Shah Rukh Khan has made an impressive comeback. Box office collection comparison of Chennai Express vs 3 Idiots are giving sleepless nights to his detractors
Things seem to have become very bright for badshah of the Hindi film industry, Shah Rukh Khan. His film is already a massive hit and the way it is still going strong there is every reason to infer that it is set to beat all previous box office records. Salman Khan’s films were released on the occasion of Eid too, but they too didn’t get this rousing response that Shah Rukh Khan has got. Chennai Express is forcing everyone to rethink the predictions of Shah Rukh Khan becoming irrelevant.
Now Bollywood critics who had written off the film immediately after its release are eating their words. Chennai Express is a train that has become unstoppable. Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Chennai Express after breaking several records at the box office has now created a new record of earning Rs 270 cr worldwide.
Confirming the same Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: ChennaiExpress [Week 2]: Fri 6.50 cr, Sat 8.51 cr, Sun 10.22 cr, Mon 3.80 cr. Grand total: Rs 185.73 cr. SUPERB… Note: India biz only.”
On Raksha Bandhan, Chennai Express came with a unique idea. To get more filmbuffs to the film, the producers came out with a mouth-watering. Buy two tickets and get one ticket free on the occasion of Rakshabandhan.
Made with a rather modest budget of Rs 75 cr, Chennai Express has become the fastest 100-cr earner in the history of Indian cinema. Now it is heading fast towards the national record of Rs 200 crore. The Rohit Shetty directorial outing has become the biggest grosser of 2013 beating the collections of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. It is also the third biggest grosser of all times in India after 3 Idiots and Ek Tha Tiger. Chennai Express, revolves around the journey and adventures of a 40 year old bachelor from Mumbai who falls in love with a Don’s daughter from South.
