The Easter weekend is one of the best periods in Overseas, from the business point of view. But the new release, Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, has met with mixed reactions in this lucrative territory. This Akshay-Katrina love story has embarked on a terrific start in U.K., entering in the 'Top 10' charts in its opening weekend. But the film has failed to leave a mark in U.S.A., proving a non-starter here. In Australia too, the opening weekend figures are below the mark.

Meanwhile, Deepa Mehta's John-Abraham-Lisa Ray starrer Water has embarked on a tremendous start in Australia. The film opens in U.S.A. next week [April 28].

Weekend: April 14 - 16, 2006.

U.K. BOX-OFFICE

  • Humko Deewana Kar Gaye has debuted at No. 10 position. In its opening weekend, the film has collected £ 174,934 [approx. Rs. 1.40 crores] on 38 screens, with the per screen average working out to £ 4,604.
