Umrao Jaan continues to be the first choice of moviegoers in U.K. The film is holding very well here, despite three new releases -- Vivah, Apna Sapna Money Money and Rabb Ne Banaiyan Jodiean [Punjabi]. On the other hand, Vivah makes a below average debut in U.K. Ideally, this Sooraj R. Barjatya film should've opened with £ 125,000 weekend [on 30 + screens], but the £ 70,130 figure proves that the film hasn't caught the fancy of the audience here. Apna Sapna Money Money is ordinary on very few prints, although the screen average is better than Ritesh Deshmukh's solo starrer Out of Control [£ 1,310] and even Kyaa Kool Hai Hum [£ 1,027].

In Australia, Vivah is amongst the lowest openers of 2006 [above Khosla Ka Ghosla and Mannat - Punjabi] in terms of screen average.

Weekend: November 10 - 12, 2006.
