Gaurav Verma, from Red Chillies Entertainment added, "The response to HNY is overwhelming across the globe. We look forward to the next few weeks as HNY opens in more territories in Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin and North America."

Happy New Year made the biggest weekend opening ever with Rs 108.86 crores, breaking the record of Aamir Khan-starrer Dhoom 3, which had earned Rs 107.61 crores on the domestic ticket windows.
The film is likely to cross the Rs 200-crore mark as there are no big Bollywood films hitting the theatres this week.
