As predicted by ApunKaChoice, Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone’s new movie Chennai Express has broken one box office record on the eve of its worldwide Eid release.

The film, directed by Rohit Shetty, raked in a whopping Rs. 6.75 crore net from the Thursday paid previews in India, breaking the previous record of Rs. 2.70 crore held by 3 Idiots. That’s not it. The film set a new record in the UK as well with 142,220 pounds on Thursday. The response is no less roaring in Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.

Chennai Express ran to packed houses in the cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai. Just yesterday, we had told you that cinemas chains in these cities were screening a record number of paid previews for the film.
