Chennai Express dampens Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara's business, collects Rs185.73 crore

Tuesday, Aug 20, 2013, 16:52 IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA Web Team

SRK-Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express is also setting new records in the international arena.

King Khan once again proved that he is the Badshah of Bollywood with the tsunami effect that his latest film Chennai Express has created in the country.

It has broken all box office records in all fronts.Be it the first day collection of Rs33.12 crore or 1st week collection of Rs157 crore, Chennai Expressraked in fabulous figures. In the second week also,the movie dampened business for the new biggie Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara!

SRK-Rohit Shetty's movie is also setting new records in the international arena.

Despite despite bad reviews Chennai Express broke all previous records.The movie has already crossed Rs157 crore in a week and was the fastest film to cross 100 crore in three days. The film boasts a glorious cast with all the right formulas to create a loaded masala entertainer that makes for a perfect family evening.

Before the release, SRK described it as a family entertainer and true to this, all the family members can thoroughly enjoy it together, thanks to its clean content.

Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara! got badly affected due to the Chennai Express wave. The weekend figures are below the mark, except in U.A.E.-G.C.C. where it has fared the best.

Chennai Express was released in as many as 3,500 screens in the domestic market, and 700 screens overseas. The promotion of the film was very well planned. Chennai Express, it's safe to say, has eaten into the share of Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara!

Raking in Raksha Bandhan, Shah Rukh Khan has created yet another innovative marketing strategy. As a promotional offer, Chennai Express gives out one free ticket for every two bought at cinemas all across India. 

As for the Box office updates till 19 August, 2013 the total amount collected was Rs185.73 crore.

Chennai Express has become the third highest grosser film ever in the overseas market, taking down Shah Rukh Khan's Jab Tak Hai Jaan from its fourth position.

On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan is on a record-smashing spree in UK as well. The film collected 258,598 on Friday, making it the highest opening day for a Hindi movie in UK. 

Coming to the opening day, Chennai Express collected Rs33.12 crore in India. With this, the film broke the previous held highest record by Ek Tha Tiger, which had opened at Rs32.93 crore. Obviously, the film broke Shah Rukh Khan's own earlier highest record, held by Ra.One at Rs.18.5 crore. As of now, Chennai Express holds the record of highest first day collections ever by a Bollywood movie.

 

FORTHCOMING RELEASES
With the effect of Chennai Express forthcoming films like Madras Cafe, which follows OUATIMDon August 23, is likely to get 2,300 screens.

Prakash Jha's political thriller Satyagraha, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor, which is again a UTV co-production like Chennai Express is also among the big future releases.

We will have to wait and watch whether these movies can outdo the mammoth parameterChennai Express has set.

For now SRK and Chennai Express Rocks.

And many of you thought it was me. Sorry I didn't make any MID to bash CE. If I wanted to, I'd do it openly. No need in making MIDS.
 
 
Nothing to bash here. Congrats to all SRK fans for your king's success. Party

Not many of you. It was just one person. I can't remember who. But some MID just made a thread saying SRK/DP are overrated and that watching CE is a waste. And one person accused the person of being you, and the MID denied it was you. I didn't pay attention to the thread after. LOL

17 Crores in 11 days. Seems hard, but not impossible. It'll be what... around 190ish after Tuesday? So 12 Crores in 10 days isn't impossible. But that's going by Taran's numbers. LOL

Chennai Express worldwide at 314 CRORE


Chennai Express, having smashed known-records at the box office, has now taken the Shah Rukh Khan - Salman Khan 'rivalry' to the next level. The latest Shah Rukh starrer has now surpassed Ek Tha Tiger's overall worldwide collections of Rs 310 crore in just ten days.

The film is now the second-highest grosser worldwide with Rs 314 crore collections after its second weekend. Ek Tha Tiger had grossed Rs 310 crore in its lifetime run.

Directed by Rohit Shetty and also starring Deepika Padukone, Chennai Express had a strong second weekend, collecting Rs 22.50 crore nett, taking the overall India business collections to Rs 168 crorenett. The film grossed Rs 5.50 crore on Friday of the week gone by, Rs 7.50 crore nett on Saturday and Rs 9.50 on Sunday.

The collections are the fourth highest ever for the second weekend after '3 Idiots' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' and 'Dabangg'. The film had already become the highest grosser ever in Nizam/Andhra and Tamil Nadu/Kerala after seven days; over the weekend, Mysore was added to the list and soon it will also become the highest grosser ever in West Bengal.

A tale of a north Indian man, who falls in love with the daughter of a don down south, 'Chennai Express'was heavily promoted by its cast and director across all quarters. It managed roaring business not just nationally but also on foreign shores, including via paid previews.

The movie was made on a budget of Rs 70 crore.
 
Chennai Express is now the fourth film to go over the Rs 300-crore mark in worldwide collections, after '3 Idiots', 'Ek Tha Tiger' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'. 

It is likely to be the second film to cross the Rs 350 crore-mark worldwide, even though Boxofficeindia.com analysts say the all-time record of Rs 392 crore (notched by Aamir Khan-starrer '3 Idiots') is out of reach.

The top all-time grossers worldwide are -

1. 3 Idiots - Rs 392 crore
2. Chennai Express - Rs 314 crore (after 2nd weekend)
3. Ek Tha Tiger - Rs 310 crore
4. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - Rs 301 crore
5. Dabangg 2 - Rs 250 crore

On Taran's figures CE will beat 3I easily 

But on BOI figure it will be a tight race to the finish.
