Now that the hype around Chennai Express has finally died down, buzz is that the film’s box office collections have been exaggerated. The SRK-Deepika starrer film earned a mere Rs. 202 crores and not the number everyone was told.
Off late, gossip mills have been working over time to churn out rumors about SRK exaggerating the numbers of the film, expecting everyone to believe that Chennai Express made a total of Rs. 250 crores. Apparently, king Khan was keen on breaking his rival Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots record of Rs. 190 crores. Hence the addition of those extyra numbers.
Few months post release of Chennai Express, Krrish 3 released and had apparently made big bucks, around Rs. 500 crores. Now, this didn’t go down well with Shahrukh, as the limelight on his film was shared.
Hey, but then buzz about Krrish 3 numbers being exaggerated were also doing rounds.. Right?
