Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu starrer has done a wonderful collection in the first weekend. The horror film has become Emraan's biggest opener to date. Its collection is even bigger than The Dirty Picture and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.
Raaz 3 has collected Rs 64.92 lacs (£73,236) from 19 screens at the UK Box Office in its opening weekend. The Vikram directed movie has suffered a set back at the USA Box Office. The film has raked in Rs 52.84 lakhs ($95,301) from 28 screens in the first weekend of its release in the country. It has done superb collection at the Pakistan Box Office, where it has collected Rs 67.25 lakhs ($1,21,296).
Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu starrer has also done wonderful business at the Box Office in countries like Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Raaz 3 has raked in Rs. 26.79 lakhs (A$46,759) from 12 screens in Australia, Rs 12.29 lakhs (NZ$27,359) from 9 screens in New Zealand and Rs 8.56 lacs (FJD 27,598) from 2 screens in Fiji.
However, Raaz 3 has collected a total of Rs 2.32 crores nett at the foreign Box Office in the first weekend. The movie had a big potential to do even better collection. Firstly, Emraan Hashmi's films have very good demand in UAE, but Raaz 3 is missing out a huge sum from this country. Besides limited number of screens, another big reason for its average business is that it was awarded 15/R certification by censors, which kept a good chunk of the audience away from theaters.
