Overseas: Rockstar Below The Mark, Ra.One In Top Five Of All Time
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network
Rockstar was below the mark in overseas as it collected around $1.65 million from all overseas markets. Last year Anjaana Anjaani opened to around $1.6 million and Rockstar is a much bigger film. The figures from major markets for the weekend are as follows.
United Kingdom -185,000
North America – $612,000
UAE – $370,000
Australia – $100,000
Ra.One has collected $8.6 million till date and will be released in a few other markets soon. The collections are huge if we look at the Hindi film market but not so great considering Shahrukh Khan’s clout in overseas. It is already the fifth highest grossing film in the overseas market and the Shahrukh dominance in Overseas can be seen by the fact that he has the four of the top five grossers and seven out of the top ten grossers.
The only non Shahrukh Khan starrers in the top ten grossers overseas are Three Idiots, Dhoom 2 and Bodyguard.
