‘Dilwale’ had become the highest collecting film in Singapore (only Bollywood film to cross Singapore $ 1 million), South Africa, Netherlands, Malaysia (6 times bigger than the last highest grosser), West Indies & Jordan.

Dilwale is also the second highest collecting film of all time in overseas markets such as UAE –GCC (which also had the highest opening weekend for any Bollywood film), Peru, Kuwait, Indonesia, Egypt and Morocco.

Some other countries that saw the highest opening weekend for a Bollywood film include Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Pakistan.

While in UK, which is one of the biggest overseas markets for Bollywood films, it had collections, which were unbelievable. UK crossed GBP 1 million in just five days and it was the fourth SRK film to cross GBP 2 million. Only seven films have done it so far.

Only 16 films so far have crossed $10 million overseas, in which SRK has 9 films, which shows the reach and following he enjoying in overseas.

The film was released on December 18, 2015.

      I've seen THE INTERVIEW soo many times and have failed to find any anti India statement made by SRK. I wonder if the numbskulls and dimlights who protested did actually take the effort to watch the interview. Anyways extremely pleased to know about the success of SRK's movie. If a movie which ain't even his best by far can do such business I wonder what FAN and RAEES would do??

                    'Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Dilwale’, which collected Rs 365 crore overseas, has become the second highest grosser of 2015. ' Come on guys, do a fact check before posting articles, you owe at least that much to your readers. Have Dilwale collected Rs 365 crore overseas or did it collect it globally? The difference is huge. If it did collect Rs. 365 crore overseas, that means when you add the Indian collection to it (which is over Rs. 210 crore at this point) the total collection would be close to Rs. 575 crore. This is not true. This would make it the 3rd most successful Bollywood movie ever. If you have followed the film industry in any way you would understand that there is something wrong with that. There is no excuse in getting numbers wrong, it's so easy to verify them.

                      Yes it does, but the article didnt say worldwide, it said overseas. Overseas doesn't include India or Asia.

                            Dear friend, he has never insulted your nation. He has the freedom of speech and he spoke about just like 100s of milion people do. He has represented india at an international level and made us proud. He has over 10 charitable foundations of which he does not boast of. If you dont want dont watch his movies, but he is a true patriot. If you have doubt watch the interview again, he said being unsecular is the worst crime you can commit being and indian, whats wrong with that? Did e mention hindus muslims or christians? Well keep misjudging genuine people..

                                  Thankfully, people are exercising their own choice and not following the Bhagwa leaders blindly. Let an entertainer be an entertainer only.
