Farhan Akhtar-Sonam Kapoor starrer "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" is doing remarkable business in India as well as in overseas markets.
The collections of "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" were exceptionally good in key markets including US-Canada and UAE-GCC. The film opened to a slow start on the first day of its release, but gained momentum on the second day and maintained its business on the third day.
The Farhan starrer earned ₹3.88 crore on 39 screens in the first weekend at the US-Canada box office. Its UK collections were pegged at ₹80.62 lakh from 56 screens. The film fetched ₹2.53 crore in the UAE and GCC markets.
The sports biographical film was released in just one screen in Fiji, from where it minted ₹1.07 lakh. It did not release in New Zealand, which is one of the key markets for Bollywood films. Overall, the first weekend collections from overseas markets stand at ₹8.40 crore.
"Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" has performed better than the recently-released "Lootera" in overseas as well. "Lootera" had made just about ₹5 crore at the end of the second weekend, whereas "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" earned more than ₹8 crore in its opening weekend.
The intense sports drama has even grossed better than Dhanush-Sonam Kapoor starrer "Raanjhanaa", which made over ₹7.13 crore in the first week of its release
"Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" continues its dream-run in Indian markets with the film grossing more than ₹38 crore in four days. It raked in around ₹33 crore in the first weekend including Thursday's previews. The film's collections on Monday (15 July) are estimated at ₹5 crore plus.
