Besharam has not only proved to be a dud at Indian Box Office, but also in the international market. The movie, which had more number of screens in major markets and a 5-day-extended weekend, was expected to smash the record of Ranbir Kapoor's last outing Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and set its own new benchmark. But it has collected little more than half of what the latter had scored at the overseas Box Office in its opening weekend.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani emerged the year's biggest
opener before Chennai Express. The movie had collected Rs
3.49 crores (£4,05,784) from 88 screens in the UK, Rs 8.89 crores
($15,68,677) from 162 screens in the USA, Rs 5.86 crores (AED
38,00,000) in the UAE, Rs 1.46 crores (A$2,67,920) from 17 screens
in Australia, Rs 36.33 lakhs (NZ$80,648) from 10 screens in New
Zealand and Rs 8.87 lakhs (FJD 28,895) from 2 screens in Fiji Box
Office in its first weekend.
Whereas, Besharam has collected Rs 2.46 crores (£2,48,499) from 95 screens in the UK, Rs 3.11 crores ($5,04,000) from 217 screens in the USA, Rs 4.22 crores (AED 25,16,000) in the UAE, Rs 53.82 lakhs (A$92,587) from 19 screens in Australia, Rs 17.32 lakhs (NZ$33,819) from 9 screens in New Zealand, Rs 6.25 lakhs (FJD 18,735) from 2 screens in the Fiji Box Office in its five-day-extended first weekend.
Besharam has collected approximately Rs 14.29 crores ($2.32 million) at overseas Box Office in its five-day-extended first weekend. Its collection is little more than Ranbir's previous hits like Barfi and Rockstar, but considering its screen count and number of days, its business is poorer than them. It has failed to break the record of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, which had raked in Rs 22.10 crores ($3.9 million) at the international Box Office in its three-day opening weekend.
