Chennai Express Sunday Business Update

Chennai ExpressFrom Kashmir all the way down to Kanyakumari, Shahrukh Khan’s Chennai Express is on a record-breaking spree across the country. The morning shows and noon shows on Sunday were on-par or better at places compared to Friday.

The film is outstanding in circuits like Tamilnadu/Kerala, Mysore, West Bengal and Mumbai. Major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Noida, Kolkata are recording exceptionally good occupancy between 85 – 95% throughout the day.

Chennai Express should comfortably cross the 30 crore mark and now has a good chance of joining the ‘100 crore club’ today. The record for the ‘Highest Sunday Collections’ in 2013 is currently held by Ranbir Kapoor’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (22.5 crore). Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2 with 23 crores on Sunday holds the overall record. Both are likely to be history tomorrow.

The Post-Eid period is proving to be one of the biggest holiday seasons for the film industry. Every film that has released in the last 4 years – Dabangg, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger and now Chennai Express – have taken record-shattering starts.

UPDATE 8PM Update: Sunday collections are likely to be in excess of Rs 32 crore. Usually, Business does tend to drop during the night shows as Monday is a working day. So far though, it has been a super Sunday in every circuit across India.

  • Records r meant to be broken but if it is by Srk even it becomes special…
    As an actor he doesnt care of boxoffice…but if u insist he wont spare anybdy…
    Wth Chennai Express he showcased his spirit of vengeance…so think twice before mouthing anythg abt our King khan

  • BREAKING NEWS : A dead Tiger was found on the railway tracks. Officials say it was run over by Chennai Express train. They also expect to find the bodies of 3 idiots soon.

  • This proves it. It’s not Salman who is biggest superstar or Shah Rukh Khan. It’s the EID and Masala genre which creates ATBB movie at box office.

  • hiked ticket prices,3600+ screens,solo eid release,too much promoted film,masala genre,rohit shetty ! with all these factors, its not a big deal to have these collections, any big star can do it. it just collected a few lakhs than ETT even with so much of promotion and costly tickets. actually it proves srk’s diminishing stardom.

  • if morning and noon shows are better than friday then its on its way to mint mouthwatering 34crore plus today unbelievable!! this movie should have been named after record express!!
