Kareena Kapoor's latest movie Heroine might have failed to beat the first weekend collection record of Vidya Balan's The Dirty Picture (TDP) at the Indian Box Office. But it has shattered its international collection mark. Not only that, the Madhur Bhandarkar directed heroine-centric film has raked in double amount of what Milan Luthria's movie had collected at the overseas Box Office in its opening weekend.
The Dirty Picture, which was a medium budget movie, was released on 120 screens in different countries like the UAE, UK, North America, Mauritius, Malaysia, Singapore, Kenya, Tanzania, Indonesia, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hong Kong. The Vidya Balan starrer had raked in Rs 3.5 crore from its business in those territories in the first weekend.
Whereas Heroine has collected this amount from its screening in just two countries. The Kareena Kapoor starrer film has collected Rs. 1.32 crores (£ 1,52,826) from 51 screens at the UK Box Office in its opening weekend. It has collected Rs. 2.08 crores ($ 3,89,901) from 114 screens at the USA Box Office in the first weekend.
Heroine has raked in Rs. 2.67 crores ($ 5,00,000) at the UAE Box Office in its opening weekend. The film has collected Rs. 42.68 lakhs (A$ 77,012) from 15 screens in Australia, Rs. 6.95 lakhs (NZ$ 15,857) from 6 screens in New Zealand and Rs. 4.50 lakhs (FJD 14,970) from 2 screens in Fiji.
However, Heroine has collected a total of Rs 7.75 crores ($ 1.45 million) at the international Box Office. It has raked in Rs 25 crores at the Indian collection centres. It has scored a total of Rs 32.75 crores at the worldwide Box Office in the first weekend. But its total collection is still lesser than that of The Dirty Picture, which had raked in Rs 35.75 crores at the global Box Office in its opening weekend.
