Today, Chennai Express celebrates three years of release.
Everyone loves Chennai Express...okay, everyone loved Chennai Express before Shah Rukh Khan tried to do an encore with Happy New Year, and failed to raise the same barrel of laughs!
Chennai Express was one of the two collaborations Shah Rukh Khan had with Rohit Shetty, the other being Dilwale. Rohit Shetty was then known to work with Ajay Devgn giving blockbuster hits with him like the Golmaal franchise, All The Best and Singham. SRK broke that partnership, by making Rohit sign on to direct Chennai Express. And the rest, as the cliched saying goes, is history!
Deepika Padukone played the female interest in the film, Meenamma, which happened to be one of the best roles that she did in her illustrious career.

Today, eminent photographer Avinash Gowariker who did the publicity stills for the film, had tweeted a pic from the sets, where he was held on 'gunpoint' by Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Rohit Shetty. He also captioned the pic '3 years to one of my favourite film publicity shoots!'
Such a happy picture, isn't it? It's really unfortunate that the middling business of Dilwale has called a fallout between Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty, and the latter has moved back to Ajay Devgn camp.
