By Abid, Glamsham EditorialThe seemingly un-surmountable record of Rajkumar Hirani's Aamir Khan starrer 3 IDIOTS is all set to be bettered by Rohit Shetty's Shahrukh Khan starrer CHENNAI EXPRESS.
Just to recall, in 2009 3 IDIOTS achieved the distinction of being the first film in the history of Hindi cinema to have crossed the 200 crore figure. The film ended its run netting 202 crore from India. Yes, one cannot help but mention that Salman Khan's EK THA TIGER looked like beating 3 IDIOTS but just fell short, though it managed to be the second film to touch the 200 crore figure.
Coming back to the present, it is now certain that SRK's CHENNAI EXPRESS, which has already netted more than 190 crores, will cross Aamir Khan's 3 IDIOTS next week. It will be interesting to see by how much.
Having said that, as the adage goes, records are meant to be broken, and two upcoming releases, Hrithik Roshan's KRRISH 3 and Aamir Khan's DHOOM 3 may just reset the bar higher, fingers crossed!
