    I love this film for Shah Rukh! Being from the US, I have a difficult time with how they move around from place to place and the places are not even connected!! Oh, well, it is Bollywood and I have to let go of reality. I keep telling myself that. I love watching their relationship develop chukpe chukpe!!

    yeah, thats true
    only way to connect how they get from india to vegas is because they live there?

    i was just reading this, cant believe i missed it but damn...i didnt know all those things. Mysore is where my family (dad's side) is from and its beautiful!!! and the title being conceived before Khalnayak? damn thats old!!!

    but Pardes suits the plot so much more than "ganga"
