Detailed worldwide box office collections of Chennai Express.
India: Opened to packed houses at multiplexes, single-screens were dull which is understandable as not many were aware of the films pre-release. Overall 75-80% opening across India. Rs 6.25 crore (RECORD for paid previews)
Singapore: Earth-shattering response for Chennai Express in Singapore, by far the best opening for any Bollywood release in the country. The film collected 132,000 SGD (Rs 63.5 lakhs).
UAE: Recorded the highest ever single-day collections in history. When the final collections come in, Chennai Express could be the first film to cross Rs 3 crore mark in UAE-GCC. From the figures that we have received so far, the film has collected 1,745,000 Dihrams (Rs 2.85 crore)
United Kingdom: Fabulous opening, record-breaking for paid-previews. Chennai Express collected £142,220 (Rs 1.3 crore)
Australia: Good start, collected A$38300 (Rs 21 lakhs)
New Zealand: Decent opening, collected NZ$ 8000 (Rs 4 lakhs)
Pakistan: Will release today in the neighbouring country. Advance booking is excellent, should break all opening records.
Worldwide collections of Chennai Express (wide release in UAE, paid preview elsewhere): Rs 11.29 crore
