  • today Chennai express will beat akshay’s rowdy rathor lifetime collection & tomorrow it will beat salman’s bodyguard, dabangg lifetime collection.

  • even ranbir is bigger star than srk lol.. forget comparing him to salman n aamir.. rohit shetty, deepika padukone, eid n back to back 3 holidays came to the rescue for srk this time

  • The film really deserved that….the film was absolutely fantastic….i really like emotional movie….this is one of them…..must watch

  • so funny to see finally the anti-srk fans are opening their mouth…they forgot that this collection is just for 5 days and still its collecting steady 10+ cr everyday with an avg. of 24-25 per all u guys..hate srk much more then this becoz the more u hate him ,the harder he will hit back…thats the reason at the age of 47 he is still ruling from last 20 years…carry on plzzzz

  • @dxt naam well you are not at all ranbir fan, so wait just more 10days when 3i rocords are broken by srk and no actor break srk recrod in fatest 100cr club.

  • when will ur bhai get a filmfare best actor…..forget SRK even ranbir has 2….when will ur bhai make a hatke classic…..again forget SRK even Ranbir has a Barfi…….

  • It is good that SRK has bounced back and struck chord with desi audience again.
    No idea how CE will trend in coming days, but it’s great for SRK that he’s giving a blockbuster after string of hits and not after a string of flops! SRK’s consistency is incomparable!

  • Very interesting article (courtesy :mumbai mirror)
    OUTIMD team were in DUBAI to promote their upcoming film. very surprisingly they got a call from the palace for an invitation to dinner. very happily but curiously they all went
    once inside the palace and in front of the king they were asked to introduce themselves.
    SHockingly they found out that kings knowledge about bollywood started and stopped at SRK
    The king than asked them how were they related to SRK. every one had to say that they r stars like SRK
    than the king asked have they come to promote SRK s movie.
    finally AKSHAY kumar asked the king has he seen any movie. he said yes. SRK movies
    the whole team felt so awkward and got the first hand information about the popularity and fame of king SRK
    wow really great

  • @dxt naam. they were coming to rescue salman every year. that’s WY he has so many big grossers
    ha ha ha ha ha

  • Movie have great advance for today evening and night and tomorrow. Tomorrows advance is far better than outimd. Trend shows movie is well accepted

  • I know every one is waiting for my chennai express prediction for remaining days specially sulaiman bhai fans so here it goes
