It may come as a shock to many but the fact is that the overseas audience has totally rejected Mani Ratnam's RAAVAN in the key markets.

CHECK OUT: RAAVAN grosses 53 crore worldwide in opening weekend

Looking at the numbers, the Abhishek-Aishwarya starrer has grossed a paltry £122,284 from UK and a below par $480,703 from US during its opening weekend (18-20 June). The corresponding figures for the teams previous film GURU were £155,012 from UK and $843,200 (4-day weekend) in the US, and that too way back in 2007.

It comes as a big surprise because the film got a lot of good reviews from the foreign critics and even the London premier of RAAVAN was a grand affair.

Here's hoping for a turnaround in the fortunes of the film in the coming days.
