"Dabangg 2" has again topped the box office collection chart, this time in the international market. Although, the business of the film declined after the second week at overseas box offices.
The Salman-Sonakshi starrer collected approximately ₹1.40 crore in its third weekend in overseas markets. The overall total of the film after 18 days now stands at approximately ₹47 crore internationally.
The third weekend breakup of the film is: ₹40.94 lakhs (£ 45,960) in the UK, ₹42.92 lakhs ($ 77,602) in the US, ₹24.88 lakhs (A$ 9,583) in Australia and ₹31.87 lakhs (NZ$ 6,894) in New Zealand.
"#Dabangg2 *total after 3rd Weekend* UK £ 901,462 [₹ 7.98 cr] ... USA $ 2,474,674 [Rs 13.63 cr] ... Australia A$ 578,856 [₹ 3.35 cr]," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"#Dabangg2 *total after 3rd Weekend* New Zealand NZ$ 225,835 [₹ 1.04 cr]... Overall, #Dabangg2 is a super-success in Overseas," he tweeted.
"Dabangg 2" is Arbaaz Khan's debut directorial film which was released across 450 screens abroad on December 21. The movie has been declared a superhit internationally.
The business of the action comedy film has been affected slightly in key markets by the new release "Table No. 21" starring Paresh Raawal, Rajeev Khandelwal and Tena Desae.
Meanwhile, in India, the Salman starrer raked in ₹152 crore after the third weekend. The worldwide total of the film now stands at ₹199 crore.
It requires only 1 crore to surpass the ₹200 crore mark worldwide and join the new elite club with his previous release "Ek Tha Tiger" and Aamir Khan's "3 Idiots."
