Bol Bachchan has scored a strong opening in North America, generating the best debut this summer for any Bollywood film.

Released by Fox International Productions and starring Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan, Rohit Shetty's comic hit grossed $562,000 in its first three days beating the opening of Akshay Kumar's Rowdy Rathore by 47% despite playing in fewer theatres, IANS reports.

The Hollywood Reporter remarked that Abhishek Bachchan gives "one of his best performances to date" and that the film is filled with "engaging performances and ever-spiralling hysteria".



Bol Bachchan more than tripled the opening weekend of the last Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgn project Singham which released last July.

The film entered the Top 20 at the North American box office and also scored a huge number one opening in India.

Speaking via Twitter about the film's success, Bachchan said: "All of you have stood by me through thick and thin. And that means the world to me. I will never be able to thank you enough.

" We made this film for you. And it makes me so happy that you've received it with open arms. We gotta go out and play something LOUD now!!!
