Bang Bang vs Chennai Express: Box Office Collection Comparison

Bang Bang has collected Rs 94.13 crore in its first extended weekend at the box office, which is about 10% lower than the first 4 days collections of Shahrukh Khan’s 2013 Eid release Chennai Express.

Quick points on the release circumstances of the two films

  • Chennai Express released on 3500 screens in India, while Bang Bang has released on 4300 according to Fox Star Studios.
  • Chennai Express released on the holiday for Eid considered to be one of the best periods for film releases. Bang Bang released about 3 weeks before Diwali and during the the Navratri period, which is not considered to be the best time to release films.
  • Chennai Express had a solo release, Bang Bang released alongside Haider which released on 1250 screens in India.
  • Both films were commercial entertainers with two of the most bankable male and female stars in the country (domestic business only).
  • Chennai Express trended very well and went on to be one of the biggest grossers of all time. It could probably have been even bigger if not for the release of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaraa the following week.

  • Hr – 8 hits. Amir – 7 hits. Shahid – 4hits (boi-3) … That is why, they lack any loyal fan base. They are dependent on guranteed hit scripts, raju hirani , critical acclaim or universal appeal movies.

  • Honestly being a Hr fan I was hugely disappointed after watching Bang bang… .d Only positive was hrithik. Seriously hope dat hR does better movies, which deserve him… If at all he wants to stay “mehfoos” in bollywood.

  • Shahid has 4 hits in 10 yrs. Hr has 8 hits overall in his career. Amir has 7 since 2000. Bcoz of these , they have no fan following among masses. If they do a mass movie like dabang,singham ,, it will open even less than akshay kumar’s boss. #fact . Hr,amir,shahid are dependent on dream projects, raju hirani and big budget universal appeal movies too much.
    @indicine publish this.

  • In despite of limited release nd with highly critically acclaimed movie haider, bang bang has collected 94 crores in just 4 days…this shows the power of superstar hritik roshan.

  • CE was collected huge money because it was well made entertainer, able to entertain released on probably the best weekend in 2013, yes one upon a time dent its collection but actually its CE who dent OUATIMD very badly by pushing it one week ahead,you guys should also thank if OUATimd wouldn’t postponed than CE could never been an all time grosser,remember till cr trailer release its Once upon who booked EID first but their producer wasn’t much strategy maker.
