Record Turnout for Kambakkht Ishq on the Opening Weekend

Bollywood film Kambakkht Ishq has broken Shah Rukh Khan starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’s record for opening day turnout, and thus, becoming the second highest grosser on the opening day ever in Bollywood. With Kambakkht Ishq, Bollywood has experienced two big hits in back to back weeks, after the release of New York last week.

Kambakkht Ishq stars some of the popular stars like Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor along with Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh, Denise Richards and Holly Valance in cameo roles. Kambakkht Ishq grossed Rs 19 crore worldwide on its opening day.

Industry specialists are predicting that Bollywood is going to see a super hit after a long time. Well, everything will depend on the interest of moviegoers. Although almost all the multiplexes as well as cinema halls experienced packed shows, there is no certainty that the movie will go on well in the coming weeks. So, let us not make any decision yet, rather we should wait and see if the movie can hold on the attention of the Bollywood fans.

Salman Khan Wants to Patch up with Shah Rukh Khan

Bollywood was divided into two parts when two of its super stars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan had a bitter clash last year at the birthday party of Katrina Kaif, the love-bird of Salman. Now, there are many indications that the cold war between the two stars could melt down very soon with Salman becoming interested to work with Shah Rukh on the screen again.

Moreover, there are a number of rumors available in the media suggesting a split up between Salman and Katrina. Bollywood rumor mills also indicate that Katrina might not invite Shah Rukh in her upcoming birthday party. This might have prompted Salman to come under a compromise with Shah Rukh because Katrina is most likely to invite Shah Rukh Khan at his birthday party. No doubt, she is currently at the peak of her career and she would not like to involve in a clash with a powerful man like Shah Rukh Khan who besides acting is now producing movies from his home production Red Chillies Entertainment.
