Heroes has a decent run overseas

Published: Friday, October 31, 2008, 9:47 [IST]

[an error occurred while processing this directive] Heroes has surprised everyone with fairly good collections in its opening weekend. In view of the fact that the major stars in the film feature in brief roles, no one was expecting the film to open well. But U.K., U.S. and Australia figures confirm that the film has found acceptance... Roadside Romeo is a failure in Overseas. The film is Yash Raj's lowest opener in U.K. and U.S.A.

Weekend: October 24 - 26, 2008.
