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.
