Dabangg Mania Grips The World

@sudhir_asb asked me: "How do u explain tat a movie like dabang which is based in rural India is doing so well in d overseas market?". I said "I am speechless". But to be honest I always had this inkling that Dabangg will do well overseas. Why? We covered the Audio Launch of Dabangg Live and it was watched in 67 countries. I knew there's enough craze for Salman and his movies overseas. People in countries like Tunisia, Tanzania and an island in South Korea, had watched that live webcast. Post release of Dabangg I've been getting some interesting updates from many of Bollywood fans from across the globe. I am assembling a few of them here (it includes a few comments from users in India as well) to give you an idea what Dabangg mania is all about as of now.
