Peepli Live has fetched an admirable start in the international markets as well. The rural theme would generally act as a deterrent with the videshi junta, but Peepli Live has overcome the barrier and fetched a flying start in U.S., Gulf [Thursday US $ 64,690 and Friday US $ 71,820 from 18 theatres] and Australia [the film hasn't released in U.K.].

Weekend: August 13 - 15, 2010.
