Released in more than 160 theaters in the United States and Canada, Shah Rukh Khan's latest film Don 2 is doing a roaring business in North America.

Taking the benefit of the Christmas and year-end holidays wherein Indian American film lovers thronged movie theaters in large numbers, Don 2 during the first 11 days of its release grossed $ 3.3 million.

Don 2 surpassed $3.1 million of previous record-holder Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara starring Hrithik Roshan and Farhan Akhtar, as well as the usd 2.5 million of Khan's own Ra.One which was released during Diwali.

The Farhan Akhtar-directed action thriller Don 2 has already grossed more than Salman Khan's 2011 hits Bodyguard and Ready combined.

The movie also set a new record for the all-time biggest opening week for a Hindi film in North America collecting a stellar $2.64 million beating the $2.55 million that Shah Rukh's My Name is Khan earned in its first seven days in February 2010.

Co-starring Priyanka Chopra and Boman Irani, Don 2 continues to play to large crowds in over 160 theaters across the US and Canada.
