Jab We Met a smash hit in UK

The much talked about Shahid Kapoor - Kareena Kapoor starrer Jab We Met, which previewed in the UK on 25th October, has "smashed" the box-office on its opening weekend.

An Indian Films release distributed by Studio 18, Jab We Met grossed £11,488 on its advance previews night on Thursday, and £144,525 on its opening weekend, making its gross to date, £156,013 from 31 sites.

This is the biggest ever opening for a solo Shahid Kapoor-starrer, radically above that of his other erstwhile hits in the UK, Chup Chup Ke and 36 China Town.

Says Tanuj Garg, Head - UK & Europe, Studio 18, "It's been a while since we had a young well-made romantic comedy. The heartening opening of Jab We Met in the UK can be attributed to strong marketing and promotion aided by exuberant reviews and word-of-mouth."
