BARFI! overseas collections in its opening weekend have made it the highest grossing Ranbir Kapoor film outside India, ahead of his previous records of films like ROCKSTAR and RAAJNEETI. The film has collected more than $2 millions in the overseas markets according to the information received from UTV-Disney. This takes the total weekend collection of the film to over 42 crores
BARFI! is 8th in the list of this year's top domestic openers, marginally behind AGENT VINOD. Looking at the fact that the film has not had as wide a release as RAAZ 3, or AGENT VINOD, the collections are commendable. It has been released on 1300 screens domestically, with greater emphasis on metros and A class cities.
