Singh Is Emperor

By Bollywood Hungama

SINGH IS KINNG has fetched a fantabulous start in Overseas. The opening weekend has been historic everywhere, a close second to last year's blockbuster hit OM SHANTI OM. In U.K., the film has emerged the biggest opener of 2008, crossing RACE and JODHAA AKBAR. It is also Akshay Kumar's biggest opener to date. In America, SINGH IS KINNG has fetched an equally electrifying start. In fact, it's one of the biggest starts ever. Ditto for Australia, where the screen average is higher than even Hollywood biggies like THE DARK KNIGHT, MAMMA MIA, WANTED and new release PINEAPPLE EXPRESS. In UAE too, the film has opened to an earth-shattering response. The combined total from these 4 markets itself is close to Rs. 11 crores in just 3 days. Outstanding!
