Chennai Express News Update

In the last few weeks, our inbox has been flooded with questions related to Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone’s Chennai Express – Release date of the trailer, update on the shooting schedule, screen-war with Akshay Kumar’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again were some of the most frequently asked questions.

Here is all the new updates that we currently have on Chennai Express.

Shooting: For the first time in 6 years, Shahrukh Khan took time out during the IPL season to complete Chennai Express in time for the EID weekend. The last shooting schedule is currently in progress in Kerala. Almost 90% of the film is complete.

SRK Deepika Chennai Express

Release Date: Although the official announcement hasn’t yet been made, Chennai Express will release on 8th August 2013. Confirmed.

Trailer: The Chennai Express Trailer or Teaser will be out next month. There are rumours that Shahrukh Khan might unveil the trailer during the IPL final in Kolkata.

Music: There were reports that SRK wasn’t too pleased with the music of Chennai Express, composed by Vishal-Shekhar, and has asked the music composer duo to rework on a few tracks. (Not true, the 2 songs that Vishal-Shekhar presented to SRK and Rohit Shetty was approved immediately). The music is expected to release in the second or third week of June.

Pakistan Release: CE was slated to release in Pakistan on August 8th, but the film might release a week or two after EID. A journalist in Pakistan tells us that the Pakistan Film Producers Association took the decision to not release both Chennai Express and Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again because two big Hindi releases might affect the business of 4 Pakistani films like War, Ishq Khuda, Mera Naam Afridi and Josh. SRK commands a huge fan-following in the country and his last release Jab Tak Hai Jaan did record business. Chennai Express stands to lose at least 5-7 crores if the release is delayed in the neighbouring country.

Screen war: We’ve spoken to quite a few people in the trade and it looks like Chennai Express will be the first choice for exhibitors. The film is almost certain to have around 25% more screens and will also be allotted more shows at multiplexes. CE should release on 3000 screens in India.

More Chennai Express News Updates soon. Stay tuned to Indicine.

I dont think akshay will cry like ajay devgan coz akhay is not a small star. Even ekta kapoor wont cry coz i think she is a strong woman who knows how to promote her films.

Eid will be saved by OUATIMA against the Diwali Destroyer Srk. All the best Team Milan and srk please continue driving your Chennai Depress past Eid date and release your pile of crap 2 weeks later or any other date but leave major religious festivity dates alone…! :-P

even though i have nothing to do with srk or akshay, but i would say both chennai express and ouatima are huge movies, so promoting one over the other would be unfair, there should be equal attention, i hope indicine pays a little attention to this , anyways this eid is going to be huge . but i am more inclined towards ouatima than ce !!!!

What the problem if the screens are not equal i think who love an actor and his movies will watch them even if there is only one screen and if there is no weekend too,
he will find aplace and time .
but to the producers it is all about business and that is their work to spreed their movies every where
but to the fans they should only worry about movies content not the screens numbers or the clashes , net worth and release dates, it is not their problem its the producers prob.
to fans it suppose to be all about having some fun with ur friends or ur family, spend nice time while watching ur fav actor
thats it no more.

So Chennai Express will start rolling from aug 8th. How long and how fast will it go ?. Well SRK’s name is enough for high speed but content will decide its longetivity.

which movie releasing with more screen space nothing decided yet but whatever it will ,it’s can affect only openning day onwards good content base movie will carry forward to big success and one more thing is thats srk is big name in overseas not in india ,it already proved after jab tak hai jaan vs son of sardaar don’t worry akshay fan’s it dosen’t matter.negative point in CE north indian people dosen’t like more south base movie unless which make any btown superstar and postive point for OUATIM is akshay has muslim character on eid release
