Shahrukh Success for My name is Khan in UK – Aamir Khan in India

Filed under: Entertainment — Tags: , — admin @ 10:10 pm

After the December release of Aamir Khan’s 3 idiots, the next biggest movie that was awaited was Shahrukh Khan’s My name is Khan.

Like 3 idiots Shahrukh Khan’s MNIK didn’t left a good impression on Indian people rather it grabbed attention of people outside India. I am talking about box office collection of My name is Khan in UK.
3 idiots vs My name is khan

While comparing both movie 3 idiots vs MNIK, My name is Khan leaves 3 idiots behind in UK but overall collection in first week for MNIK is much less than Aamir’s 3 idiots.

My Name is Khan has become Bollywood’s most successful box office opener in Britian and it has already grossed more than 936,000 pounds since its release 12th February. This movie entered the UK box office chart at number six leaving behind Invictus and A Single Man( english movies).

The movie release on 12th February grabbed the full attention of youth world wide as it follows the valentine’s day. Movie was going housefull in many places of country for that day and in West Bengal in many areas it was sold out for a week. But the expectation of viewers was not fulfilled, people told that movie have no such content specially for youths ( love and romance like thing which 3 idiots had).

People had started comparing MNIK vs 3 idiots and due to high class movie of Aamir, My name is Khan was not anywhere around it. People told movie is good, nice theme, good message but its not entertaining. This movie will let you cry but not laugh at any instant.
