Chennai Express opened on its 1st Friday spectacularly at the Domestic Box Office. The film on its opening day alone has earned whooping 33.10 crores, smashing all previous highest opening day record of any film. With that the film’s total income already rests at 39.85 crores, adding the film’s collections from its preview shows.

SRK has seen a release after last year’s Yash Chopra directorial Jab Tak Hai Jaan. And being a star of his magnitude, the response is naturally huge and overwhelming.

Chennai Express till yesterday evening had earned over 30 crores and adding the earnings from night shows the film made a magnanimous total beating Salman’s record of highest opening day collections from last Eid when Ek Tha Tiger made 32.92 crores on its Day 1.

Since there is an unsaid competition between the stars, box office numbers have marginally favoured SRK over Salman this time.

  22. CE has been released in more screens and also the price of the tickets has increased since last year…so just few lakhs more is not a big deal…but it will not break ek tha tiger lifetime record of 199 crores as word of mouth and reviews are not good….

  23. Acting fantastic…Comedy fantastic…Action awesome…Perfomances fantastic…Really nice love story…Srk rahul avtar rockkks again…
    Srk the king of bollywood break salman’s ek tha tiger first day record…SRK rockkks as his romantic hero image again…

    So please go and watch and enjoy this fully entertainment movie.
    Rohit shetty and his team is totaly rocking work this time.
    Shahrukh Deepika Rockkkkkks….

  24. i don’t uanderstand why you all people get on comparing with srk and salman. if u took a step towards past i mean 6-8 years back or u may can look from 1998-2010 , u wii never see salman khan in bollywood with srk. by doing some dhoom dhadaka movie no one get the star title. so my dear all salman fan (un educated fellow) at least try to respect our kig one and only srk. proud do be a srkin.

  25. sallu fans now wont get sleep…..masala movies karoge to collection hoga hi when it features big stars….that only sallu is doing again and again….do a film like MNIK then show your power sallu…if you succeed then everybdy will respect you.

  26. are yaar 3700 screens pe release hui aur ticket price bhi 20% badhaye toh aise hoga hi na ett ki occupancy 95%+ thi aur ce ki occupancy 90%+ hain so overall ett is winner

  27. I think Shahrukh is being overrated here. Deepika played a huge part in its success!! But congrats to the CE team :)

  28. and to all sallu fans now you are fighting for him and too loyal to him…whatever he serves you all go blindly….where you all were when he was struggling at box-office continuously for years???and back to back flops were coming???

  29. BHAI srk ki ce do kodi ki movie hai ett was far much btter than ce n i promise that iska record to krrish 3 hi araam se todd degi n in december when aamir’s dhoom 3 is going 2 arrive d3 is going 2 earn above 50 crore on its first day n that’s my promise

  30. aise bol rahe ho next year jaise ki salman ki hi movie aayegi aur SRK ki nai aayegi…sallu ke fan sab lallu hi hote hain kabhi dimaag se nai sochte …saayad happy new year, don3 ye toh bhool hi gaye honge….

  31. For those people who are saying that ticket prices are high, SRK ki itni following hai k log mehangy tickets khareed kar bhi usy dekhny aye and occupancy 90%+ rahi….this is called real star power.

    • r u fahrn akhtr..by making don 2 nd feel guilty..go nd take a deep slleep bro..and see the crowd when kick &D3 realeases

  33. ppl here talkng about krish pehle release to hne do usko phir baat karna….aur salman fan dekh price itna bada h phirbhi log high price mein ce dekhne gya h….aur record bhi sallu ka hi toda h so jab nxt sallu ka mve ayega tab uchaalna..its tym fr srk…highest grossing in one day.we love u king khan.

  34. agar CE sallu bhai ka movie hota to pehle din me hi 40 crore uthaleta..overseas ko maro goli..sahrukh agar tom cruj ki openg day rcord tor de to phir overseas market ki awaz lagana..salman aur amir agar madam tussue ke agreement ko accept kar liya hota to overseas me woh duno hi chaye rehte..na ki maaaa.kiraaaan…..yeeeee samjhe

  40. Pta hai SRK k dusmano,
    SRK ko “KING OF THE BOLLYWOOD” kyun kaha jata hai,
    jakar “CHENNAI EXPRESS” movie dekh phir pta chalega,kyun kaha jata “KING OF BOLLYWOOD”.
    SRK has BROKE the record of BOX OFFICE COLLECTION in 21st century.eeeeeeeppppppppppppp:)
    SRK i m Big Fan of u,u r ideal,i wanna become lyk of u SRK,
    I LOVE YOU SRK:)…..

  41. I’m a super salman fan. Any way I congrates SRK & his fans. but remember dabangg coming to deliver biiiiggeeest blockbusters back to back.the records which are going to be set by him will be untouchable for any superstar.

  42. srk ka fan logo…tu lok dekhte jaa dhoom 3 is Christmas me kya karne waale hain..@ 2013 me dekho aamir ka jalwa…@

  43. Ett total no. Of screens 3300 n made near about 33 cr on first day
    ce total no. Of screens 3700 n plus 20% high raue on ticket n made 33.12 cr so guys salman is clear winner

  44. All u lallu sallu’s fan just keep ur mouth shut, our hero our king shahrukh has showed that people still love him and want him
    my advise to shahrukh now do only ce type masala movies

  45. Is there anyone in the world who watched chennai express 5 times till friday and booked 2 shows for saturday?? IF NOT, Then I am the biggest fan of king khan!!!

  46. Great movie.Srk is awsome..rocks..no one can be like srk..not salman not ranbir..nor hrithik..aamir nd amitji unke equal he kyuki wo dil se kaam krte he srk ki tarah..tbhi to 1 king he dusra perfactionist nd tisra shahanshah..lv u shahrukh.
    Srk ki kuch movies k role ko pura bollywood kbhi nhi bhul payega..

  47. Who can never touch srk star power.he is the king of bollywood in 20 year is back with chennai express sab ki band bajaneko salo salman ke kuktto .sala ledki ke piche bhag ta rehta he .srk jisko dekh ta bo khud hi pat jata he.

  48. Ce crossed so called untouchable record of opening day.Krish have no solid fan faver.And Amir’s last film was Big Flop.

  49. awesome movie..not behalf or against anyone.,but to be honest Chennai Express is a nice movie and deserves justice..Rohit, srk and dp have really worked hard,you can sense it on the screen..a complete entertainment package..this movie has been already declared as blockbuster in some sites..good work CE TEAM.. :-)

  50. According to other sites it has failed to beat the record read boxoffice india which actually gives a breakdown of figures. This site seems to be a paid pro SRK site. NaachGaana also gives a different picture to koimoi. Don’t blindly follow this site as when the facts come out you will end up eating humble pie.

    • boss BOI distributer collection deta hain…aur woh bhi not all single screen ya state like jharkhand is not even mentioned there..aur BOI ETT ka collection 30 cr de raha hain…manoge kya…aur ETT lifetime 184 cr..ye manoge kya??so trust the producer house data which is actual collection

  51. no matter what box office sites (like box office india) or any other critics say.but it is the official figures which are considered worldwide.and the figures from utv will remain official whether they even say it 50 crore for saturday,the world has to accept it.and 33 is the official figure.so accept it.boi is not universally accepted.so do not post boi figures.

  52. i’m a fan of the bollywood khans and though i love salman i’m okay with chennai express records. i mean this year it’s chennai express but last year it was our tiger. every one his turn it is/ i would also love to see shahrukh khan and salman khan together as friends.

    chennai express was really fun

  53. deepika shows that she can act in chennai express. she was soo much fun a,d the temple part with shahrukh khan was so awesome. movie is reallyy lots of fun :D

  54. deepika in chennai express was awesome. the accent of hers made the movie soo great. just wanted to hear her talking. shahrukh khan in the second half was amazing

  55. deepika in chennai express was awesome. the accent of hers made the movie soo great. just wanted to hear her talking. shahrukh khan in the second half was amazing

  56. those talking about komal nahta his figures are always different he tweeted that ek tha tiger made 29 something crore and not 30.9 crore like we all know was published .he did the same with chennai expres. guess he does not include soem figures that official made

  57. just seen chennai express and have to say shahrukh khan and deepika do more comedy movies like chennai express. they both were soo much fun in it :D

  58. 33.12 cr in india, paid preview 6.75, total ovrseas include paid preview 22.95 cr…… total 62.72 cr on first day….nd Ett 32.61+2.13( preview)+6.8 in overse as… total41.54 cr…….. this is the power of king.. srk beat sallu’ s record with huge margin of 21.18 crore,……….. INCREDIBLE
    (ab rona band karo Lallu. boht business ki batein kr rhe they tum Lallu k duffer lallu fans. ab collections ginte jaiye aur roote jaiye..)

  59. srk is best in the world. chennai express will surely cross 200 cr. Sab dekne jayoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  60. Although Ce is good.., bt Salman is today’s only suprstar who can earn mst in bollywood……..nd raha baat jail jane ki toh wahnkhade ka bhool gaye ho kya..?? Saala marr khate khate bacha nd cigaratte smoking (kind of chodu) inside vips room…lol srk mah foot..! Salman iZ d only Dabbang..

  61. Please do not spread false news. Chennai express net collections on day 1 are 29.25 crores while ETT was 30.5 crores. There ought to be a legal complaint against this article as it is misleading the public. All readers and also over excited news channels check number one only authentic site … boxofficeindia.com

  62. bhot acha film hai. gana samajh nahi paye.es film main romance,payer,comidy,action. sab mashala hai.SRK IS THE GODD. KHAN always khan hai.best of luck sharukh.

  63. i havent watched the movie yet, but the kind of response from the audience has made me to rush towards the theatres and will soon go and enjoy the movie.The trailors and the songs are already blockbosters…..!

  64. i am trully salman fan,and if salman himself will watch chennai express he will definitly applaud it. Entertainment with good acting by srk and dp.

  65. Irrespective of the figures whether high or low (though differnce is jst so nominal if we consider 29.5 cr of C.E) thing z SRK fans are sensible sophisticated like him always talk positive dont take digs on any one. But every salman fan practically is harsh n abusive no matter on which ever site u go u’l find salman fans abusing jst rubbish. Which is not gud SRK is the King the 1st ever geniune GLOBAL SUPERSTAR yar. GLOBAL MEAN HE IS KNOWN AS THE TRUE AMBASSADOR OF INDIA WORLDWIDE PEOPLE WHO DONT KNOW INDIA KNOW IT ONLY BCUZ OF SRK. he is a gentleman heart throb of billions of people in the world has fans more than Tom Cruise n dats nt the thing u achieve in a day. So respect him dude,both these are superstars have unimaginable fan following but u gotta give respect to who deserve it. stay positive. Peace

    • correct.. shahrukh fans are so calm and handle any discussion with care and without abuse. check a site of salman fans , they are like hell

  66. Boss komal natha twitter gives figure of 29 yet his website which is not monitored or official is giving fake numbers. UTV have a vested interest in hiking up figures and are not impartial. As for SRK fans these are the exact movies they criticized Salman for and now he has come to same level for success. Suddenly SRK fans approve of this type of film. Hypocrites.

    • but not only dis site, all other sites are giving 33 cr…

  74. Lets make it more clear for everybody. Everybody year in sweden loves shahrukh and the way he acts. He can do whatever roll he has in the movie. He has got this acting talent. Salaman is just a shit actor. The only thing he can do is show his muscles. How many filmfare awards his salman? Zero and its something he will never get for showing his muscles
