Chennai Express Saturday Box Office Update

Chennai ExpressAfter smashing all existing box office records on Friday, Chennai Express is set to cross the 60 crore mark on Saturday as morning shows across the country were running to 60-70% occupancy. Noon shows were even better at close to 75-80% occupancy, several shows were running to capacity.

With tomorrow being a national holiday (Sunday), the advance booking for the evening and night shows is excellent. Most shows at multiplexes are sold out in advance. Business in premium multiplexes is about 10-15% higher than a film like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani which collected around 20 crores on Day 2.

The Saturday collections of Chennai Express is almost certain to be in excess of 20 crores, but the record-breaking business on Friday was largely due to good / fantastic collections from single-screens in B and C centres. It is in these centres that the Shahrukh Khan starrer has slightly under-performed today, which is normal given the fact that today is a working day in some parts of the country.

We expect the business to be around 24-25 crores, and the second day record currently held by SRK’s Ra One  (25 crore) could well be history when the final collections come in tomorrow.

Stay tuned for all the Chennai Express box office updates!



  • But @indicine:
    please confirm whether it’s first day collection is higher than that of ett or not. .because now from somewhere i heard that it was 29 crs instead of 33 crs. .

  • Chennai aai aai aai aai aai chennai express…….. It will crush everything that comes in its way…. Ouatimd is going to b a disaster

  • Ok.Broke some records like preview(4 year old record) and single day and opening day(1 year old record) but what’s a big deal in this.Every year bollywood business increases,viewers in the theatres increases,ticket prices increases etc.Nothing to cheer about it.It was released widely with maximum screens and high ticket prices so it is not surprising. But the real test will be to maintain these collections from Monday which movies like “3 idiots” and “ETT” had maintained nicely.It is almost impossible for “CE” to beat lifetime collections of both this movies.And this couple of records will be just for 3 months bcoz “Krrish 3” will break it easily.

  • BREAKING NEWS : A dead “Tiger” was found on the railway tracks. Officials say it was run over by “Chennai Express” train.

  • 65 in just 2 days , and maybe more , that is amazing , non stoppable express , this year is a rock and rule year 4 the trains :D

    Long life my king, u are the best and u deserv to be happy.

  • All those who are confused with the conflicting reports of Chennai Express first day collections :-
    CE – 33.10 crores
    ETT – 32.93 crores
    Both the above are producer’s figures
    CE – 29 crores
    ETT – 30.25 crores
    Both these are distributor’s figures
    Hope doubt cleared.

  • which is true chennai express earned rs 33.12 cr in first day or 29 cr acc to etc ?etc is bakwaas channel because they even promote himmatwala heavily and completely tried to ruin collection of READY because ready producers doesn’t intrest to promote their film on etc. i am sure it earned 33.12 crore because why any production house wants to pay extra tax please.
    i am happy for shahrukh that ce done well in box-office but i know that someday {krishh3 or d3} its all record gets broken and new records made.apart from that CE is really good film reminds me of OSO.
    akki fans i am sure someday akki movie also make record but i am sure its not going to happen with OMATIMD as the buzz is not there.i am sure it ears a good amount but not going to be atbb.

  • fake … Boxofficeindia clearly mentioned that ce collects 29cr on 1st day and felt to break the ett 1st day record … Thats reality .

  • Ohhh khudaa plzzz plzzz saturday shd b anything above 25 crores n sunday in 28-30 crores range…!!
    Den d weekend might touch d 95 crore mark… n 100 crores in 4 daezzz in Sha Allah…!!

  • @ nipun c.e 1st day collection is 29 cr. It,s confirm komal nahta by his tweet even etc bollywood say it,s 29 cr. Also box office india confirm it 29 cr.

  • Hay Idicine team according to BOI 1st day total is 29.75 cr…which is less than ETT which was 30.25 cr. though i don’t like either…..
    @sid: no dear.. it ll not be 100 cr…. though ld be highest weekend till now……
    & ll be highest till end can’t say…as Krish 3 & Dhoom 3 are on the way….
    & one thing i don’t like Hrithik that much… but one thing for sure…
    the first promo of Krish 3 gave me a reconsideration… the promo is superb & i liked it very much…it the 2nd promo & song ld be as gr8 then definitely i ll watch Krish 3 in premium multiplex….
    For now best of luck to CE express till OPTIMD arrives( depends whether it had good content: as promos are good enough)

  • the truth is that the collections from utv is being universally one can deny the fact that even if utv post the saturday collections as 50 crore it will be universally accepted simply because they are may see that every newspaper websites and news channels have also posted the same collections(33.12)since they are declared official.the case with boi is it is not an universally accepted website and is majorly famous for posting collections different from other websites,means that 99 websites will claim 100 crore but boi will post 96 crore.i dont know why and how does this happen.thats the reason question arises about is genuinity and no one accepts a general acceptance of 100 people doesnt convince everyone that ce hasnt netted 33.12 crore.i think record is broken
