Salaam Namaste (Hindi: सलाम नमस्ते, Urdu: سلام نمستے, English: Urdu and Hindi greetings, respectively) is an Indian Bollywood movie released on September 9,
directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra and Yash Chopra. The film stars Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta in their fourth film together. It is about two Indians living in Melbourne,
Australia and follows one year of their lives, dealing with their problems and relationships. This was the first Bollywood film to be shot entirely in Australia. The film was one of the biggest box-office hits of 2005 in India and became the biggest hit of 2005 overseas. [1]

Many people have made cameos in the film. Abhishek Bachchan is the narrator and has a special appearance as the doctor at the end of the film. Director Siddharth Anand makes two appearances in the movie: his name is on the chalk board in the radio station (2:00 Sid Anand) and he also plays the taxi driver towards the end of the movie. Mother and son in the bookshop Saif Ali Khan's character visits are actor Arshad Warsi's real-life wife and son, Maria Goretti and Zeke. Preity Zinta's real life boyfriend, Ness Wadia makes an appearance in the film as the man reading the newspaper who Preity sits next to whilst on the bus.

The script of the film was invited to be included in the Margaret Herrick Library which is operated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. [2] Zinta received several nominations for her role in various film ceremonies, such as the Filmfare Awards,
IIFA Awards,
Star Screen Awards and Zee Cine Awards.

The tagline of the movie is "Let's get to know each other".



Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta as featured in the film

The movie is about two Indians,
Nikhil Arora, called Nick, (Saif Ali Khan) and Ambar Malhotra, called Amby, (Preity Zinta) who have left India in order to live their own lives in Melbourne,
Australia: Nick finished studying Architecture in his hometown of Ludhiana and moved to Australia, to pursue dreams of becoming a chef, and does so at a restaurant called "Nick of Time", which provides him with his laid-back lifestyle (and he can get up late in the morning); Ambar left her home due to her parent's persistence to get her married -- they are likely to introduce the entire male Indian population to her if she does not choose a suitor -- and is studying to become a surgeon. When Nikhil is supposed to do an interview for the Australia based Indian radio station "Salaam Namaste", he is late (due to oversleeping), so a war of very public words ensues with the RJ of the show, Ambar Malhotra.

After many misunderstandings, fighting and convincing, they fall in love and move in together. Soon they discover each other's tastes and distastes and rest of the movie covers how they continue their relationship, until the day Ambar discovers that she is pregnant. Despite Nick's wishes she decides to keep the baby which results in a split between the two. However, they are still forced to live in the same house for the time being. Nick realizes over time that he's still in love with her and warms up to the thought of becoming a father and marrying Ambar. It's almost too late when he finally proposes to her - Ambar gives birth to twins and the two reconcile.
