Bollywood movie Don 2, which was released in several foreign countries, has received overwhelming response at the International Box Office during this Christmas season. The Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra starrer has smashed all the previous records by fetching approximately Rs 50.43 crore ($9.47 million) in Overseas collection centres in the first week.
Don 2, which had graced 164 screens in the US, has collected Rs 13.85 crore ($2.6 million) at American Box Office in the first week. This is the highest collection of the movie in a foreign country. Its second highest earning in a foreign land comes from Middle East, where it has grossed Rs 11.18 crore ($2.1 million).
Farhan Akthar directed film has also received good response at the UK Box Office. Don 2 has earned Rs 8.52 crore ($1.6 million) in the first week of its release. The movie has grossed Rs 3.57 crore at the collection centres in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Another whopping amount of Rs 13.31 crore ($2.5 million) is coming from its release in 30 other foreign countries.
However, Rs 50.43 crore is a highest collection for an Indian movie in the foreign countries. No other Bollywood movie has earned such a huge amount at the overseas Box Office ever. With this big collection, the film Don 2 has set a new deadline for Hindi films releasing in 2012. It should be seen if any other movie will break this record.
