Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Bang Bang’ Sets Box Office Record

Hrithik Roshan starrer “Bang Bang,” a Fox Star remake of Tom Cruise-toplined “Knight and Day,” has set a box office record for Bollywood films in North America by reaching a total gross of $2.56 million making it the top Hindi movie of the year in the continent.

Co-starring Katrina Kaif, the film in its third week at the box office passed earlier Bollywood hit “Kick,” which stars Salman Khan and reached $2.47 million in North America where it’s playing in 100 screens.

However, worldwide gross puts “Bang Bang” at $52 million and that makes it No. 2 to “Kick’s” $61 million.

But Fox Star Studios chief Vijay Singh told the Financial Express, “There is no other release till ‘Happy New Year’ and so the winning streak should continue. The film has got a great scale to it and outstanding action. We released it outside of India in over 850 theaters, which is the biggest release for any Bollywood film. This includes mainstream theaters where Hollywood films are released. Especially in the Middle East, a lot of local Arabs have gone to see the film, which is why there is very strong performance. We have opened up new markets where Bollywood has not gone before. For example, we have released the film in Lebanon, Iraq and Burma where Bollywood films were not officially released.”

“Happy New Year,” starring Shah Rukh Khan, will open Oct. 23 to coincide with India’s Diwali holidays — a prime moviegoing period.
