Bollywood movie Don 2, which was released in several
foreign countries, has received overwhelming response at the
International Box Office during this Christmas season. The Shahrukh
Khan and Priyanka Chopra starrer has smashed all the previous
records by fetching approximately Rs 50.43 crore ($9.47 million) in
Overseas collection centres in the first week.
Don 2, which had graced 164 screens in the US, has
collected Rs 13.85 crore ($2.6 million) at American Box Office in
the first week. This is the highest collection of the movie in a
foreign country. Its second highest earning in a foreign land comes
from Middle East, where it has grossed Rs 11.18 crore ($2.1
Farhan Akthar directed film has also received good response at
the UK Box Office. Don 2 has earned Rs 8.52 crore ($1.6
million) in the first week of its release. The movie has grossed Rs
3.57 crore at the collection centres in Australia, New Zealand and
Fiji. Another whopping amount of Rs 13.31 crore ($2.5 million) is
coming from its release in 30 other foreign countries.
However, Rs 50.43 crore is a highest collection for an Indian
movie in the foreign countries. No other Bollywood movie has earned
such a huge amount at the overseas Box Office ever. With this big
collection, the film Don 2 has set a new deadline for
Hindi films releasing in 2012. It should be seen if any other movie
will break this record.
