RAAJNEETI has achieved the second highest opening weekend collections in the history of Indian cinema. 3 IDIOTS holds the record for the highest opening weekend but we need to bear in mind that it opened on a Christmas Friday and Monday too was a bank holiday.

At Rs. 33-35 cr Net Box Office Collections on its opening weekend (which is equivalent to approximately Rs. 50 cr Gross Box Office), this puts the film in a position to achieve record collections in the course of its theatrical run, especially as there is no big movie scheduled for release the next weekend, giving RAAJNEETI an uninterrupted 14 day solo theatrical run.

Overseas as well, the opening weekend has been excellent. In fact in Australia and the UK, the film took a higher opening on Friday than 3 IDIOTS.

CHECK OUT: Movie Review - RAAJNEETI

RAAJNEETI is an ensemble cast film which does not feature any of the established male superstars of Hindi cinema, making this performance even more creditable.

Having pre sold the Satellite TV and Music rights at a combined additional revenue of Rs. 22 cr, this makes UTV's first film for the financial year 2010-11 a blockbuster, and heralds a great start to our best slate of movies ever.

One SMS we received sums up the sensational opening of RAAJNEETI and that is from one of the members of the audience at the single screen cinema Chandan in Juhu, Mumbai. He said 'Bahut Time ke Baad aaj Chandan mein 'Black' me ticket bik rahi hai' ( translated 'after a long long time at Chandan there is a sale of tickets in 'black' due to the demand to see the movie).

Cheers!
