Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express seems to be unstoppable when it comes to creating new records at the box office.

SRK and Deepika Padukone starrer has made a new record by collecting over 270 cr worldwide. Till Monday (19th August) the collections of Chennai Express at the box office in India had reached 185.73 cr and the overseas collection of the film is around 90 cr in two weeks.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#ChennaiExpress [Week 2]: Fri 6.50 cr, Sat 8.51 cr, Sun 10.22 cr, Mon 3.80 cr. Grand total: Rs 185.73 cr. SUPERB... Note: India biz only."

SRK made everyone keen to watch his entertainer by giving the audience a special offer to buy two and get one ticket free on the day of Rakshabandhan. The collections on 20th August would have surely increased by such an offer by King Khan and the figures are still awaited.

Chennai Express made with a budget of 75 cr became the fastest 100-cr earner in the history of Indian cinema. — TOI

correctly said .......no matters what will happen to the people who watching movie in second week....i saw o.s.o. first day first show and i believed SRK is the best but after CE i became so sad neither it look like SRK film(highly romance) nor It belongs to Rohit Shetty(highly action).....SRK should learn comedy from Akshay and action from ajay and akshay......SRK break millions heart 100 cr club is Bullshit if audience is not entertained

For other performing has been now and then, SRK the most consistent in Indian Cinema after Bachan Sahib and Dilip Sahib, We didn't see Aamir for years and same with other, I can hardly remember anyone else to be so motivated to entertain public, no matter what form, hosting shows, sport shows, sense of humor, humble, what else are you asking for, come on guys get a grip.

Rohit setty himself admitted that he makes movies for mass entertainment; not for intellectuals. And inspite of lots of insane & indigestible things, this movie is indeed entertaining...that's why it has broken all the record.. I enjoyed it...!!! :)
