Singh Is Kinng
Singh Is Kinng continues to be the first choice for the third week in a row. The film is unstoppable in U.K. and America. The 17-day total from these two markets alone is a staggering Rs. 19 crores [approx.]. In U.K., by the time you read this report, the film would have crossed a smashing £ 1.2 million, throwing up serious competition to erstwhile blockbusters like Om Shanti Om and Dhoom 2. Studio 18 gets the credit for giving Akshay Kumar his two biggest U.K. hits ever within eight months of each other - Welcome and Singh Is Kinng... Maan Gaye Mughall E Azam is a supreme disaster. It ranks amongst the lowest openers of the year in U.K... Crossover film Shoot On Sight [English], directed by Jag Mundhra and starring Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri, besides other international actors, is disappointing in its opening weekend.
