`Chennai Express` a big hit in Karachi

Karachi: The Shahrukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer `Chennai Express` has become a huge hit in Karachi.

The Rohit Shetty directorial movie eclipsed all other releases on Eid day by a big margin in Pakistan, the Dawn newspaper reported Thursday.

"Being Pakistanis, we like to promote our films. Therefore, we ran `Ishq Khuda` for two days but it didn`t attract sufficient audiences," said Aziz Khan, general manager of Capri cinema.

"On the other hand, `Chennai Express` is doing a roaring business from the first show."

Anita Kenneth, head of marketing at Atrium Cinema, added: "From day one ... `Chennai Express` has been sold out."

"It`s a typical Rohit Shetty comedy and masala movie. Then, of course, the glamorous Deepika Padukone is in the movie."
