Overseas Box-office: Dhoom macha diya!

By Bollywood Hungama

It’s DHOOM 2 time all over. The film has embarked on a hurricane-like start everywhere, in India as well as in the

Overseas territory. Since this column is essentially about the international box-office, let’s shed light on the astounding

collections in the three major markets -- U.K., U.S.A. and Australia.

In United Kingdom, DHOOM 2 has embarked on the second biggest start of 2006, after KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA.

For Hrithik, it’s his second biggest opener after KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM and for Abhishek, again, his second

biggest after KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA.

In the United States, DHOOM 2 has fetched a stupendous start in the Thanksgiving Weekend. In fact, the fabulous

opening ranks amongst the biggest openers in the Overseas territory ever. Should we add more?

In Australia too, DHOOM 2 is the second biggest opener this year, after KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA. But when

compared to other biggies in this country, it’s marched past SALAAM | NAMASTE, which was the second biggest

opener. In New Zealand too, DHOOM 2 is in the ‘Top 10’ charts this week, occupying the No. 8 position.

Weekend: November 24 – 26, 2006.
