This Friday's big release is going to be Rohit Shetty's Ajay Devgn starrer, SINGHAM. Given the fact that the film and its promos have created a huge buzz, SINGHAM is expected to commence on a good if not great start (huge at single screens), more so in Mumbai-Maharashtra and U.P. and Bihar.

It was always expected that ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA would put up an impressive show (especially at the multiplexes) and that is exactly what it did. As more numbers trickle in the weekend seems to be settling in the range of 27-28 crore. The collections are rock steady even during the weekdays. ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA has also put up an impressive performance in the Overseas (superb in the US) grossing ?255,000 from UK and $ 961,000 in the US, during the opening weekend (15-17 July). In the process ZNMD relegated the much hyped HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS 2 to a distant second spot, despite the fact that it achieved Hollywood's best performance of this year in India.
