Why It's Worth Waiting For:
There are two gigantic names involved. Santosh Sivan aka 'the God of Lighting' has his own global fan following amongst a segment of film buffs who are almost untouched by Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan of course, has a huge fan base in India and overseas and the combination of the two may just create a film that crosses boundaries and finds a new audience for Shah Rukh beyond the traditional NRI markets. Visually it is bound to be an exciting film. Plus, this will be the first time that Shah Rukh and Kareena Kapoor, who is currently the most exciting young actress, come together.
