Thailandīs Bangkok-Pattaya īRascalsī Appeal To India Yet Again!
- Abid           Let us know what you think about this story

If we go by past records, dussehra and especially the period after that(known as the dull pre diwali phase), is not a favourable period for releasing new releases, especially, big budget starcast films.

However, this year saw an exception as David Dhawan's Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Degn and Kangna Ranaut starrer, 'Rascals', managed to grab in excess of 7 crores last Thursday, that is on dussehra, on a day when most are busy with the festivities. In fact the extended 4-day weekend, has netted an impressive 23 crores!

Well, we are not surprised as action and comedy are the flovours of the season and additionally, 'Rascals' has been shot exclusively in Thailand's capital Bangkok and the beach city Pattaya.

The desitnation is the favourite of the makers as well as the audience as 'Ready' and 'Wanted' demonstrated. In fact almost every third Indian film (shot in the Overseas) prefers Banglok-Pattaya thanks to the friendly atmosphere, exotic locales and most importantly the low cost amenities, as compared to Europe and North America!

Before we leave, an interesting fact is that another Bangkok based film, Rajeev Khandelwal's 'Soundtrack' too has released this week, a rare occurance indeed!
