Anurag Basu's previous movies have not made much of a mark in the UK, but this time around, the presence of Shilpa Shetty and her success in United Kingdom's reality television series, Celebrity Big Brother, seems to have done the trick.
Shilpa's latest release METRO, has entered the UK charts at number 16, collecting a decent $121,650, with a healthy print average of $2,967. The importance of stars like Dharmendra, Konkona and Irrfan Khan too seems to have helped METRO.
However, the picture in the US is not the same, as the movie collected a very ordinary $62,477, with a print average of just $1,785, at number 45. But METRO was never expected to achieve much there in the first place!
