Accompanying the film’s lead couple was co-star Gordon Liu, director Nikhil Advani and Amitabh Bachchan. Akshay’s charming wife, Twinkle Khanna, who accompanied him to the premieres of the film at Los Angeles, New York and Toronto, was conspicuous by her absence in London.

Deepika was dressed in a pink fairy-like dress. The drop waist dress had a scoop neckline embellished with gems, and a flowing skirt embellished with pailettes and mirror work. She was practical about the London cold than Hollywood stars are inclined to be, wearing a fur shrug to keep warm.

She accessorized with elegant diamond wave earrings. She wore intense pink eye makeup with thick eyeliner and heavy mascara, muted pink lip color, pink blush and a crystal bindi. Her dark hair was elegantly tied in a loose updo.

Akshay stepped away from his slick suits, opting for Govinda look! He wore a white dress shirt in his signature style, with the top two buttons left open and sleeves rolled up, and paired it with big black and white plaid pants. He repeated his black shoes from New York premiere but left his sun glasses home. Incredibly enough, he still managed to make a style statement!

The CCTC team has been using Akshay Kumar’s Canada based pal Ajay Virmani’s luxury seven-seater jet to travel from one premiere to another across the world. Their past stops included LA, New York and Toronto.

Chandni Chowk to China is an action-comedy about a lowly Mumbai cook who is mistaken for a martial arts hero. It’s a story inspired by Akshay Kumar’s real life.

The first ever Bollywood Kungfu comedy takes you on a madcap journey from the by-lanes of Chandni Chowk in Delhi, to Shanghai, the Great Wall and rural China and is replete with hilarious gags, breathtaking action, spectacular locations, and over the top emotions.

Distributed by Warner Bros. as their debut Bollywood film, it is due in theaters on Friday, January 16.

Made at the cost of about $8 million, the film will open on 125 screens in the United States and Canada making it the largest Bollywood release in North America, says Warner Bros. The film will release in 30 other countries at the same time.
