Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' rocks US and UK box-office

The 'youthful and halcyon charm of college life' in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na has triumphed over the glitz and dazzle of 'a futuristic saga' in Love Story 2050 and the 'angelic tale' of Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic at the overseas box-office.

Rising on the 'natural screen presence' of the youthful pair of debutant Imran Khan and pretty Genelia D'Souza , Abbas Tyrewala 's 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' has opened to an overwhelming response in the overseas markets, especially the US and the United Kingdom, pipping the much hyped 'Love Story 2050' and 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic', sources in UTV Motion Pictures, the overseas distributors of the film, said.




Being produced by Aamir Khan productions, 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na', which marks the debut of Aamir's nephew Imran, netted excellent returns in the US, UK, Australia and the Gulf, UTV sources said.

In the North American market, 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na', which released worldwide on July 4, grossed 2,00,000 US Dollars on 38 prints till Sunday night, more than 'Love Story 2050' and 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda magic' which opened with a higher number of prints.

In comparison to the gross earning of 200,000 US Dollars by 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na', the Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja starrer 'Love Story 2050' earned 76000 US Dollars in its opening weekend from 66 prints, while 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic' earned 180,000 US dollars from 84 prints, UTV sources said.

The sources said the box office figures of 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' were fabulous considering that last year's superhit Jab We Met earned 3,00,000 US dollars during its entire run in the US.

In the United Kingdom, 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' earned 57120 US Dollars from just 13 prints. In comparison, 'Love Story 2050' earned just a marginally higher 60000 US Dollars from 36 prints.

In the Gulf markets, the Imran Khan-starrer earned 177,000 US dollars from just 15 prints till Sunday night, higher than 167,000 US dollars grossed by 'Love Story 2050' which opened with 25 prints, ten more than 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na'.

The Yashraj Films production 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic' earned 229,500 US Dollars in its opening weekend in Gulf on a higher number of 32 prints.

Incidentally, Taare Zameen Par , another overseas release by UTV Motion Pictures, had last year grossed 258,000 US Dollars on 25 prints in the Gulf in its opening weekend.

In Australia too, 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' opened to an excellent response, earning 30,427 US Dollars from 6 prints in the opening weekend, beating 'Love Story 2050' which grossed 21, 423 US dollars in its opening weekend from 11 prints.

Though 'Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic' grossed a higher figure of 36000 US Dollars in its opening weekend in Australia, it was from a higher number of ten prints, which means 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' had a better per screen average.

The excellent box-office figures for 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' comes even as the film, featuring Imran and Genelia in the lead and others like Manjari Fadnis in key roles, has opened to a fabulous response all over India.

The overseas success of 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' is another feather in the cap for UTV Motion pictures, who have earlier successfully distributed films like The Namesake , 'Taare Zameen Par', Race and 'The Happening' in the overseas markets.
