‘Happy New Year’ outshines ‘Chennai Express’!

Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan must be a very happy man indeed! His latest- 'Happy New Year'- is raking in the moolah not just in India but in the overseas market too.

Directed by Farah Khan and produced by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt. Ltd, ‘Happy New Year’ has outdone the Box Office collection of the banner’s previous venture- ‘Chennai Express’.

The company announced today that the India BO collection at the end of the first week of release was Rs. 157.57 Crs. HNY established a new record at the Box Office for opening day and opening weekend.

Venky Mysore, RCE CEO said, “As a production house, it is very gratifying for us that HNY has beaten our own record set by ‘Chennai Express’ in 2013, also a Red Chillies production.”

Gaurav Verma, RCE CRO said, “The response to HNY is overwhelming across the globe. We look forward to the next few weeks as HNY opens in more territories in Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin and North America.”

Interestingly, in ‘Chennai Express’ too, Deepika Padukone was paired opposite King Khan. Both the dimpled stars have proved to be lucky for each other, since all the three films they have done together so far have been blockbusters.
