‘Chennai Express’ finally beats ’3 Idiots’

Chennai Express’ box office collections have yet again made it obvious that it’s the audience that can make or break a film at the ticket window.

Tweeting the box office collection numbers, well-known film trade analyst Taran Adarsh said, “Rohit Shetty becomes most successful director of Hindi cinema: 3 centuries and 1 double century. Four films that feature in 100 cr+ grossers!”

Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express has crossed the Rs. 200 crore mark in a very short period. In fact, it also crossed the 100 crore mark in the shortest time period.

Rohit Shetty’s understanding of the perfect ingredients for a typical masala Bollywood film clubbed with the business and marketing acumen of Shah Rukh helped Chennai Express thwart the records of Amir Khan’s 3 Idiots, which has been ruling the top grossers charts till date.

At the same time, with this success Rohit Shetty too has emerged as the Bollywood’s commercial movie king. Rohit Shetty’s four films including Singham, Golmaal 3, Bol Bachchan, have made it to the Rs 100 crore club.
