Patiala House has fared well in key international markets - U.K. and U.S.A. In fact, post Housefull, which embarked on a flying start, Akshay Kumar's subsequent films [Khatta Meetha and Action Replayy mainly] had grossed dull figures in the key markets [check U.K. and U.S.A. charts below]. But Patiala House seems to be a turning point in his career. Of course, the weekend numbers aren't great when compared to what Akshay has achieved in the past, but his latest film depicts an upswing in the business of his films.
