'We are privileged to have been associated with '3 idiots' and its immensely talented team led by Vinod, Aamir and Raju.

Added Chopra: 'Response has been overwhelming from all over the world. Aamir, Raju and I knew from the responses earlier on that people liked the film but this is something else? We have got reports from places like Australia that they have reduced 'Avatar' shows and increased ours.'
Released Friday, its box office collection has beaten the initial earnings of another Aamir starrer 'Ghajini', considered Hindi cinema's highest grosser till date, with 30 percent more earnings till Sunday night.
'3 Idiots' is the highest grossing Hindi film ever in Australia on its opening weekend. Similarly in the US, I have been given to understand that '3 Idiots' would be highest ever for a Hindi film,' said Chopra.
The paid previews of the movie also garnered over Rs.9 crore worldwide, above those of the paid preview collections of 'Ghajini' that was Rs.7 crore globally.
