Get ready to be Chow’d away by the spicy infusion of Bollywood and Martial Arts, at the Red Carpet European Premiere of Chandni Chowk to China at Empire Leicester Square where you will meet the current reigning king of Bollywood Akshay Kumar with Indian starlet Deepika Padukone.
Join us for an unforgettable Boll-iental night on the red carpet with traditional Bollywood Bling and Chinese Charm, as superstars Akshay Kumar and Deepika, amongst other A Listers from the mainstream and Brit-Asian film, music, sport and fashion worlds grace the red carpet.
Guests will be directed to the screen in Empire Cinema where stars Akshay and Deepika will open the film followed by the European debut screening of one of the biggest international cinematic extravaganzas of 2009.
Marking Warner Bros. Pictures’ first Bollywood production, Chandni Chowk To China will take viewers on an unforgettable journey through the historic alleys of Chandni Chowk to the grandeur of the Great Wall of China with bouts of laughter, breathtaking action, spectacular locations and heart-stirring emotions along the way.
Directed by Nikhil Advani (Kal Ho Na Ho), the film also stars veteran Mithun Chakraborty and Chinese stars Gordon Liu (Kill Bill Volume One and Two) and Roger Yuan (Chiang) (Batman Begins, Bulletproof Monk, Lethal Weapon 4). The stunts have been directed by Huen Chiu Ku whose credits include the Oscar winner Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Matrix (2 and 3) and The Mummy.
Chandni Chowk to China chronicles the lunatic adventures of a hapless simpleton cook from Delhi who is mistaken for the reincarnation of an ancient Chinese warrior. As he goes to seek his destiny, he finds himself thrown into a crazy world of megalomaniac villains, femme fatales, crazy inventors, Chinese mysticism and outlandish kung-fu assassins!
