The much talked about Shahid Kapoor - Kareena Kapoor starrer JAB WE MET, which previewed in the UK on 25th October, has "smashed" the box-office on its opening weekend.
An Indian Films? release distributed by Studio 18, JAB WE MET grossed ?11,488 on its advance previews night on Thursday, and ?144,525 on its opening weekend, making its gross to date, ?156,013 from 31 sites.
This is the biggest ever opening for a solo Shahid Kapoor-starrer, radically above that of his other erstwhile hits in the UK, CHUP CHUP KE and 36 CHINA TOWN.
Says Tanuj Garg, Head - UK & Europe, Studio 18, "It's been a while since we had a young well-made romantic comedy. The heartening opening of JAB WE MET in the UK can be attributed to strong marketing and promotion aided by exuberant reviews and word-of-mouth."
