Chennai Express continued its steady run at the Indian box office, even as the country celebrated Krishna Janmastami on Wednesday. The film picked up by more than 40% to collect Rs 2.46 crore on its 20th day at the box office.
One of the reasons why Chennai Express has fared so well at the box office is because it has managed to show fantastic growth in business on every national holiday – initial Eid weekend, Independence Day, Raksha Bandhan, Krishna Janmastami and each of the 3 Sunday’s so far.
With Satyagraha releasing this week, Chennai Express will be the third choice this coming weekend as Madras Cafe is also carrying extremely positive word-of-mouth. The film should end its run with all India business of around 223 crore.
