Chandni Chowk To China has crashed in the major international markets. The film had a 74% fall in U.K. and 80% fall in America in its second weekend. Flop... The new release, Raaz - The Mystery Continues, has done mediocre business in U.K., considering it's a 15 certificate film… Slumdog Millionaire has emerged one of the biggest success stories in U.S.A., U.K. and Australia. It's on a dream run everywhere!

Weekend: January 23 - 25, 2009.
