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.

Until Monday Chennai Express recorded the total collections at the box office in India at 185.73 cr while its overseas collection was around 90 cr in two weeks.

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.

    Hi Subir why the hell you are wasting ur time for the movie you dont like…..

    Its amazing how people waste their time for the actor they dont like..

    How much of hard work they do.. at times they make fake ID.. then go search for the news then amazingly put not 1 comment but as many comment as possible…

  • himanshu

    Records speaks for itself… Really not the best of SRK… but clearly shows the power of SRK… If he decided to do Masala movies he can break any record..

  • himanshu

    Really no where close to YJHD… Its far better and ahead of it….

  • Sudipto Bhattacharya

  • himanshu

    there cant be anything to say for the people who have got baseless uttered hatred for some actor.. your activeness for the actor you hate is really remarkable dear..

    One advice dear.. spend more time for the actor and movies you like and be genuine in comments, why the hell wasting your time for the actor and movie you dont like…
