  • “If you dislike my film, Okay… if you like my film, Thank You!”

    Let’s start with the obvious question… Did you  expect Chennai Express to be such a big hit? Not at this speed and consistency. We heard the film, we liked it and we believed in it. Once we started making the film, various versions began to surface. Some said it would be a comedy and some said it would be an action film. So I told Rohit (Shetty) when we market the film, we’ll tell everyone that it’s a family film. There is also a love story in the film but when the audience saw the shot of me in a white shirt in the trailer, doing an action scene, they assumed it was an action film. When we saw the first cut, we all loved it. And we

  • Will Chennai Express Beat Ek Tha Tiger Opening Records?-BOI

    Q. Will Chennai Express Beat Ek Tha Tiger opening records? A. It will beat the three day figure for sure but opening day could prove to be difficult as North India will struggle to put up Ek Tha Tiger numbers which means you have to clear the Ek Tha Tiger figures in other circuits by clear margins and that is tough as Ek Tha Tiger put up very big numbers outside North as well. J. Ajaz Q. Would be it be correct to say its the entertainment tax free status of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag that has taken it to 100 crore? A. The film is looking to do 107-108 crore final business so its possible it would have got to 100 even without it being
