Pleasant surprise!

By Bollywood Hungama

Given the genre of the film, SARKAR RAJ has sprung a pleasant surprise in U.K., U.S.A. and Australia. It’s the third biggest opener in U.K. this year [see chart below], though it’s quite behind JODHAA AKBAR and RACE, which grossed massive figures. However, the film has fetched a better start in America. Australia too is equally strong; it’s the fourth biggest opener here this year. The combined total from these three markets alone is approx. Rs. 5 crores.
