Chandni Chowk to China may have not done very well at the box office in India, but the film has netted Deepika Padukone a lot of good press in China.
Deepika has been nominated for Best Actress at the 33rd Hong Kong International Film Festival.
She is the first Indian actress to ever get this honor.

Chandni Chowk to China starred Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles with Hindi cinema veteran Mithun Chakraborty and Hong Kong action cinema veteran Gordon Liu in supporting roles.
The film was shot in China and in Bangkok, Thailand and it was distributed in the U.S. and co-produced by Warner Bros.
It was Warner Bros. first Hindi film.

The film got negative reviews by critics, but what struck me as unusual was that the fim was reviewed in the US by USA Today, Newsday, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Entertainment Weekly and the Chicago Tribune.
To me this testifies to the widening appeal of Bollywood films.
