Shahrukh Khan's Ra.One has received mixed reviews from the
film critics across the world, but it has got bumper opening at the
Box Office on the first day of Diwali. According to trade analysts,
the superhero science fiction is expected to cross Rs 100 crores
mark at the collection centres in the first weekend and beat the
record of Salman Khan's Bodyguard, which had raked in Rs
85.50 crore in the five-days weekend.
Ra.One has been made with a whopping amount of Rs 175
crores, while Blockbuster movie Bodyguard was made with a
budget of Rs 42 crores. Shahrukh-Kareena starrer film has hit 3,500

of Bodyguard at Indian Box Office.

screens overseas by releasing with 904 prints in around 1,500
