TS,

Crore is an Indian unit of measurement of numbers.

1 crore = 10 Million

And the sign denotes Indian Rupees (INR).

My implied point and I'm not sure why you instantly didn't get it?  You need to add this to the context of the list text.  Most people outside of India and Pakistan is not going to recognize those measurements.  10 million Rupees?  Is that supposed to mean very much to any one outside of citizens of the region and foreign exchange experts/traders?

It would make sense to also give an approximate dollar amount, but IMDb does feature content that is targeted to an Indian audience.

If I have it right, 1000 crore rupees is approximately 160 million dollars.

TS and Pibby,

I have added equivalent dollar amounts. This movie is about Indian box office. So, the Indian amounts has to be there.
