It's a grim scenario in Overseas currently. Here's why...

  • Aishwarya Rai's second outing in Hollywood, The Mistress of Spices, has cut a sorry figure in its opening weekend in U.K.

  • The much-hyped Humko Deewana Kar Gaye has taken a huge dip in U.K. The opening weekend collections of this Akshay-Katrina prem kahani were fabulous in U.K., but the collections have registered a drastic fall in the second weekend. And that doesn't come as a surprise since the film is low on merits. The film is a flop in the U.S. market.

  • The new release, Pyare Mohan, has only added to the tally of flops in both U.K. and U.S. markets. Yet another comedy proves a tragedy at the box-office!

Any silver lining? Water, the John Abraham-Lisa Ray starrer, is having a successful run in Australia.

Weekend: April 21 - 23, 2006.

U.K. BOX-OFFICE

  • The Mistress of Spices has debuted at No. 12 position. In its opening weekend, the film has collected £ 85,563 [approx. Rs. 68.56 lacs] on 56 screens, with the per screen average working out to £ 1,528.
