Chennai Express Worldwide Collections: Detailed

Chennai Express has grossed Rs 326 crore in just 10 days since its worldwide theatrical release on 8th August, to become the fastest money-spinner of all time. The Shahrukh Khan starrer became only fourth film to cross the 300 crore worldwide mark, after 3 Idiots (385 crore), Ek Tha Tiger (330 crore) and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (310 crore).

Chennai Express will go past Ek Tha Tiger today, but the 385 crore set by Rajkumar Hirani’s 2009 classic could be beyond reach.

What happened ? All your predictions proved wrong ? That was certain because you used zero logic and placed your predictions on hatred.

You said SRK is finished ? & CE won’t even collect 100cr ? One solid film from SRK and all Salmans movies have fallen behind, in just the first week of release, there’s still more to come.

If I were you I’d shut your mouth and stop commenting, fool.
