The much talked about Shahid Kapoor - Kareena Kapoor starrer JAB WE MET, which previewed in the UK on 25th October, has "smashed" the box-office on its opening weekend.
An Indian Films’ release distributed by Studio 18, JAB WE MET grossed £11,488 on its advance previews night on Thursday, and £144,525 on its opening weekend, making its gross to date, £156,013 from 31 sites.
This is the biggest ever opening for a solo Shahid Kapoor-starrer, radically above that of his other erstwhile hits in the UK, CHUP CHUP KE and 36 CHINA TOWN.
Says Tanuj Garg, Head - UK & Europe, Studio 18, "It's been a while since we had a young well-made romantic comedy. The heartening opening of JAB WE MET in the UK can be attributed to strong marketing and promotion aided by exuberant reviews and word-of-mouth."
