Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
, which released worldwide on December 12th 2008, has grossed Rs. 90 crores worldwide
in its opening week, which is on par with and in some places even higher than two of the highest opening week grossers till date, Om Shanti Om and Singh Is Kinng. The film has also broken all earlier opening week collection records for Yash Raj Films, having surpassed the opening week collections of Dhoom: 2, which is regarded as one of the highest grossing films of all-time.
The total collections for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi in India are around Rs. 42 crores net (i.e. gross collections of Rs. 70 crores). The total gross collections for all overseas markets are over $4 Million (i.e. around Rs. 20 crores).
In the Middle East, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has broken all previous records for first week collections, grossing just under $1.3 million. The previous highest grossing film in the Middle East was Dhoom:2, which grossed approximately $1.86 million across its entire run. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is on course to break this all-time record going into its second week.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has also had a grand opening week across all overseas markets, including the UK, USA, Australia, Europe, Africa, and Asia, and features in the list of the highest grossers for the opening week in most of these territories.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has received a tremendous response from all audiences, and the film is set to continue achieving great numbers as it moves into its second week and beyond, and indeed has the potential to finish as one of the biggest blockbusters of all-time.
