Shahid Kapur – Vidya Balan starrer Kismat Konnection will open across 920 screens worldwide, including Pakistan, today.
It will open across 720 screens in India and 200 in the overseas market, which includes UK, USA, Middle East, Australia and Pakistan.
The movie will have a simultaneous Pakistan release as earlier Bollywood films were released there but a week or two later after they hit the screens in India.
Touted as the biggest ever Shahid release, ‘Kismat Konnection’ was premiered in Dubai at the ‘Grand Cineplex’ Wednesday.
The love story, which centres around Raj Malhotra (Shahid), a street-smart charming guy but despite his best efforts success eludes him. Raj’s luck changes when he meets an enigmatic fortune-teller played by Juhi Chawla , who assures him that he is about to get lucky with a new chance.
Deviating from his signature pair of Shahrukh Khan and Juhi, veteran director Aziz Mirza has roped in Shahid and Vidya.
The director hopes that Vidya and Shahid will make it to the list of successful Bollywood reel-couple.
But it seems Mirza’s favourite pair of SRK-Juhi are indispensable for his movies. In ‘Kismat Konnection’, Juhi plays the role of Haseena Banu Jaan, a crystal ball reader while King Khan, who is also a very dear friend of Mirza has given his voice-over to this film.
