Dhoom is the fastest money spinner in the Overseas territory as well. In U.S.A., the film has crossed $ 2 million in 11 days; in U.K., it's nearing £ 1 million mark; in Australia, it's speeding towards Aus. $ half-a-million mark. Converted into Indian Rupees, dhoom has touched Rs. 18.3 crores in 10 days from these three markets alone. And if you add New Zealand as well as Netherlands [opened this week], the film has crossed [gross] Rs. 18.75 crores.

If you compare the 10-day totals of 2006 biggies in the three major markets, dhoom is No. 3 in U.K. [after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and Don], No. 2 in U.S.A. [after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna] and No. 2 in Australia [after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna].

Another noteworthy aspect is that the 10-day totals of dhoom are bigger than the 10-day totals of Yash Raj's multi-starrer Veer-Zaara in U.S.A. and Australia. In fact, V-Z is leading only in U.K.

Weekend: December 1 - 3, 2006.
