‘3 Idiots’, ‘My Name Is Khan’ popular in South Korea


Panaji, Nov 25: Young Woo Kim, a member of selection committee at Busan International Film Festival, says Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan’s “3 Idiots” and “My Name is Khan”, starring Shah Rukh Khan, are the most popular Indian films in South Korea.

“‘3 Idiots’ and ‘My Name is Khan’ were very popular with the viewers there. India has many languages and each language has a market for films everywhere in the world,” Kim said on the sidelines of IFFI here.

This year the opening film at the Busan Fest, one of Asia’s most popular festivals, opened with “Masaan” actor Vicky Kaushal-starrer “Zubaan”.

The 10-day event saw 14 more Indian films, from smaller projects to money-spinning blockbusters including Hansal Mehta’s much-anticipated “Aligarh”, Meghna Gulzar’s “Talvaar”, Assamese film “Kothanodi” and Sumon Ghosh’s “Peace Haven”.
