Don , that stars Shah Rukh Khan in the title role, has notched highest ever Diwali opening in UK, UAE.

It may have evoked mixed reviews at home but Farhan's Akhtar 's remake of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Don (1978) has rocked the overseas box office, notching up the highest ever Diwali opening for a Bollywood film in countries like the United Kingdom.



The film, which opened in the United Kingdom on October 19, a day before it released across India, grossed an outstanding 288,000 pounds(Rs 20 lakh) in its opening weekend in the United Kingdom.

Infact, sources in the UTV, the overseas distributor of the film, said the film had grossed over million dollars from 74 engagements across the UK in its opening week.

Seems like it is the 'King Khan' magic on show again on the overseas terrain!
