Shah Rukh Khan may be referred to as the King Khan, but in the US it is an Aamir Khan starrer that has acquired cult status.

While SRK starrers Devdas , Veer Zaara and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham fared extremely well in the US, it is the Aamir starrer Rang De Basanti , despite its unconventional theme and treatment, has been embraced whole-heartedly by the US audience acquiring cult status.




After the fifth week, 'Rang De Basanti' has grossed a staggering USD 2 million in the US (USD 2,008,301 to be more precise and still running), beating Kal Ho Na Ho (USD 1,956,478), Main Hoon Na (USD 1,722,450) and Swades (USD 1,223,240) hollow.

In the UK, in less than four weeks, 'Rang De Basanti' had surpassed films such as Bewafaa , Black , Parineeta , Bunty Aur Babli , Garam Masala and Barsaat , that were among the biggest hits of the UK last year.

'Rang De Basanti's latest figure is an enormous GBP 760,000 and the trade is pegging it to close at around GBP 800,000. These figures are even higher than Aamir's own The Rising and Lagaan .
