Echoing its strong domestic box office performance, Talaash has done excellent business overseas. Talaash had a $4.7 million opening at the overseas box offices, beating 3 Idiots' opening collection of $4 million.

Meanwhile, Jab Tak Hai Jaan has grossed $12.25 million till date at overseas box offices.

Talaash earned around Rs 6.25 crore at the domestic box office on Monday, taking its overall collection to over Rs 50 crore.

Directed by Reema Kagti, Talaash features Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor.

Talaash has done a good business at the multiplexes but its single-screen performance was not that strong.

Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Aamir Khan and Farhan Akhtar, Talaash had a good opening weekend, netting around Rs 43.50 crore - the eighth highest opening for a Bollywood movie. The list is topped by Ek Tha Tiger, which grossed around Rs 56 crore in its first weekend.

Apart from a strong performance in Rajasthan, Gujarat and metros, Talaash's earnings were boosted by its good showing in south India.

In Talaash, Aamir Khan plays an investigation officer, Inspector Shekhawat, who receives a phone call early in the morning informing him about an accident and everything starts to unfold from there.
