Shah Rukh Khan's new movie My Name is Khan has become the most successful Bollywood film in British box office history. The film garnered 887,198.98 pounds (Rs.64.4 million / $1.4 million) in its opening weekend.
The movie shot to number six in the British box office countdown, making My Name is Khan the highest grossing Bollywood film opening ever in Britain, reported contactmusic.com.
Some Indian cinema halls screening the movie became targets of the Shiv Sena last week after Shah Rukh, a cricket club owner, said Pakistani players should have been included in this year's Indian Premier League. Despite the threats, the movie has been running to packed houses in India.
