Excellent info mam, no thanks.
You know I contacted my name is khan's production (Dharma-production), RNIB 
and 20th Century International fox for info on audio DVD of the film, but 
couldn't get any response except from RNIB export officer that I have no 
info regarding this.
However I had word with marketing person of MNIK (Dharma Productions) Mr. 
Sidhaarth and he gave me some contact number of a person who is in Dadar but 
he cell was out of service.
So in such situation this is excellent info. I am curious to get dvds.
Amar Jain.
