'My Name Is Khan' breaks box office record

Shahrukh's biggest opener in US

Shahrukh Khan’s latest film My Name Is Khan is turning out to be a box office dynamo not just at home but overseas as well. In its opening weekend only, the film is estimated to have raked in close to Rs. 40 crore. Only a few films in Bollywood, particularly the ones starring Aamir Khan, have managed to get such a mammoth opening at ticket windows.

In North America, the movie broke the record for the highest earning Hindi film in the opening weekend, making an estimated $ 1.86 million. The previous largest grosser in North America was SRK’s movie Om Shanti Om which had made $1.76 in 2007.

MNIK, distributed by the Fox Searchlight and directed by Karan Johar, managed an average of $15,500 from each of the 120 theatres across the United States and Canada over a three-day weekend. The maximum earning came on Saturday, but the collections dipped a bit on Sunday due to Valentine’s Day. However, Monday being a holiday in the US (President’s Day) the movie is expected to touch the $2 million mark.

Considering the sweeping reviews the film has got from critics worldwide, trade pundits are hopeful that the film might make Rs. 100 crore by the end of its first week’s run.

Surely, Shahrukh, K-Jo and Kajol must be ecstatic.
