Story

Around The World is a Bollywood romantic comedy released in 1967 directed by Pachhi.

It was India's first film to be released in 70mm and was extensively shot all around the world, as the title suggests. A romcom, it featured Raj Kapoor as an Indian who travels around the world on 8 dollars. The film also starred Rajshree, Ameeta, Om Prakash, and Mehmood.

The sum of 8 dollars refers to the number of dollars, or an equivalent foreign currency, that an Indian was allowed, by Government rules, to obtain by converting rupees into foreign currencies.
