Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone-starrer Chennai Express is chugging on with massive steam at the worldwide box office. Chennai Express has surpassed every expectation in last 3 days. Movie recorded best preview figures, best initial day and best Second day figure followed by best weekend figure too.
Chennai Express has earned nearly 100.42 Cr nett at the Indian box office and worldwide collections around 144.67 after 3 days. Thus, Chennai Express has shattered all opening records at the domestic Box Office. The movie has taken the biggest opening in Paid Preview, Initial Day and now Initial Weekend. Also, Chennai Express is the only movie ever to collect over 30 crore nett in 2 different days. Sunday collections are close to the same level with opening day.
Compared to Saturday, collections were far better on Sunday, despite Saturday collections being big. Occupancy on Sunday was almost same as on opening day with little variation in some places. The real test of Chennai Express will begin from Monday that is today. If movie sustains well on Monday and say Tuesday, then every record is in danger and fresh records will be the box office benchmark.
