Bountiful weekend!

By Bollywood Hungama

Karan Johar has established, yet again, that he's a brand to reckon with in the Overseas territory as well. DOSTANA has fetched a staggering start in U.K. In terms of screen average, it's the third biggest opener of 2008, after RACE [£ 9,941] and SINGH IS KINNG [£ 9,866]. Bigger than JODHAA AKBAR [£ 7,907]. In America too, it's amongst the biggest openers of this year. Ditto for Australia and Middle East... SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, an international film starring Indian actors Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan, has fetched a fantabulous start in America.
