Exclusive: 'Tees Maar Khan' sees UK record opening

By
Farah Khan
Farah Khan's new film has opened to record collections in the UK.

The Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer is reported to have collected over £70,000 in two days of preview screenings, and is expected to gross £100,000 by the end of the week.

The filmmaker told Digital Spy: "In the UK and US we are releasing earlier because the holidays begin on 22nd, so we get a really long weekend.

"We want to get the advantage of a bigger opening weekend and we get a five-day weekend this way. In the Middle East we release 23rd because all films release on a Thursday over there."

The current box office figures suggest that the Shirish Kunder-penned comedy may have the biggest opening ever in the UK for a Hindi film.

Tees Maar Khan is out now in international markets and releases on Friday in India.
