If it was deemed that Chennai Express had concluded its lifetime run, the assumption would be incorrect. The Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer has been relentlessly performing well with a tireless ease at box office, with the current economic wavering working in its favor. The film, that has so far made a worldwide gross income of 420 crores, has chances to add more moolah in its kitty soon, as the film is all set to hit the screens in a few more circuits overseas.

India’s Ambassador to Egypt Navdeep Suri announced on Wednesday the return of Indian movies to Egyptian theatres from October 2, 2013. United Motion Pictures, facilitated by Gaurang Films and the Indian Embassy in Cairo, will bring to Egyptian audiences their much loved Indian actors and actresses on the big screen and as a part of the initiative, Chennai Express will hit Egyptian theatres in Cairo and Alexandria on October 2. The movie, initially, will run in 2 theaters in Alexandria and 8 theaters in Cairo, including all the major theaters and multiplexes.

Venturing films into new geographical zones have turned out to be extremely beneficial for Bollywood in the recent years. Though Chennai Express has recorded the highest collections worldwide, in the overseas arena Aamir Khan’s 3 idiots still scores as the highest grosser with USD 26 million. 

3 Idiots released in China in December 2011, after which the film’s earning were 118 crores as per the dollar rate of Rs. 47, during the respective year, catapulting the film way ahead of the total collections raked up by My Name Is Khan overseas. After the film released in Japan in June-2013, it made another 1 million i.e. 6 crores as per this year’s dollar rate – Rs. 60.

It is predicted that Chennai Express will be able to earn atleast 3-4 crores net from the newer circuits where the film will release. With the high domestic income, as well SRK’s international fan following that is working well for the film in the global zones too, the film will easily be able to pull in the estimated range, given the higher rate of dollar currently.
