It is old news that Karan Johar's MY NAME IS KHAN is re-writing history and creating box-office records in the Overseas market, wherever it has opened. And we will not give the details about how MNIK has broken all the records held by previous SRK movies in US or state that MNIK has already set a new high for UK by grossing £2,307,067 so far and still counting.

We are actually here to give our patrons an interesting insight into the business of MY NAME IS KHAN in the relatively unknown and uncharted territories, even places where no other Hindi film movie has been released before. First let us let you know about Bahrain, a small island in the Persian Gulf, where MY NAME IS KHAN is the first Hindi film to release and has topped the box-office charts collecting $148,800. The whole of Middle East sees a new record as MNIK has collected a total of $3.3 million, till we last heard.

Coming to the numbers in the exotic African countries, in the unknown and new territory of Ghana, the country known more for its cocoa, MNIK is the first Hindi film to release and it has created a sensation by topping the box-office charts collecting $7,443. In the country of the pyramids, Egypt the film opened to a superb response collecting $42,362. Moving on to South Africa (entire region), MY NAME IS KHAN has notched up an impressive $177,119.

Moving on to South East Asia, MY NAME IS KHAN has mopped up $301,094 from Singapore. In Malaysia MNIK has $120,452 to show. In Indonesia, the film has grown from six to 14 screens and has seen a jump of 300 percent in week three.

Well, certainly and without even a hint of doubt, Karan, SRK, Kajol and Fox have done Bollywood proud by daring to take their film to many hitherto un-explored territories and then topping the charts as well, creating history. And maybe this will open the doors for other Hindi films which will follow suit and thus give the citizens of those country a chance to celebrate Bollywood.

Well, the world is certainly following Bollywood's (King) KHAN!
