Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani has done very well in its initial weekend overseas as it racks up around $4 million and this is with issues in terms of less shows in markets like US and UK due to Barbie and Openheimer being so strong. The UK saw major issues in terms of shows and this meant that Sunday actually went higher than Saturday.

This is an overseas friendly genre but that has gone out of the window in the recent past and now and its practically whatever scores in India tends to score overseas as well. There have been films like Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar and Jugjugg Jeeyo which should have done better if that overseas genre friendly is still in play.

The plus for Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani is that Alia Bhatt is a bonafide star in overseas and probably ahead of the male stars of the newer generation and Karan Johar has a value in the tradiotional overseas markets. The other director who has that is Sanjay Leela Bhansali so a film like Gangubhai Kathiawadi sort of becomes a benchmark and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani should surpass the business of that film. Gulf being in better condition now than Gangubai Kathiawadi time is an added bonus.

The film is going to easily surpass the numbers of Jugjugg Jeeyo and Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar in one week flat. 

The apprx collections in the major markets are as follows.

US / Canada - $1,800,000

Gulf - $1,050,000

Aus A$410,000

TOTAL - $4,000,000 apprx
