The inevitable has happened and just as we had predicted in our box-office report, Karan Johar's Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer, MY NAME IS KHAN, has reset the Overseas records within 3-days of its release!
In the US MNIK is estimated to have netted $1.93 million during is opening weekend (12-14 February), beating the record of OM SHANTI OM which had $1.76 million to show during same period.
In the UK MNIK has grossed £936,000 beating KABHI ALVIDA NA KEHNA's £750,000. Even in the Middle East MY NAME IS KHAN has $890,000 to show as opposed to $830,000 by RAB NE BANA DI JODI.
The trend is similar in almost every overseas circuit (barring Australia where MNIK has beaten 3 IDIOTS), where Shah Rukh Khan's current release has beaten his own (old) record holder. No wonder we call him Bollywood's global superstar!
