Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi becomes highest grosser for YRF, SRK

MUMBAI: The Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, which hit theatres in India and internationally five weeks ago on 12 December, has grossed Rs 1.8 billion to break all previous box office records for Yash Raj Films.

Rab Ne… has also become the highest-grossing Shahrukh Khan film till date.

Despite being released just after the terror attacks in Mumbai on 26 November last year amidst uncertain consumer sentiments and apprehensions and contending with the record-breaking onslaught of Ghajini on 26 December, the film has achieved quite a fair run at the box office.

The net collection of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi for the first five weeks in India is Rs 830 million (gross collections close to Rs 1.4 billion). The film has, thus, surpassed Yash Raj Films’ previous highest grosser, Dhoom: 2, which collected Rs 806 million net across its entire run in India.

The total gross collections from overseas markets including US, UK, Australia, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia are $8 million.

In the UK, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has grossed close to $2.1 million till date while n the Middle East, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has earned $2.25 million. The film has also achieved a gross of $2.1 million till date in the US.
