'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' among top ten at US box office
Breaking Dawn, Part 2 topped the chart while Bond film 'Skyfall' moved to number two in its second week.

New York: Legendary Indian filmmaker Yash Chopra's last film 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' (Till My Last Breath) has made a rare entry into the top ten of the US box office, grabbing the eighth spot among other Hollywood bigwigs.

As 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2' topped the chart with a gross of USD 141.1 million in the US and Canada, Bond film 'Skyfall' moved to number two in its second week earning USD 41.1 million, according to New York Times.

But more eye-catching was the entry of 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', the three-hour extravaganza made by the "king of romance" Chopra, before he died last month.

The movie entered the top 10 at number 8, taking USD 1.3 million at the box office, a rare appearance for a Bollywood film in box office rankings usually dominated by Hollywood productions.

The Hindi cinema legend, hailed for directing and producing some of India's most-loved movies over several decades, died last month aged 80 after being admitted to hospital with dengue fever.

The film has grossed a total of USD 7.58 million overseas, being the highest opening Bollywood film ever in countries like the US, UK, Australia and the Middle East, said a statement from its producers Yash Raj Films.

'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' is now rubbing shoulders with Hollywood bigwigs like Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln', which had USD 21 million in ticket sales, securing the third place in the US box office.

'Wreck-It Ralph,' the animated Disney film about a video game villain with dreams of becoming a hero, earned USD 18.6 million for fourth place. Fifth went to the movie "Flight," a star vehicle for Denzel Washington, who plays a crash-landing pilot with substance abuse problems. It pulled in USD 8.8 million.
