SRK’s Chennai Express sets new recordCulture Desk
They say records are made to be broken. All eyes are set on big names like Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan to surpass the new success parameter set by Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Chennai Express - which has earned a whopping Rs.156.70 crore ($25 million) in its first week, reports Hindustan Times.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, Chennai Express, an approximately Rs. 75 crore joint production venture of UTV Motion Pictures and Red Chillies Entertainment, released on the auspicious occasion of Eid, raced its way to success and has become the film to score Rs. 100 crore fastest.
In fact, SRK, 47, who is relishing the success, believes that the no records matter, as they will be ‘equalled or bettered’ in a few months.
If Satyagraha is coming out on Aug 30, the last quarter of the year will see the release of Ranbir’s Besharam, Hrithik’s Krrish 3 and Aamir’s Dhoom 3 - all much-awaited and much-talked about projects.
Although the budgets of the four films have not been revealed, an insider said that estimated expenditure on Prakash Jha’s political thriller would be Rs.40 crore, while the budget of Abhinav Kashyap’s funny drama could be over Rs.50 crore.
