Singham Returns biggest opener for Devgan in Dubai

Eros Entertainment said Ajay Devgan starrer Singham Returns has collected 7.5 lakh dirhams in the UAE on Thursday, its opening day in the Arab country.

The weekend begins on Thursday evening in the Gulf countries as Friday is a weekly holiday for them.

Total weekend collection overseas was $2.4 million or about Rs 14.5 crore, a statement on behalf of Eros said. The number can be seen in proportion to the total estimate of Rs 32 crore for the film as a whole during the first weekend.
