In India the film will technically be called a hit, but in reality it is a superhit (worldwide) for Reliance Big Entertainment, who paid Rs. 80 crore (excluding print and publicity cost) for the global rights of DON 2. The film is an overseas blockbuster grossing and#163;1,424,000 from UK and $3,651,700 from the US till the fourth weekend (13-15 January).
