Directed by debutant Sabbir Khan, it released across India as well as in Pakistan, Britain, US, Australia, Europe, South Africa, Fiji Islands, the Middle East and Malaysia, among others.
Released July 3, the film opened to extraordinary advance bookings courtesy its unprecedented buzz and has brought a new lease of life for Akshay's flagging career after two major duds 'Chandni Chowk To China' and '8X10 Tasveer'.
'Kambakkht Ishq' is doing exceedingly well in all the overseas markets. All major markets like US, Gulf, Australia and even Pakistan have shown extraordinary box office performance in first week,' said Pranab Kapadia, president of Eros International in a statement released here Friday.

Nandu Ahuja, the senior vice president who looks after distribution in the domestic market for the company, says after the overwhelming weekend collection, the movie is going steady.
'The film has remained steady during the week post the stupendous opening weekend. The film is continuing to show fabulous collections and we are sure the film will continue to enjoy a fantastic run,' he said.
Co-produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Sunil A. Lulla, the film was made on a budget of Rs.62 crore (Rs.620 million) including print and advertisement costs and has grossed around Rs.70 crore (Rs.700 million) in the domestic market and Rs.21 crore (Rs.210 million) overseas.
The music and digital rights of the film have fetched around Rs.10 crore (Rs.100 million)

Apart from the death-defying stunts by Akshay, the film also has much publicised cameos by Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh and Denise Richards.

Its the most pathetic movie I have ever seen after CCTC,Tashan and Aag !! Both Kareena and Akki are playing childish rolls for the adult audience !! Where did this billion comes is the news and the tax people should investigate this badly written, scripped acted and horrible songs movie !!
Don't misjudge the movie.
Kambakht Ishq neither was tacky nor it had below-the-belt jokes.It was an entertaining comedy film unlike others in the recent past and this movie tells of how the nowadays generation moves on basis of these kind of concepts.However,the movie was more like an american romantic comedy which has it's unique concept and the film did rate it was PG 15+,so those of you who went with their families should have reconsider watching this film by watching the trailers or the posters displayed outside the cinemas and judged it.
Kambakkht Ishq is the now days generation kind of a movie, despite the critics who've criticised for it's foul language and vulgarity that makes the the script so weak,they didn't understand the movie's basic concept ,which I shall remind the people that it is:"THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES".
I'm very happy that the movie was successful around the world.Akshay's comic timing was perfect.
