Finally SRK magic is back again. Shahrukh Khan starer Chennai Express has broke several records on box office and if that was not enough the film is all set to become the highest grossing bollywood film of all time. If this happens then it will be like a prayer listened for SRK fans and another star added to the reputation of King Khan. Currently Aamir Khan Starrer 3 Idiots hold the reputed position of ‘Highest Grossing Bollywood Film of All time’. Back in 2009 when 3 Idiots become the top earning Hindi film of all time, Film pundits and fans alike commented that this record could only be broken by the Baadshah of Bollywood – Shahrukh Khan. But from Rab ne Bana di Jodi to Jab tak hai Jaan no SRK film was able to even give a competition to the Aamir Khan Blockbuster.
On the other hand, Another Khan, Salman Khan gave back to back Blockbusters with Wanted, Dabangg, Bodyguard, Ready, Ek tha tiger and Dabangg 2. Even though Salman become the highest grossing Bollywood actor of all time yet he himself was not able to break the record of 3 Idiots (Though Ek tha Tiger came very close). If Salman didn’t then Why people are expecting from SRK starer Chennai Express to become the highest grossing bollywood film of All time? The answer if quiet obvious. After a long time SRK showed his real baadshahat at the Box office. Directed by Rohit Shetty, Chennai Express become the fastest earning film by earning 100 crore rs in just 4 days. 3 Idiots entered this prestigious club in 9 days. Chennai express thus took less than half a days. The film has already become the top grossing film of the year by crossing Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani’s box office collection. It is near the 200 crore mark right now and there is no big film coming (except John Abraham’s Madras Cafe, another film named on the city Chennai). Chennai Express already affected the collection of Akshay Kumar starer Once Upon a Time In Mumbai Dobara, so no Actor or director is daring to compete with SRK right now. So this train is expected to continue its journey uninterruptedly.
Deepika Padukone the leading actress of Chennai express has become the hot sensation of the year. First she starred in the first 100 crore film of 2013 – Race 2 and then she starred Opposite Ranbir Kapoor in the Blockbuster Romantic comedy film Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani and now she is on the high tide of success with her latest blockbuster Chennai Express.
It will be interesting to see if Chennai express be able to beat 3 Idiots record. Even if it do so, Was it epic like 3 Idiots? For how long the record will be held? Don’t forget that the 3 most awaited Bollywood film of 2013 are yet to be released – Ranbir Kapoor;s Besharam, Hrithik Roshan’s Krissh 3 and above all Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer DHOOM 3 which is already predicted to become the highest grossing film of all time.
