Sajid Khan's action comedy film "Himmatwala", which bombed at the Indian box office, still manages to make some money in the international market.

Despite strong competition from films like "Chashme Baddoor", "Nautanki Saala" and "Ek Thi Daayan", the film is still running in overseas theatres in its fourth week.

The Ajay Devgn-Tamannah starrer is running at two screens in the UK and one screen in North America.

In its fourth weekend, "Chashme Baddoor" collected ₹7,207 ($133) from North America and ₹2,483 (£ 30) from the UK box office.

The film minted ₹1.82 crore (£ 2,21,336 ) from the UK and ₹1.47 crore ($ 2,70,880) from UK after the fourth weekend, taking the overall total to ₹3.29 crore.

"Himmatwala" is a remake of an 80s blockbuster film of the same name. But unlike the original Hindi film, Ajay Devgn's film failed at the box office. Just when moviegoers began losing confidence in remakes, David Dhawan's "Chashme Baddoor" was released eliciting a good response at the box office.

"Chashme Baddoor", which is also a remake of an old film by the same name, is still drawing audiences overseas.  

The bone-tickling comedy which is in its third weekend is still being screened in UK, Ireland, North America and Australia.

The film raked in ₹2.10 lakh (£ 2,542) from six screens in UK and Ireland taking the total to ₹88.36 lakh (£ 1,07,507). In North America, the film minted ₹1.37 crore ($ 2,53,529) and ₹35.13 lakh (A$ 63,236 ) from Australia after its third weekend.

"Himmatwala" will finish its theatrical run this week, while "Chashme Baddor" still has one more week.
