The lack of action on the silver screen could be attributed to the fact that the entire film industry is in the celebration mode with "Hulchul", "Veer-Zaara" and "Mughal-E-Azam" all raking in big bucks.   

With their success, 2004 is set to end on a positive note for sure, says a trade analyst. In the overseas market, "Veer-Zaara" is also well on track to emerge as the biggest Indian grosser in North America and United Kingdom. The film starring Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and a string of other veterans has amassed about $5.2 million in both territories in less than three weeks since the release.

At the way it is going, it may surpass overseas collections of "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham".
