Chennai Express has officially crossed 400 crore gross Worldwide and thus, become first ever film to do so in Bollywood. Yes, there are three films in 300 crore gross Worldwide 3 Idiots, Ek Tha Tiger and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani but none in 400 club. Thus, Chennai Express does the unthinkable crossing 400 crore Worldwide and has emerged as the biggest grosser ever there.
Film is expected to do business of 220+ crore nett in India. That means gross collection of around 285 crore from India itself. Plus, film has collected additional 119 crore ($ 19 Million) from Overseas as actuals are received. That means film cumulative gross is around 404 crore and still collecting significant specially in Overseas Market.
This is something exceptional and real praiseworthy of sorts. Shah Rukh Khan has put himself ahead of his rivals specially the Khans and emerged a Numero Uno star Worldwide with Chennai Express. He has set benchmark which will be very difficult to break in coming days.
