Chennai Express Has Phenomenal Sunday
The weekend has seen all records smashed as the film will easily go over 90 crore nett for the weekend including paid previews. South India has seen just phenomenal collections while the rest of India is extraordinary. Every circuit has smashed all records for the weekend.
The film has held collections in roughly the same range over the first three days at very high levels which has never been done before Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani held up for 3 days at the 20 crore range but this has done it closer to the 30 crore nett range.

BOI numbers are lower by around 8crrs compared to Taran...Taran says it did break OD record while BOI says it didn't. Anyways it shouldn't matter whether OW is 92crrs or 100crrs...the OW record figures are just monstrous and shatters everything by huge margin.
Thu previews 6.75 cr, Fri 33.12 cr, Sat 28.05 cr, Sun 32.50 cr. Total: 100.42 cr nett. MONSTROUS Weekend... India biz only.

Chennai Express Heads For Record Non Holiday Monday
Chennai Express has held very strongly on Monday and may set a new record for business on Monday when it has not fallen on a holiday. The highest collection for a Monday is Ek Tha Tiger with 19 crore nett approx but it was a holiday for Bassi Eid while the highest non holiday Monday is Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani at 12.75 crore nett.
The Monday collections of Chennai Express look set to challenge the Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani figure. There will be a fall from the Friday figures as that was a national holiday but the collection itself for Monday will be huge and amongst the top three collections for a Monday be it holiday or non holiday Monday.

Honestly I'm only looking forward for Dhoom3! Hope D3 will be 2013's highest grosser!
As I had predicted yesterday: http://www.koimoi.co...ease-on-sept-6/
YRF’s Dhoom 3 that has been kept under strict surveillance so much so that the film’s team is unaware of the exact details of when will the film’s poster or teaser release! News has it that YRF will apparently release the film’s promo with their upcoming flick Shuddh Desi Romance on Sept. 6.
However, the makers haven’t made an official announcement on the same!
