New releases fail overseas
The two new releases, Rock On!! and Chamku, have failed to leave a mark in U.K. The opening weekend numbers are very poor. However, Rock On!! has fared better in America, although the exact numbers haven't come in yet… Last week's Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam is a supreme disaster, while the Jagmohan Mundhra-directed Shoot On Sight is a big flop as well in U.K... Singh Is Kinng is the only film that continues to gallop in U.K., U.S.A.-Canada, Middle East and Pakistan.
