Chennai Express began its overseas box office run on a good note as the film did great business in popular global circuits. Being a Shah Rukh Khan film, whose fans cover a larger part of both hemispheres, the film received a brilliant response on its Thursday previews.
In Australia, the film earned Australian $ 38,315 and in New Zealand the film made NZ$ 8,058 which is magnanimous given only selected Bollywood films fare so well at their box office!
In U.K, the film has set new record, which is another SRK stronghold region. The film on its preview day earned £ 142,220 which beats the opening day records of his previous Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots and Salman Khan starrer Ek Tha Tiger in the circuit.
As per early estimates, this Rohit Shetty directorial made a business of over 3 crores in U.A.E.
However, the data from the crucial circuit U.S.A is still being compiled but going by the collections in other important circuits, trade expectations are immensely high!
