Decent opener!

By Bollywood Hungama

BILLU has done favorable business in the international markets. Of course, the presence of Shah Rukh Khan did enhance its prospects. The opening weekend is quite good in U.K. and America, but plain average in Australia. The film has touched almost Rs. 5 crores from these three markets… SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE continues to go from strength to strength in U.S. [$ 88 million], U.K. [£ 20 million] and Australia [Aus $ 11.8 million]. Superb!
