Indian comedy adventure Bol Bachchan starring Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan scored a terrific opening in North America generating the best debut this summer for any Bollywood film.

Released by Fox International Productions, Rohit Shetty's comic hit grossed $562,000 in its first three days beating the opening of Akshay Kumar's Rowdy Rathore by a remarkable 47 percent despite playing in fewer theatres, according to Boxofficeguru.com.

It also debuted bigger than Teri Meri Kahaani starring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. In addition, Bol Bachchan more than tripled the opening weekend of the last Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgn project Singham which released in July of last summer.

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-spiraling hysteria."

Bol Bachchan landed in the Top 20 at the North American box office and also scored a huge number one opening in India.
