Punjabi Film Overtakes Biggies!

By Bollywood Hungama

It was meant to be a clash of two multi-starrers, ELAAN and INSAN. Instead, a Punjabi film, starring Gurdas Maan and Juhi Chawla, overtook the two biggies in U.K. That's the sheer beauty of this business - it's simply unpredictable.
In U.S.A., VEER-ZAARA is nearing the $ 3 million mark!
