Bollywood film disappoints in opening

|By:, SA News Editor

Eros International (EROS +0.3%) reports Jai Ho opened to a $16.3M global box office take. The mark fell short of estimates.

The Indian film was one of the most highly-anticipated of 2014.

Bollywood films have started to resonate in the U.S. Last month, Dhoom 3 became the first Indian film to earn over $1M on its opening day. Eros was hoping to see Jai Ho strike up a similar response stateside.
