Of course Deepika and SRK are all smiles after ‘Chennai Express’s monster weekend….

Well, it looks like Shah Rukh Khan has done it again as his latest film , ‘Chennai Express‘, is now the fastest Bollywood movie to join the 100 Crore ( $16.36 million) club and the only one to do so in its first weekend in theaters.  SRK’s co-star Deepika Padukone continues to have a career year as this is her third hit of 2013 along with ‘Race 2‘ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘.

When responding to critics who say perhaps this just happens to be Deepika’s charmed year in film she said “If people are saying it’s my year, it depends on my films… I think these things are relative. It feels nice to hear or to read about it. But, more importantly, I have been working really hard. I know I have pushed myself and sacrificed a lot of personal and family time. But in the end if the result is like this, you don’t mind. But, yes, I think success is relative.”

And how did SRK himself feel about the film’s impressive numbers?  Well, he said “It’s just a number but I am happy that it’s done well and it’s after a long time I have done a film that all have watched. I have yet to see the film with the audience but it feels great...” when referring to the historically significant 100 crore mark the film raced past in its first weekend of release.

The film also managed to rake in money in foreign markets outside India, debuting at #13 in the U.S. film market with an impressive 18.35 crores ($2.25 million) take.  Director Rohit Shetty has to be considered one of the hottest Bollywood directors going with the success of ‘Chennai Express‘ hot on the heels of also successful ‘Bol Bachchan‘.

What does Salman Khan, who ever since 2008 usually releases a movie on Eid, think about the abdication of his August movie throne to King Khan?  Although he’s stayed mum in public, Salman has had to deal with numerous production problems on his latest film ranging form a co-star being charged with kidnapping to his own legal woes so seeing his rival do so well can’t sit well with the thespian.  We’ll just have to wait until next year to see if Salman’s 2014 film ‘Mental‘, which has been plagued by these delays during shooting, will return him back to the top of the heap….

Director Rohit Shetty is banking on another 100 Crore (roughly $17.2 million) smash hit in his latest film ‘Chennai Express‘ featuring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.  The film is the first re-teaming of the legendary SRK and Deepika since 2007’s hit ‘Om Shanti Om‘.  Deepika, for one, feels much more at ease around SRK and says that this time the two interact “more freely”.
