filmmaker Yash Chopra, the “king of romance,” before he died last month.
The movie entered the top 10 at number 8, taking $1.3 million at the box office, a rare appearance for a Bollywood film in box office rankings usually dominated by Hollywood productions. “It is very rare indeed for a Bollywood film to make the Top 10,” said Exhibitor Relations expert Jeff Bock, while noting that they “routinely” make it into the top 20.
“Bollywood does have a very loyal following in the US as almost every week there is a new Bollywood film in limited release, and every now and then they do open in the top 10,” he told AFP.
Yash Chopra must be smiling in his sleep.
