Chennai Express has only been in theatres for about 2 weeks and it’s become very evident of just how well the film is doing. The film starring Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan crossed the Rs. 200 crore mark quite quickly and has recorded crossing the Rs. 100 crore mark the fastest.
Back in 2009 3 Idiots which was directed by Rajkumar Hirani, broke the box office records having the highest grossing film. Over the past 4 years no film has been able to pass the iconic film, until now of course. Chennai Express has topped 3 Idiots at the box office breaking the unstoppable record.
Rohit Shetty has become very popular and successful being known as the movie king. All of his latest which includes Singham, Golmaal 3 and Bol Bachchan are all part of the Rs. 100 crore club. Taran Adarsh who is a well-known film trade analyst has even tweeted about Chennai Express, stating “Rohit Shetty becomes most successful director of Hindi cinema: 3 centuries and 1 double century. Four films that feature in 100 cr+ grossers!”
