‘Couples Retreat’, Oscar winner musician A.R. Rahman’s first venture into mainstream Hollywood, has reportedly crossed the 100 million dollar mark at North American box office.

This about 113 minutes comedy, which was released worldwide starting October eight in Australia and New Zealand and October nine in USA, has reportedly grossed over 102 million dollars domestically besides over 20 million dollars overseas.

Shot in Tahiti (French Polynesia) and USA, it revolves around four couples who go to a tropical-island resort for vacationing.

It is yet to be released in many countries.

Acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that it proved that Hollywood-Bollywood marriage could bring desired results at box office also.

Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation, hoped that more creative-technical-financial alliances would be formed between Hollywood and Bollywood in the coming future.

Rahman provided original music for ‘Couples Retreat’, besides writing and performing two songs: ‘Na Na’ and ‘Sajna’. Rahman’s son A. R. Ameen also sang in ‘Na Na’.

Directed by Emmy nominated Peter Billingsley (Dinner for Five), it stars MTV winner Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers), Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Golden Globe nominated Kristin Davis (Sex and the City), etc. Producers were Vince Vaughn and Scott Stuber (Role Models).

Well known American filmmaker Brett Ratner (Red Dragon) is “editing” English version of Bollywood blockbuster ‘Kites’ to fit in the Western psyche, according to reports.

It may be the first for a Hollywood director formatting a Bollywood movie.

Reports suggest that intercultural romance thriller ‘Kites’ has two versions—one for domestic Indian audience and another English version for international audiences.

While the domestic version has been completed, the international version is still being formatted.

The two versions were reportedly shot simultaneously in Hindi and English in Las Vegas (Nevada), New Mexico, and Los Angeles (California) in USA.

Acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, welcomed Hollywood and Bollywood coming together, sharing resources on various creative and technical aspects of filmmaking.

Since these world’s biggest moviemaking centres controlled the psyche of a large populace of the world, this might result in world coming closer, said Zed.

Directed by Filmfare winner Anurag Basu, produced by Rakesh Roshan, with music by Rajesh Roshan, the bi-lingual Salsa dance based ‘Kites’ is said to be a love story that defies boundaries-cultures-rules-barriers-language.

Proposed to be released next summer worldwide, it stars Filmfare winner Hrithik Roshan, Uruguay born Mexican actress-model MTV winner Barbara Mori, Kangana Ranaut, Nicholas Brown, Kabir Bedi, etc.

Sir Elton John is back in the limelight after undergoing treatment in hospital for flu and E.coli.

John, 62, who made his first public appearance since the illness, looked a picture of health as he walked the red carpet in New York for his annual Aids Foundation benefit.

“It’s the first time I’ve been in bed for about nine days in the whole of my life,” Sky News quoted him as revealing at the charity event.

“Except for maybe when I had my tonsils out.

“So, I was alright. I had a good rest. I didn’t expect it,” he said.

John went on to admit that he hated letting his fans down after he was forced to cancel a series of gigs on his world tour after falling ill.

“The worst thing was having to cancel shows. I hate that. But I’m back on my feet and I’m bouncing around now,” he added.

The Elton John Aids Foundation helps to fund HIV prevention programmes and aims to eliminate stigma and discrimination associated with the disease.
