Yash Raj has yet another winner on hand! As predicted, Fanaa records historic collections in its opening weekend in the three major markets -- U.S.A., U.K. and Australia. In fact, the film has overtaken the business of Yash Raj's several biggies in the three countries.

In U.K., Fanaa is next to Veer-Zaara in terms of opening weekend numbers, but is next to Mohabbatein in terms of screen average.

In U.S.A., Fanaa is next to Veer-Zaara in terms of opening weekend numbers, but crosses all biggies like Veer-Zaara, Salaam | Namaste, Bunty Aur Babli and Hum Tum in terms of screen average.

In Australia, Fanaa is next to Salaam | Namaste in terms of opening weekend numbers and screen average, but crosses biggies like Veer-Zaara and Bunty Aur Babli.
