    Lage Raho Munnabhai continues to be the first choice of moviegoers for the fourth weekend in a row. The combined total from U.S. and U.K. markets in 24 days has crossed approx. Rs. 16 crores. Extra-ordinary!

    Meanwhile, Khosla Ka Ghosla, which is faring well in India [read 'Biz Talk' for details], has failed to strike a chord at the three major markets -- U.S., U.K. and Australia. However, UTV's effort of giving a theatrical release to a non-star cast film in the international market needs to be lauded!

    Weekend: September 22 - 24, 2006.
