Salman Khan-starrer "Bodyguard" is on a record-breaking spree. After a stupendous opening in the domestic market, the film has surpassed the record of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer "My Name Is Khan" by earning £ 194,000 on the first day of screening in Britain.
"My Name is Khan" had collected £ 191,000 on the opening day in Britain.
The film is also on its way to becoming the highest grosser in the Middle East. It has collected $1.6 million in the first two days, just a little behind the previous highest grosser "Dabangg" which collected $1.7 million.
"Reliance Entertainment's overseas team is delighted to have delivered one of the biggest overseas hits of the year. 'Bodyguard' is poised to be a record-breaking success for Salman Khan in the international markets," Sanjeev Lamba, CEO Reliance Entertainment said in a statement.
The film, which also stars Kareena Kapoor in the lead, has earned $3.8 million in the US and is expected to overhaul the $5 million collections of "Dabangg".
