Monday Update: Yash Raj Films reports that Jab Tak Hai Jaan took in $1.283 million from 160 locations. during its first weekend of release in North America. Final numbers are still coming in, but that should be good enough for a 10th place finish.
Saturday Update: Boxoffice.com is projecting that Jab Tak Hai Jaan will earn $1.85 million in North America this weekend, which will be enough to put it in the top 10. The last film from India to crack the North American top 10 during a weekend was Housefull 2 this past April.
Notes: These grosses come from areas with reliable reporting. They do not represent the entire country.
