I have been saying that since it's release...SRK is on the same level as Sushant in terms of starpower.

Yeah, and Sholay was Dhanno's film.
HAHK was that pomeranian's film
Gadar was handpump's film
3 Idiots was Vaccume Cleaner's film
Gajini was Treadmill's film

But one thing is sure, it doesn't matter whose film it was, it's for sure that if it wasn't for CE, you still would be giving movies like ATB & BB, your identity was nothing more than the director of Golmaal, and Singham, don't forget who made you from director of those movies into the brand Rohit Shetty.

BTW Still waiting for Superishtaarni Deepika to give more than 5 crs opening solo.
Also waiting for you to give a record breaking opening, of wait, no SRK, no party.

Chennai Express is the biggest blockbuster of Rohit when shahrukh demolished weekend record worldwide by 60 crores.Chennai Express and Dilwale are biggest hits of Rohit worldwide

by Location Scout (3.5k points)

Is dilwale hit? If a film is not hit in domestic market it is not considered hit worldwide also.

Put any other actress in CE , the film won't be same . Truly speaking SRK's acting was little over the top and irritating to watch ..the opening was due to SRK but the film crossed 200crs due to terrific comic timing of Deepika Padukone.

by Director (123k points)

Opening was bcoz of srk rohit combo with deepika performance in trailer..n honey singh lungi dance with rajni fans played major role in opening

i Agree With Rohit Shetty But One Question I Ask You Without Shahrukh Khan Can Movie Open That Kind Of Response because credit goes to deepika but after the success of the film but opening wise its shahrukh khan film. and opening define stardom.

many people says that darr was srk film because srk performance is far more appreciated but again i que. if sunny deol not there in the movie can movie open bumper response. because credit to baad mein milta hai movie release or success ke baad first day to actor ke naam se opening milta hai.


by Production Accountant (24.1k points)

no opening min. 15-20 cr at that movie also.




bhai ghanta likhne se kuch nahi hota srk ki har movie kam se kam 15 cr ki opening jarur leti hai. ye such hai chahe to check kar le. main srk ka favour nahi le raha but jo sach hai wo hai.


I taught sarcasm.. well both jhms n zero was universal friendly genre it took 15cr 18cr opening in 2017 n 2018 with gst.. if we go by 2013 rates those are 8 11cr openers with universal genre..if we appy finding funny buzz n rates of hindi dubb movie that wil bring to 5cr opening.. Coming to finding funny pls go n check abt that movie.. its not even hindi movie its hindi dubbed movie with zero buzz n universality trailer still it took 5cr opening that say it all.. before ce deepika gave yjhd with ranbir then ramleela with ranveer.. yjhd had record non holiday n ramleela had 15cr non holiday... finding funny was lesser appeling movie than dear zindagi wch had only 8cr opening in 2016 wher they treated has alia srk movie..

It's known as respecting the rising sun. SRK'S time is bad hence everyone has the guts to take him on like this.

by Director (132k points)

Can't agree with him, SRK was the main lead actor and Deepika the main lead actress.
Both are responsible for the success.

He also said G3 was kareena, ratna पाठक, mithun film and lol ajay is his best friend so he is not taking a dig at SRK, just stating facts.
Ofcourse film wouldn't halve collected that much if it wasn't for deepika's performance she brutally overshadowed srk in that film.

RoHIT Masss Shetty Nei Aag Laga Di Hai
Ab Iska Dhua Bahut Door Tak Jayega

Pehli Baar Aisa Hua Hai Ki Kisi Director Nei Apne Hi Actor Se Credit Cheen Liya Ho
Aisa Kaam Toh Normally BOI Karta Hai

Anyways Facts Also Prove It, Deepika Without Srk Has 250 Crs Grosser And Srk Without Deepika Doesnt Has 150 Crs Grosser, Deepika Also Was More Appreciated For Chennai Express Performance Wise.

Ofcourse Having Said All This Srk Is A Big Superstar And Deepika Just A Big Star And Deepika Was Just A Star When Chennai Express Released And Srk Was Then Also A Top Superstar, No Comparison On Basis Of Entire Career Box Office Stats As Deepika Is Way Behind Srk!
