By Glamsham EditorialAamir Khan starrer, 3 Idiots has scaled yet another height, nearly 4 years after its first theatrical release in India. Latest box-office reports from Japan indicate that the film has collected over 100 million in its first two weeks to become the top ranking Hindi film ever in Japan, in terms of collections.
The last Indian film to strike a similar chord with the Japanese audience was the 1995 Rajnikant starrer MUTHU. 3 IDIOTS is still running in the cinemas in Japan and is on its way to creating yet another box-office record in a non-traditional market. It may be noted that 3 IDIOTS previously enjoyed an unprecedented run at the box-office in Taiwan, Korea, Hong Kong and China, with the Chinese premiere Li Keqiang even mentioning his appreciation of the film while on his recent visit to India.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vindhu Vinod Chopra, the film also stars Kareena Kpaoor, Sharman Joshi, R. Madhavan and Boman Irani in Oivotal roles, which was released on 23th December, 2009.
