Akshay Kumar - Katrina Kaif starrer Singh Is Kinng has emerged as the UK's biggest blockbuster of 2008 grossing over 1.01 million pounds in the first 13 days of its release.

The film's production house claimed on Wednesday that it is Akshay's first entry into the UK's Millionaire Club. The film was released in 50 places.




'Singh Is Kinng' has also been invited for a gala presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival to be held from September 4 to 13.

"I am happy and honoured that 'Singh Is Kinng' has been invited for such a prestigious festival. It has done extremely well not only in India but abroad as well," producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah said.

He said he had received invitation for the film's presentation from the Toronto International Film Festival Group (TIFFG).

The film directed by Anees Bazmee is a romantic comedy and revolves around a gang of dreaded criminals who are transformed by a good man and his selfless love for a pretty girl.

The film is among the 20 "special" films that will be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, which will also see the premiere of Deepa Mehta 's Heaven On Earth .

Preity Zinta , Akshay, Nandita Das and Bazmee from Bollywood and former cop Kiran Bedi are among the 500 international stars and special guests who have been invited to the fest.

The festival will also feature works of Shekhar Kapoor and Mira Nair in 'New York, I Love You', which is a medley created by weaving together 12 films by internationally reputed filmmakers.

Apart from the world premiere of Mehta's 'Heaven On Earth', where Preity plays a repressed woman in Toronto, the director's 'Sam And Me' will also be showcased at the fest as part of a presentation called 'Dialogues: Talking with Pictures'.

Mehta will discuss how 'Sam and Me' helped launch her career in the early 1990s. The film is the story of Sam Cohen, a cranky older Jewish man, and Nichol, the Indian man who is hired to take care of him. It brings to the screen their warm but complex relationship across the ethnic divide.

The film festival that ends September 13 will showcase a total of 312 films.
