Here's something to cheer about! The business of Hindi films has shown an upswing of late, in both U.K. and U.S. territories. In U.K., Fanaa has crossed £ 1 million, which is one big achievement. In the U.S. too, the film is expected to touch $ 2 million by next weekend, which is fabulous. The combined total from these two markets has crossed Rs. 17.75 crores.

Also, Phir Hera Pheri is a big success in U.K., while Chup Chup Ke is rock-steady in both U.K. and U.S. territories. The John Abraham-Lisa Ray starrer Water is also having a dream run in U.S.A. And with the keenly-anticipated Krrish arriving this Friday, the Overseas territory is back on the tracks!

Weekend: June 16 - 18, 2006.
