Chennai Express collected a huge 29.25 crore nett on day one and took its collection to 35.25 crore nettincluding the paid previews. The film set new records in the South India markets and Bihar.It is the second highest collection of all time behind the Ek Tha Tiger figure of 30.50 crore nett approx. The collections are out of this world in the South India markets while rest of India has seen excellent figures.
North India which could have been lower has scoredwell. East Punjab is comparatively lower if we compare with Ek tha Tiger but Delhi/UP is almost the same though it is due to fact that Ek Tha Tiger was released Pre-Eid and UP does not collect as well in that period. Mumbai and Central India territories have fantastic figures.

Well the collection is terrific and it looks that CE will be the first film to cross 20 crores consecutively in first 3 days may be 25 crores.And we should also consider paid preview impact on first day collections.
