Shah Rukh Khan’s superhero movie Ra.One has taken off to a very good start in the Overseas circuit also. The film collected a total of £ 1,90,000 in UK and $ 2,30,000 in the US on the opening day (Wednesday, October 26).
In Singapore, where Ra.One was released on Tuesday, collection was US $ 40,000 on day one. On Wednesday, the collections in Singapore were $ 85,000. It is to be noted that the lifetime collections of 3 Idiots and My Name Is Khan in Singapore were $ 2,00,000 and $ 4,05,000 respectively. With such fantastic collections on the first two days itself, Ra.One seems to be headed for a good run in the South-East Asian nation. In UAE, the film collected 7,00,000 dirhams on the opening day, which was what Dabangg also collected. Bodyguard had collected 11,00,000 dirhams (highest ever).
