THE first Bollywood movie Table No. 21 shot entirely in Fiji has raked a worldwide gross box office earning of $F7.03million.

Confirming this in an interview yesterday, the director for Eros Pacific, one of the producers of the film Jack Raniga said Table No. 21 has been appreciated by audience for its content and entertainment with a message.

"This combined with performances by Paresh Rawal and Rajiv Khandelwal in exotic locations of Fiji and the movie has been well received," Mr Raniga said.

He said the film would be screening until today and then the screening would depend on the release traffic of new films.

Mr Raniga said the movie was released in over 1200 screens worldwide.

Meanwhile, the much anticipated film, 3G, which was also shot in Fiji will be released worldwide on March 15.

The movie, a project of EROS subsidiary Next Generation films, features Bollywood heartthrob Neil Nitin Mukesh and actress Sonal Chauhan.

Also, 40 local extras will feature in the film with several of them in speaking roles.

The film was shot in Fiji for 50 days and involved some stunts and spine-chilling sequences.

Some of the film sequences were shot at the luxurious Denarau Island, Suva, Pacific Harbour and Sigatoka Town.

The film is co-directed by Sheershak Anand and Shantanu Ray Chibber.
