Chennai Express 2nd Friday Collections: 8th Day

Chennai ExpressChennai Express dropped by around 65-70% on its 2nd Friday at the box office. A significant dip in business on the first day of the second weekend was pretty much expected as it was working day and Akshay Kumar’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara also had a wide release in theatres.

With around 7 crore of business on Friday, Chennai Express has now collected around 164 crore in 8 days (including previews). The Rohit Shetty film is still well on-course to cross the 200 crore mark, but a lot would depend on how well it fares on Saturday and Sunday. If there is any escalation in business for the late evening / night shows today and the entire day tomorrow, Chennai Express will have a very good chance of crossing the lifetime business of 3 Idiots (202 cr) next week.

The film is on a record-breaking spree in South India. Business in cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Mangalore, Hyderabad, Trivandrum, Cochin and even smaller towns is outstanding. Likely to break the 3 Idiots record by a distance!

Note: UTV is yet to release the official figure of Chennai Express. This page will be updated if and when they send the actuals.
