New Delhi  – Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox has brought in more than $2.7 million in the U.S. and is said to be this year’s highest grossing foreign film at the American box office.

Apart from becoming the highest grossing foreign film of 2014, The Lunchbox is continuing to climb the box office charts, according to Box Office Mojo.

Co-produced by Guneet Monga, Anurag Kashyap and Arun Rangachari, it has reportedly surpassed Bollywood movies like English Vinglish ($1.8 million), Agneepath ($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.
