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.
In India, Chennai Express has a good chance of crossing the magicial 202 crore figure for the highest grossing domestic film. Overseas, it is likely to take the 3rd spot behind 3 Idiots ($26.1 million) and My Name Is Khan ($23.2 million).
