Setting a huge recording for a Tamil film — which was also dubbed into Telugu and Hindi — the Rajnikanth juggernaut Endhiran grossed over the weekend an estimated $1.56 million in North America.

But it could not topple the $1.7 million record weekend gross of 3 Idiots. The Aamir Khan starrer has become the highest grossing Indian film in North American at $6 million.

While Robot, which was showing in 139 theatres is the toast of the town, the romantic film Anjaana Anjaani had a decent opening. It grossed $517,000 in 91 theatres.

This is an awesome gross for any Indian film, particularly a Tamil film, said a distributor who asked not to be named. But people forget a number of theaters doubled the admission price for many shows to $25, some even charged $40 which would be more than the Imax admission price for Avatar.
