Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has done decent business in limited number of theatres at the overseas box office in its eighth weekend, taking its 52-day collection close to the mark of $30 million.

Despite clashing with many big movies, "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" kept the bells ringing in key international markets for seven weeks. The movie collected $29 million (Rs 193.39 crore) at the overseas box office in 49 days. Taran Adarsh ‏tweeted, "#BajrangiBhaijaan - Overseas - total after 7 weeks: $29 million [Rs 193.39 cr]. ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER."

Some trade analyst predicted that "Welcome Back", which was released in theatres on 4 September, would completely halt the collection of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" in the international markets. As predicted, the John Abraham starrer was successful in its screen count by 50 percent, but could not stop it from doing well in the limited number of cinema halls.

"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has registered decent amount of footfalls in cinema halls in the USA, Canada, UK and Malaysia. The Salman Khan starrer has collected approximately $29,694 (Rs 19.78 lakh) from 17 screens at the overseas box office in its eighth weekend. Its per-screen average stands at 1746. Its 52-day international total collection has reached $29.02 million (Rs 193.58 crore).
