So, how well has the Salman Khan ‘Kick’ experience gone down with the global masses ? as translated into box office collections?
Well, it was almost a Rs 100-cr hit over the opening weekend. While India box office collections contributed as much as Rs 83.83 crore as of Sunday, the rest of the world was a bit of a drag, especially the UK, which managed a paltry Rs 2.44 crore.
However, making up for that lacunae were the North American collections (United States of America / Canada), which totalled Rs 6.16 crore.
Looks like Salman Khan’s charm offensive over the years has worked well over the Atlantic, while across the much nearer Mediterranean Sea it has not.
Across the Gulf, the collections have been fair to middlin’ with the United Arab Emirates/G.C.C contributing Rs 4.09 crore. For more: Kick Worldwide Box Office Collections
