UK is the territory which is not growing for Hindi films.. Dhoom 3 broke record of 7 years Old Kabhie Alvida Naa Kehna last Weekend and Last Thursday Movie left behind highest grosser My Name Is Khan and collected 90lac $ approx this Weekend to extend its lead at number one..
This territory was most toughest one as old records of Kabhie Alvida Naa Kehna, Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham and Veer Zaara were never broken or even approached. Only movie that reached or crossed them was My Name Is Khan. Now this year Shahrukh’s Chennai Express got closer but couldn’t cross them, interestingly all these are Shahrukh starter. So this territory was most difficult to conquer, expected movie was any Shahrukh starter but it’s Dhoom 3 which not only reached but crossed these old barriers. Below are top 5 Grossers in UK..
Dhoom 3* (2013).. 4.31m $
My Name Is Khan (2010).. 4.2m $
Kabhie Alvida Naa Kehna (2006).. 3.9m $
Veer Zaara (2004).. 3.74m $
Chennai Express (2013).. 3.38m $
