Overseas: ‘Guru’ is super-strong!

By Bollywood Hungama

The GURU wave continues! The film has crossed $ 1.5 million in 10 days in the U.S., which is simply remarkable. At the rate it’s faring, it should easily cross $ 2 million in the next few days. On the other hand, the film is steady in U.K. [not at par with U.S.A.], where it faces tough competition from, hold your breath, the much-in-news reality show BIG BROTHER. Yet, despite the opposition, the film grossed £ 100,000 + in its second weekend, which proves that the word of mouth is very strong.

Translated into simple terms, GURU has grossed Rs. 10 crores + in 10 days from these two markets.

Weekend: January 19 – 21, 2007.
