Chennai Express Heads for Huge 300 crore Worldwide. SRK joins Aamir, Salman and Ranbir.

Shah Rukh Khan name is taken in same league of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan at Box Office, and there is a reason for that. Reason both three are still ruking after 2 long decades at box office. 

If one considers overseas market then SRK is even ahead of his feared arch rivals by a long margin. But in recent years because of his below par performance at Indian Box Office (less than expected standard of SRK) both his rivals has zoomed ahead in Worldwide market. Anyways still SRK was ruling Overseas, but have to fight it out in Indian Market for a film that can be proud of its box office achievement in recent years. But all question is put to rest with superlative performance of Chennai Express. 

Whatever be the film content, critics review, but no one can deny the superb success of Chennai Express in Indian and Overseas market. That means audiences are just loving the movie and that is more important. Film has made profit in all nook and corner of the world and literally almost all have made profit with the film be it producers, distributors, exhibitors or Chai-Wala in front of the Cinema Hall.

Shah Rukh Khan has big hits in JTHJ and Don 2 in recent times, but can't be said as same level of hits as a 3 Idiots or ETT or Dabangg Series. Come 2013 another new Kapoor clan called Ranbir Kapoor challenged this Khan Trio with his Mega Hit in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. 

Now coming to the point Chennai Express is soon going to join the league of 3 Idiots, Ek Tha Tiger and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani as it is on verge of crossing 300 crore Worldwide. CE has collected around 215+ crore gross (approx) from India Theatrical alone and has collected around 72 crore gross (approx) from Overseas. That means film is standing at around 287 crore gross worldwide and is certain to cross 300 crore gross by the end of 2nd weekend. It is now chasing 3 Idiots 385 crore, Ek Tha Tiger 322 crore and YJHD 305.5 crore worldwide gross. Looking from trends there should not be any difficulty in crossing ETT and YJHD worldwide mark in coming days. Only question is whether it can touch or surpass the 3 Idiots worldwide mark of 385 crore. Honestly, its looks improbable right now. That means CE will settle for 2nd position in all time worldwide grosser after 3 Idiots and ahead of Ek Tha Tiger and YJHD.

This is no mean achievement by any means for Chennai Express as many of SRK detractors are saying that he is going downhill. They should now be questioning themselves as SRK has literally proved that he has lot of steam left in his kitty still. 

Looks like even after 2 decades this 'Khan Trio' are battling out for the top position with a certain 'Kapoor' following there doorstep with a promising start. There goes a saying 'Khan Rules' in Bollywood and why it is said is the above reason. With Chennai Express joining 3 Idiots, ETT and YJHD in 300 crore club league, only these 3 top Khans will have movies which will be in this elusive club at the moment with an exception of Ranbir Kapoor who is also sitting pretty. Yes, Hrithik Roshan with Krrish 3 has a definite chance of joining this Khans, but that is a later chapter to be discussed.
