Karan Johar's much-awaited Kurbaan was expected to fetch a flying start in the international markets, but it didn't. The film has under-performed in the three key markets - U.K. [strictly average, due to the 15 certificate], U.S.A. [quite good] and Australia [ordinary]. The combined total from these three markets is approx. Rs. 3.50 crores. Disappointing!

Weekend: November 20 - 22, 2009.
