Shahrukh Khan The one-man box office dynamo called Shahrukh Khan has worked his charm halfway across the world with a successful opening of his latest film in North America.

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi may have had an average opening in India but the movie raked in a powerful estimated gross of $1.2 million in just three days at the North American box office.

The film, directed by Aditya Chopra , is the third such pairing between Shahrukh and Aditya after Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995) and Mohabbatein (2000), with the star proving once again that his box office appeal is still as strong as ever.




In 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi', Shahrukh plays a common man who comes up with a plot to win over his unloving young wife ( Anushka Sharma ). Well, he certainly appears to be winning over audiences abroad as experts believe that the film must have easily grossed over $3.5 million in three days outside India.

In North America, 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' is playing on 105 screens and took the 15th spot on the box office chart in its opening week, whilst the number one slot was held by Keanu Reeves with a remake of 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', which grossed $31 million in over than 3500 theatres.

We'll pick Shahrukh over Keanu anytime, anywhere!
