New York: The Rajasthan-set comedy "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" climbed into the Top 10 at the U.S box office during the weekend of May 11-13 despite playing in only a limited number of theatres.

Starring Judi Dench and Dev Patel, the critically acclaimed film grossed an estimated $2.65 million from only 178 theatres while most movies that made the list of most popular films were playing in more than 1,500 theatres each.

Films set in India rarely make the Top 10 in the U.S, but "Hotel" has grossed $3.7 million after its second weekend of release and will now open in additional cities across North America May 18.

The ensemble hit, which was named a Critics' Pick by The New York Times, follows a group of British retirees who decide to "outsource" their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India.
