Same is the case with UK and Australia and where the movie has releases. 3 Idiots has earned 30 percent more than Ghajini which held the record for collections in the opening week. In Australia is had slowed down James Cameron's magnum opus Avatar which was made at a budget almost 80 times that of 3 Idiots. This surely is the finest hour of Aamir Khan's career.
