He is the real king of the Indian filmdom and unprecedented Chennai Express box office collection success has got Shah Rukh Khan Rs 100 core plus offers

Chennai Express Box Office Collection success has given rise to brand Shah Rukh Khan once again. He is now the most sought after actor in the Indian film industry and King Khan who used to make most of his films from his own Red Chillies Entertainment is getting dozens of offers these days from almost all the top filmmakers in the country. There are reports that Shah Rukh Khan is getting Rs 100 crore offers too, and then there are people who are even prepared to pay him much more.

The mammoth success of his latest film Chennai Express seems to have changed the perception about him. He has been among the best actors in the country, and all his films did good business at the box office. Nonetheless he was not known to get the sort of response that Aamir Khan or Salman Khan films got. The two actors have to their credit most of the highest grossing films in the Indian cinema. Though Shah Rukh Khan too has a couple of films in the highest grossers nonetheless these paled in comparison to Mr perfectionist Aamir Khan and bhai of Bollywood Salman Khan.

But now Shah Rukh Khan has to his credit the highest grossing film in the Indian industry so producers are lining up outside his palatial house Mannat in Mumbai to agree him to act in one of their next movies. Without doubt Shah Rukh Khan has once again proved that he is a dependable Bollywood face and that his USP remains intact. His latest film Chennai Express launched on the main Muslim festival of Ramadan Eid has brought unprecedented success to this Khan who studied mass communication before entering television and then Bollywood.  The unprecedented excitement in the air about Shah Rukh Khan’s film despite its run at packed theatres across the world suggests that SRK remains still a great brand. His film’s collection has gone up to around Rs 425 crore and has become the highest grossing film in the history of Indian cinema.

To be true, with the latest success, the 48-year old top Bollywood actor has returned to the game. Shah Rukh Khan shattered the record of his most important competitors in the Indian cinema Aamir Khan and Salman Khan with his latest movie. Aamir Khan’s film 3 Idiots had the highest box office collection record to its credit, but Shah Rukh Khan’s film Chennai Express has beaten Aamir Khan’s film to become the biggest box office success in the history of Indian cinema. But now there are indications that he may not remain on top for too long. Salman Khan has said that he is going to break Sahh Rukh Khan’s record with his forthcoming movie.

But no one is sure as to how long he will be able to cling to the record. Besides Salman Khan, Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 is all set to be launched early next year and it is expected to break SRK’s Chennai Express record. But it is easier said than done as for reaching Rs 425 crore box office collection the film needs to begin exceptionally well and continue the dream run not just in the first three days but in the whole of the week, second week and even continue doing well at the box office for the next several weeks. And then only the feat can be possible to achieve. So things are looking rather very interesting at the moment.
