Records to beat on Tuesday for Chennai Express

Chennai ExpressChennai Express had a record-shattering weekend of Rs 100.43 crore, but the film failed to beat Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’s first Monday record by just 0.08 crore.

As far as the Tuesday records are concerned, Salman Khan’s last two releases Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 are right at the top. But both those films benefitted from holidays. So, for Chennai Express its once again Ranbir’s YJHD which collected 11.8 crore on its first Tuesday.

Early estimates suggest that Chennai Express might struggle to break the Tuesday record, as quite a few multiplex exhibitors have reported drops on Tuesday. The Eid celebrations are now over too, so business from muslim-dominated are also about 10% lower than Monday. We expect the first Tuesday business to be around Rs 11 crore.

  • Ek Tha Tiger – 16.31 crore (Holiday – Eid)
  • Dabangg 2 – 15.5 crore (Holiday – Christmas)
  • Jab Tak Hai Jaan – 15.23 crore (First Day – Holiday for Diwali)
  • Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – 11.8 crore
  • 3 Idiots – 10 crore
  • Dabangg – 8.75 crore

Note: Jab Tak Hai Jaan released on Tuesday, it was the films first day at the box office.



  • Again drop on tuesday means beating lifetime collections of “3 idiots” looking difficult now.Ok “CE” has broken some records but Lifetime collections of any movie(like 3 idiots and ETT) are most important for any Producer of the world(including Srk) and they only care of lifetime collection amount and not this weekend collection amount bcoz it is much bigger amount than this amount of weekend collection.It will be interesting to see whether “CE” will beat lifetime collections of “3 idiots” and “ETT” or even “YJHD” otherwise excuses will be ready as

  • Indicine , ur wrong during ETT..tuesday ws nt holiday but holiday ws on monday for correct it .

  • thank god……chennai express not break monday record otherwise hater wilnot survive………..
    chennai express make top 20 record in 3days in India and oversease reffer koimoi aricle…

    Q. How much will Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Open Dobara open with on day one? 15 or 20 crore

    A. Those figures are impossible. Its looking around 6 crore from its release. If it manages to get more shows than expected right now it could go a bit higher but its not going anywhere close to 15 crore.

  • CE will definitely cross the domestic and overseas collections of 3 idiots. SRK has once again proved to be the King of Bollywood. His charm and his style are something truly magical. I am already looking forward to seeing him in his upcoming movies.
    SHAHRUKH KHAN: The best actor and person ever existed before!!

  • DABBANG 2 & 3 IDIOTS has huge free weeks
    While YJHD had competition from FLOP YPD2
    While CE will be loosing screens to OUATIMD and MADRAS CAFE and SATYAGRAHA
    In free weeks it broke every record of which haters are proud of
    So now haters want to break a no competition film record to be broken by highly competed film
    LOL :-D

  • Patiently we should wait and watch till OUATIMD releases. Eager to see how it performs at the boxoffice

  • Still wid so much release in august and competition from ouatimd..
    Srk’s chennai express will still collect 200 cr inshaallah….
    Here is d expected earnings of chennai express from wednesday onward..

    Total 5 day stands app as follows : 123 cr to 124 cr.

    Wed : 10 cr
    Thu (independence day) 12 cr
    Fri : 9 cr
    Sat : 11 cr
    Sun : 12 cr

    So 54 cr alone from wed to sun..
    So total domestic collections till sunday will be around 175 cr to 180 cr..
    Suppose if it is only 175 cr till coming sunday…than also for the next ten days if it collects on the avg of 3 cr per day from monday; chennai express will surpass the lifetime bo collection of both ett and 3 idiots. .
    Lets hope for the best..
    Good luck srkians..

  • Just wait for the humongous second weekend on cards……..All the collections of Salman films except for ETT…will be crossed by week 1

    YJHD (non holiday) on 1st day : 19 crs + ( record)
    Chennai express (non holiday) on 4th day : 12 crs + ( under performer)
