The Akshay Kumar-starrer grossed Rs 46 crore at the box office in its opening weekend with Rs 32 crore coming from the domestic box office and the rest from the overseas market, Eros International said in a statement. The film, released in about 2,000 screens world-wide, cost Rs 75 crore.
The film’s overseas collections amount to almost 30% of the total collections. This was partly because it was released in the US on one of the most popular bank holiday weekends. Total collections from the US stood at Rs 3.36 crore, while it collected Rs 1.44 crore from the UK. The box office collection from Pakistan, where 15 prints were released, stood at Rs 48 lakh.
Kambakkht Ishq continues to do well in the weekdays too with occupancy figures touching about 50%. “Akshay Kumar has a lot of fans who will want to see the film,” says Vishal Kapur, COO, Fun Cinemas.
The music of the film has done well too, according to Biren Ghose, executive director of Eros International Films which also owns the film’s music under its Eros Music label.

Aurang..calm down buddy! Mere collections or a movie becoming Hit doesn't prove a thing. Absolute crap movies like OSO could become monster hit but does it prove any point? Any day I would prefer Swades which was an utter flop (commercially speaking).
In Bollywood, the thumb rule is if a movie is a great Hit its goodness/greatness is inversely proportional:)
Raja sen you have no film knowledge . you always wrong in film review , we know something hidden business in your mind . Dont spoil your career . Live life with honesty and earn money from hardwork . Kambakkht Ishq is Super Hit Movie . Akshay Kumar not done News channels publicity etc after Bumper Response . Thats prove that Akshay Kumar is Real king of Bollywood , who know his power in Box office .
