Baabul has stormed the U.K. charts, fetching an impressive start in its opening weekend. In terms of screen average, the film is better than Rang De Basanti [£ 5,822], Humko Deewana Kar Gaye [£ 4,604], Phir Hera Pheri [£ 3,482], Krrish [£ 4,576], Lage Raho Munnabhai [£ 6,136], Don [£ 5,715] and Umrao Jaan [£ 3,487]. At the rate it's faring, Baabul should easily cross the entire business of Baghban in U.K. [£ 748,028] in a few weeks from now. In Australia, Baabul has had a good average start.
