Ritesh Batra's "The Lunchbox" has collected over $2.7 million in the US and is said to be this year's highest grossing foreign film at the American box office.

Apart from becoming 2014's highest grossing foreign film at the US box office, "The Lunchbox" has raked in $2.7 million (and still counting), according to the box office reporting service Box Office Mojo.

Co-produced by Guneet Monga, Anurag Kashyap and Arun Rangachari, it has reportedly done more business than Bollywood movies like "English Vinglish" ($1.8 million), "Agneepath(2012)" ($1.9 Million) and "Krrish 3" ($2.2 million).

The story revolves around Ila, a young middle class Mumbai housewife, essayed by Nimrat Kaur, trying to win back her husband's affections through his stomach and how a rare misplaced delivery in Mumbai's famously efficient 'dabba' system of lunchboxes, from homes to offices, connects her to an old widower, played by Irrfan Khan through notes in the lunch box.
