Record-breaking Indian comedy drama “Pk” will get a theatrical release in South Korea in September.
Specialty distributor Waw Pictures has announced a Sept. 3 date for the Rajkumar Hirani-directed picture fronted by Indian superstar Aamir Khan.
The Utv / Disney-backed picture was an unsurprising hit in India and normal diaspora market, but also obliterated box office records for an Indian movie in China. Released in May this year, it grossed $19.4 million. (U.K. earnings were $3.17 million, while in North America it topped $10.6 million.)

Since then, however, other titles have struggled as the novelty of Indian films pales and as exhibitors become less tolerant of two and a half hour running times. »

Shah Rukh Khan completed 23 glorious years in Bollywood yesterday. While Shah Rukh has always charmed us with his roles, persona and swaying girls' heart, on little more digging we found that there was more to the charming star. Well, it's the 'D' connection we are talking about. And no, we aren't referring otherwise, but the superstars' movies that started with the letter D that could have been the lucky aspect (as some films gave his career a new direction and made him the King of Bollywood). Go ahead and take a look at the 8 movies starting with the letter 'D' that made him Brand Srk...
What more of a co-incidence do you want? Srk's debut movie was named Deewana!
Darr gave everyone the chills and Srk got the credit of being a brilliant actor. =====================================================================================
