Chennai Express has indeed surpassed Koimoi’s expectations by picking up pace greater than what we had expected. For its preview shows, we had estimated an earning of 5 crores, but the film saw its actuals at 6.75 crores at the Box Office.

On its opening day, the film contradicted our approximates by a wide margin as the film made an earning of 33.10 crores at the domestic box office. Given our estimates of 25 crores, the film smoothly superseded the same.

Now for Day 2, or its 1st Saturday, we had expected a 20% growth from its Day 1 which is usual for all films. And hence now, the range has increased to an approximate of 40 crores on Day 2 given the response on its 1st day.

For day 3, the film should see a 15% pickup from its Saturday numbers. And now the film should easily earn in the range above 46 crores.

So the film might venture into the 100 crore club by the conclusion of its 1st Sunday itself. Hence going by its pace and day-on-day growth, there’s a chance the film might simply reach the 100 crore club in merely 3 days even by excluding its paid preview collections altogether. Hitting a new hilt of record, this SRK film will create new shattering records at the box office.

With the hike in ticket prices at multiplexes all over India and single screens running housefull persistently, this isn’t a tough feat to attain for the film that has began its run with thumping strength.

    • All of the trade analysts have given their report card and the collection is above 33 crore. Yet you are still hanging on to boxofficeindia cause it gave a favorable result for you sallu fans. Come on man, why don’t you ask sallu, even he will agree that his record is gone. Accept it, its not a shame.

    • Never visit They are the number 1 fraud site. They decrease the collections of all films. The site was taken down many times for this reason.

  3. I don’t think movi will grow on saturdy & sunday beacuse of huge opening day the movie will felldown 15% to 20% on 2nd & 3rd day, every big grosser movie movie fell on 2nd & 3rd day as ett, dabang2, bodyguard…CE is nice movie with superb entertnment..enjoy it…

  4. 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..)

  5. Plz. Stop lying koimoi. How much srk paid for false report. According to boxoffice india. CE not even cross 30 crore. Stop dreaming 100 3 day

  6. Are bhai
    1st day housefull tha isliye itna collection hai. This is the max collection. Now collection vil b low day by day.

  7. All those who are confused with the conflicting reports of Chennai Express first day collections :-
    CE – 33.10 crores
    ETT – 32.93 crores
    Both the above are producer’s figures
    CE – 29 crores
    ETT – 30.25 crores
    Both these are distributor’s figures
    Hope doubt cleared.

  8. Except boxofficeindia other entire internet media in the world telling Chennai express beat ek tha tiger record. This clearly shows salman/aamir khan bought boxofficeindia website and thretened them to give less wonder why that website was down for 2 days!!

    King khan is only SRK rulling bollywood since 90’s consistently…. he has no major flop movies like salman.. SRK has a graph going up smoothly unlike aamir khan whose 3 idiots sky rocketed but his last solo release talaash cant even cross 100 crores in its lifetime…this is such a shame to so called perfectionist!!. His dhoom3 wil break records ofcourse but again it was already a hit franchise!! no credit goes to aamir khan because his biggest hit 3idiots also scored only 11-13crores on its first day!!! this is the fact!

  9. Listen to all frnds the chennai express broke the ek tha tiger record nd will be on tommorow the chennai express also come in 100crs club nd u remembered frnds ek tha tiger came in 100crs club in 4th day so to all r accepting nw the real king in bollywood is SRK who broke a record with 32.12cr on was opening day.. So happy eid frnds enjoy weeked with the blockbuster movie chennai express
    hurrrrrr rey

  10. its 2nd day business around 25 cr.normally big grosser movies fell on 2nd, 3rd day,, CE is True entertainment must watch.

  11. Lol, have you lost your mind? No movie can earn such a big number on Saturday, Friday was a national holiday and that’s why the movie opened that big.

    • SRK is indeed not an action hero and can never be. He should avoid action films. And even romantic films are now difficult because he is old now. But he should do comedy films like Chennai Express because he is really good at comedy.

  12. Chennai express promo was good so all went to see that film… But chennai express was worst … Shahkukh film ra_ one and chennai film both are worst hai

  13. EK THA TIGER 2nd collections were 14 crores but CE had doubled it that’s 28 crores.Which means that the movie is best

  14. king khan baap nikla salman ka isliye BAAP BAAP HOTA HAI chennai express is smashing many records it crossed 100 crore in only 3 days breaks all records in just 1 day !!!!! SUPER DUPER HIT MOVIE!!!! CHENNAI EXPRESS MUST WATCH T

  15. admin u r the biggest joker i have seen n your post explained dat u hv lost your mind….u made so esy to achieve 46 crore although everyone knows friday collection will b best of odr days whethr it is satrdy or sunday….aftr friday (eid) defintly it hs to drop by 10-15% and sundy collection will b almost to satrday……so 85cr will b range..aftr dat it wl come to 14…13…12…11..8..9..10…..etc its going to be one of the biggest hit bt atleast u should be some logical…

  16. SHAHRUKH is the KING of bollywood from 16 year
    Therefore it has no comparison with superstar of only 2 or 3 years like SALMAN KHAN
    Ab salman khan ko me manta hu k wo CE ka 3 din me 100 crore bussines ka record torta ha ya nhi

    • Salman- Sharukh Jitni gadi bhagani h bhagale,

      Hrithik Jitna tje hwa mai udna h Ud le

      Aamir tje jitni dhoom machani h machale

      Us k bad tum sb dkhna kitne mental meri mvie dkhne ayenge………..

      Salman is Salman

  17. some of my friend told that he is not a action hero he don’t have proper body . let me tell u he is martial artist . vaise bhi laden ke liye kaleza chahiye .

  18. everyone use to say he cannot do masala movie(like ready, SOS, Golmaal, Rowdy Rathore) now he did it and proved also smashing all records. now rest of the masala actors has to prove themselves by doing some serious and romantic movies like SRK. lets see who is king and who is kitten…!
