‘Chennai Express’ has moved at such a breakneck speed that it blew apart all previous records set by some of the most popular movies of Hindi film industry. The rollicking speed of the ‘train’ has left behind Aamir Khan’s ‘3 Idiots,’ Salman Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and Farhan Akhtar’s smash-hit biopic ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.’

Even before its release, ‘Chennai Express’ scripted another record by becoming the first ever movie to earn highest through paid preview. The movie collected Rs 6.74 crore on Thursday during the paid preview and this record was so far held by Aamir Khan’s ‘3 Idiots’ which had earned Rs 2.75 crore.

It is worth mentioning that a successful paid preview can’t be equated to the movie’s success. Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kites’ also made a fluent start through paid preview by earning Rs 1.75 crore but eventually fell flat at the Box Office.
