After domestic box office, now Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is on a record breaking spree at the overseas box office as well.
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has completed 17-days at the overseas with $ 23.5 million (Rs 150.54 crore at current exchange rate) box office collection. The overseas box office collection is the fourth highest now as it shattered the records of Shah Rukh Khan's highest grosser "My Name Is Khan" ($23.5 million).
"#BajrangiBhaijaan Overseas total [till Sunday, 2 August]: $ 23.5 million [₹ 150.54 cr]. FABULOUS!" trade analysts Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Bajrangi Bhaijaan" overseas box office collection is higher only because the current exchange rate is Rs 63.97, while in 2010 during "My Name is Khan" release it was approximately Rs 46.
The top three positions in the overseas gross box office earners have been taken by Aamir Khan's "PK", "Dhoom 3" and "3 Idiots". However, Salman's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will soon beat the records of "3 Idiots" as it requires just Rs 6 crore to break Aamir's film record.
Meanwhile, in the top 10 international grosser list "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is Salman's first film. Salman's "Kick" is at 12th spot with $11.1 million (Rs 67.96 crore), while "Ek Tha Tiger" is at 16th position with $9.4 million (Rs 57.55 crore).
