Overseas: ‘Naqaab’ not big in U.K.

By Bollywood Hungama

Abbas-Mustan's latest thriller NAQAAB hasn't succeeded in attracting ample footfalls at movieplexes in U.K. Released in 30 screens, considered a wide release for a Hindi film, NAQAAB should've ideally grossed £ 100,000 + in its opening weekend, considering its solo release status, plus the hype surrounding the film. Have a look at the chart of 2007 releases [30 + screen count] below for a comparative study.

Weekend: July 13 – 15, 2007.
