Acc to me...what matters is how many people are willing to watch the film..and not how many screens is it released on.


well said... ClapClap

Shah Rukh's 'Chennai Express' breaks records in Pakistan

The writer has posted comments on this articlePTI | Aug 19, 2013, 12.28 PM IST
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Chennai Express' has grossed rupees 40 million, breaking all box office records in Pakistan's biggest city after its release at the Eid weekend on August 9.

The action comedy film directed by Rohit Shetty also stars Deepika Padukone. "There is no doubt that 'Chennai Express' has become the biggest box office hit from India since the government allowed screening of Indian movies in the country," Mohammad Qadri the media spokesman for IMGC told PTI.

IMGC is the biggest distribution company in Pakistan with its offices based in Lahore and it imports Indian films via Dubai.

Qadri said that since its release in just eight screens in Karachi, ' Chennai Express' had grossed over 40 million rupees and the figure was mounting.

"I can't give the exact figures now but the initial estimate of ticket sales for the week since its release 'Chennai Express' has grossed over 40 million rupees. The figure will be higher when the final figures of ticket sales for all over Pakistan are available by Monday," Qadri said.

The previous record for highest grossing movie from India was held by Salman Khan's 'Dabangg' in Karachi.

Qadri said due to the high demand for tickets the cinema owners had also hiked prices for 'Chennai Express' and in some areas it was being screened in five to six shows in a day.

"Clearly the Pakistani people enjoy the movies of Shah Rukh Khan and its ticket sales exceeded expectations and it did much better than all the other Eid releases including some Pakistani movies and the Hollywood blockbuster, 'Wolverine'."

Pakistani film critics have also described the film as an entertaining time pass and one critic wrote, "The Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer is an aesthetically selected evolution of the 'Dabangg' genre."

Guys, how long does a movie shown at a theater in India from the released date? Does it vary from movie to movie?

Snapshot: 'Chennai Express' screened along with DDLJ at Maratha Mandir

Shah Rukh Khan, along with Rohit Shetty, took a trip down the memory lane as the two promoted their latest film 'Chennai Express' at Mumbai's Maratha Mandir theater. The movie theatre has been running daily shows of SRK's 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge' ever since it released in 1995. The longest running film has completed 900 weeks at the theatre. Incidentally, SRK's 'Chennai Express' pays tribute to DDLJ in many of its scenes. The actor and the filmmaker were seen interacting with fans on Thursday at the movie theater.
