Thunderous Start!

By Bollywood Hungama

The latest SRK starrer PAHELI has opened to an overwhelming response in U.S.A. [read details below], reaffirming the actor's supremacy in the Overseas territory. However, the film hasn't set the box-office afire in U.K. When compared to the other SRK starrers, PAHELI hasn't fetched the desired collections here. Overall, the film has grossed approx. Rs. 4.25 crores in its first three days from U.S. and U.K. alone, which is fantastic.

If PARINEETA had touched the Rs. 4 crore mark last weekend, the period film has touched the Rs. 5.25 crore mark from U.S. and U.K. after its third weekend. Excellent!

Weekend: June 24 - 26, 2005.
