Sarkar Raj grosses well overseas

Subscribe to Filmibeat

Given the genre of the film, Sarkar Raj has sprung a pleasant surprise in U.K. as well as U.S.A. It's the third biggest opener in U.K. this year [see chart below], though it's quite behind Jodhaa Akbar and race, which grossed massive figures. However, the film has fetched a better start in America. The combined total from these two markets alone is approx. Rs. 4.5 crores.
