Despite reduced number of shows, Chennai Express still managed to hold well. With approx 40-45% occupancy in the morning shows, it picked up quite decently in the evening and late night shows. The movie is expected to pick up in the weekends!

  1. OUATIMD, u are ruined. U r not only ruining yourself, u are also hindering Chennai Express from breaking 3 idiots record. So atleast serve some useful purpose and return your screens to CE so that more records may be broken.

  2. Reduced screen size makes no difference. U need big screen size only for good opening. 3 idiots did 202 crores with only 1300 screens. No reason why CE can’t do well now.

  3. 10 is strong number..though the oficial number may come 8.5 cr which is not bad and is a good indication for a healthy second weekend!

  4. power of a family movie made by king of masses,,king of romance and queen of acting in recent time…a family entertainer is always the first choice than the sadak6ap gangster story of a joker…

  5. dont b surprised if crosses 200 croore in 2nd week and its 2nd week earning will be more than ouatimd. i saw ouatimd aksay sucks as don really the movie needed like emmi. alot of mis cast.

  6. it is not possible with 1600 screen c e got 10.5cro the accupancy was only 30percent dont make fool indian people they r very educated command indian wake up u r still sleeping

    • actually CE had collected 19.6 crore with only 2500 screen. so it is possible that CE can easly collect 10 crore because on thursday also morning shows were 40% only. the film had picked up from the evening show. for the same reason friday collection is 10 crore+.

  7. w****.. so koimoi saying that CE occupancy is around 80% throughout the day..otherwise with 1500 screens how , a movie can collect 10.5 crore????

    • why this type of comments ????????????? bez of SRK power when koimoi giving some data than surely have proof before people like u never ask about another star collection accept the truth and still watch CE will brok 3 Idoits record within 15days

  8. dont underestimate the power of king khan …..10.5 crore is just amazing humongous collection now i am sure 3 idiots record will also be shattered and ouatimd will not be able to do a business of even 90 cr

    • No doubt king khan power came so late…almost 4 years.. so comparing it with 3 idiot doesnt worth it.. 3 idiots released with 1300 screens while CE 3700..
      So comparing it with aamir’s 3 idiots is shamefull for SRK. Also this CE is nt uto SRK level..while 3 idiots was a class movie..
