Dasavathaaram fetches superb start overseas

Published: Thursday, June 19, 2008, 11:49 [IST]

[an error occurred while processing this directive]Mere Baap Pehle Aap has had a mediocre start in U.K. In view of the fact that the film was released on 30 + screens, it should've ideally grossed £ 1,50,000 + in its opening weekend [incl. previews on Thursday night]... Summer 2007 is a debacle in U.K.; the opening weekend numbers are pathetic... Dasavathaaram [Tamil film] has fetched a superb start in U.K., surpassing all Hindi films running there... Sarkar Raj has dropped drastically in the three major markets -- U.K. [drop: 72%], U.S.A. [drop: 73.8%] and Australia [drop: 75.1%].
