Rohit Shetty’s masala entertainer is placed ahead of critically acclaimed movies like Les Meserables, The Conjuring and Argo
Chennai Express might have bagged mixed reviews with some critics even calling the action-comedy movie-starring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles-boakwaas and over-hyped venture of the year, but there’s no escaping the fact that the movie set the box office on fire. SRK’s fans flocked to the nearest theatre to watch the Rohit Shetty’s masal entertainer and that helped the production garnered unbelievable moolah.
And now the blockbuster film has managed to get a spot in Google Zeitgeist’s list. In fact, Chennai Express is the only Indian movie to have been placed in that coveted list of the top trends of 2013. Almost shockingly, CE has been placed at the 7th position, ahead of internationally acclaimed productions like Les Meserables, The Conjuring and Argo.
Chennai Express was in over 3,500 screens in the India and 700 screens abroad including unconventional international markets like Peru and Israel.
Man of Steel, Iron Man 3 and World War Z are the top three leading movies to have grabbed the first three positions in the list!
With this remarkable achievement one can safely say that SRK’s incredible charm has once again proved that when it comes wielding his mega-stardom to best effect, no one quite does the way King Khan does!
