Overseas: Boom time!

By Bollywood Hungama

It’s boom time in Overseas as the two new releases -- BHOOL BHULAIYAA and LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG -- have opened to a big response in the international markets. In U.K., BHOOL BHULAIYAA has emerged the biggest opener of 2007, while the U.S. opening weekend collections rank amongst the biggest. In Australia, however, the film is average.

LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG has fared well in U.K., but is lower-than-anticipated in U.S. [when compared to other Yash Raj biggies]. Overall, the Idd weekend proved bountiful for the industry!

Weekend: October 12 – 14, 2007.
