My Name Is Khan has kicked up a new frenzy in the UK where he is no less than a king among film goers, upon the release of the film there. In Australia the February 11 preview collections for the film were ranked at #11. In the Gulf countries the movie fared 50 per cent better opening collections than other competing releases. Middle East countries have an established fan base for King Khan. In Egypt, Syria, Oman and Lebanon, where also the film was released, the response was phenomenal.
