Director Reema Kagti’s latest venture Talaash starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee in leads, has fetched fantastic collection figures at the global Box Office in the first week. The psychological suspense thriller has surpassed Rs 100 crore mark at the collection centres worldwide in seven days.
Talaash, which was released in 2,600 screens on November 30 after six months delay, started with a bang at the Indian Box Office on Friday and its business went upwards over weekend. The movie raked in Rs 47.1 crores nett in the first weekend. Its collection dropped considerably on weekdays with the film adding Rs 20.8 crores to its seven days total Rs 67.9 crores nett in the country.
Talaash was released in 520 screens in 43 countries in overseas markets, just a day before it hit the screens in India. The suspense thriller has got very good response in the countries like USA, UK, UAE, GCC, Australia and New Zealand. It collected Rs 27.57 crore nett at the international Box Office. And it raked in Rs 9.18 crores on weekdays, taking its first week overseas total to Rs 36.75 crores nett ($ 6.75 million).
However, Talaash, which has collected Rs 104.65 crores at worldwide Box Office, is now facing a big threat from Khiladi 786, which has hit 2,785 screens in India and 450+ screens in the foreign market on December 7. Trade experts feel that the Akshay Kumar and Asin starrer, which has received a fantastic opening, would send down the collection of Talaash in the second week.
