Overseas: Rejected!

By Bollywood Hungama

Post LAGAAN, which was nominated for the Academy Awards, Ashutosh Gowariker’s films are keenly looked forward to in the international arena. The talented film-maker’s last release, JODHAA AKBAR, is amongst the biggest grosser of all times. But his new outing, WHAT’S YOUR RAASHEE?, has failed to attract viewers in the two major markets – U.K. and America. Released like any other big film, the film should’ve fared exceptionally well due to three key factors – [i] Ashutosh Gowariker, [ii] Solo release status and [iii] The Gujarati factor [there’s a sizable Gujarati population in these two major markets]. But, unfortunately, the response has been poor.

Weekend: September 25 – 27, 2009.
