Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (BMB) has got a fantastic reception in the key international market. The Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor starrer biopic started on a lackluster note, but has grown manifold at the overseas Box Office over the first weekend. It has topped the business chart in all foreign countries, wherever it is screened. But it has failed to beat the weekend record of Farhan's previous release Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has done superb business in key markets like USA and UEA, where it has topped the chart. In its opening weekend, the movie has collected Rs 3.88 crores ($6,47,112) from 139 screens at the USA Box Office, while it raked in Rs 2.53 crores (AED 15,52,000) at the UAE Box Office.
The Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor starrer has also topped the business chart in other key markets like UK, Australia and Fiji. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has collected Rs 80.62 lakhs (£89,348) from 56 screens in UK, Rs 71.11 lakhs (A$1,30,418) from 16 screens in Australia and Rs 1.07 lakhs (FJD 3,389) from one screen in the Fiji Box Office in the first weekend.
However, Farhan's last outing Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara starring Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol with him, had raked in Rs 12 crores nett at the overseas Box Office in its opening weekend. Whereas his latest movie has collected Rs 8.40 crores nett in the international collection centres. The performance of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is much bigger and better, when compared to the budget, star-cast and volume of release of his last outing. It shows that the actor is successful in displaying a grand show single-handedly in the international arena.
