    When will Vidya work with Shah Rukh Khan?

    Actress Vidya Balan, who has always expressed her desire to work with superstar Shah Rukh Khan, says she would love to work with Shah Rukh provided both the actors` presence in the film is justified.

    "If any good script comes where the presence of both the actors (Shah Rukh and I) is justified, then definitely I would love to do," Vidya said here Friday at the launch of the blog for her upcoming film "Bobby Jasoos".

    "If the script will be such where I won`t have much to do, then I will not do it," she added.

    The 36-year-old is currently busy promoting her soon to release "Bobby Jasoos", where she is in the lead role.

    Asked if there is anything left for actresses to do in films starring Bollywood`s Khans, the National Award winning actress said: "Not always...but most of the times there is nothing much to do."

    Directed by Samar Sheikh, produced by Dia Mirza and her fiance Sahil Sangha, "Bobby Jasoos" also features Ali Fazal. It will hit the theatres July 4.

    Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone Chennai Express mints Rs33.12 crore on Opening DAY

    Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared that the collective figures minted by the movie on Thursday and Friday in India amounted to Rs39.87 crore nett.

    Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone-starrer Chennai Express is chugging on with immense steam at the box office. The film recorded an opening day collection of Rs33.12 crore, say trade experts, and it is expected to do well across national and international quarters over the weekend.

    Heavy promotions for the Rohit Shetty directorial, coupled with a release on an auspicious occasion like Eid-ul-Fitr Friday, seem to have paid off. Even before the release, the buzz for the movie was strong, giving it a collection of Rs. 6.75 crore in the home country from paid previews on Thursday itself.

    "We've received an overwhelming response from all quarters and the film is being loved by everyone," Gaurav Verma, director — India theatrical distribution, Studios, Disney UTV.

    "Though Chennai Express is playing in highest number of screens for any film, we still ran out of capacity in most locations due to this huge demand at the box office and the film is on its way to create new benchmarks," added Verma.

    Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared that the collective figures minted by the movie on Thursday and Friday in India amounted to Rs39.87 crore nett.

    Said to have been made at a budget of Rs. 70 crore, Chennai Express had a grand release in over 3,500 screens in the country and 700 screens abroad.

    The advance bookings for the film were strong, said Girish Wankhede of Cinemax chain.

    "It's doing very well. On Thursday, there were 80 to 90 percent occupancy of seats. Advance booking was strong for this weekend. It will do very well in coming weeks also," Wankhede said.

    Down south also, the movie has received a good response.

    Trade analyst Trinath shared: "This is probably the best ever opening for a SRK film in the state. Even though people voiced about the stereotyping in Chennai Express, none had any issues with it and embraced it with a smile."

    In the film, Shah Rukh plays a north Indian, who falls in love with a Tamil girl, essayed by his Om Shanti Om co-star Deepika.

    The number of shows were doubled in Chennai for Chennai Express as Tamil movie Thalaivaa didn't release there.

    "Since Thalaivaa didn't release, the number of shows for Chennai Express were doubled (on Friday). We had about 95 percent occupancy for the paid previews and most shows over the weekend are booked," a multiplex representative in Chennai, said.

    Mumbai-based trade analyst Komal Nahta didn't find the film as entertaining as Shetty's previous films like the Golmaal series, but he didn't deny that the movie indeed got a "fantastic start" in India.

    Internationally too, the film is said to be doing well.

    In the Gulf region, it released Thursday and minted $435,000, with 28 screens yet to report. But it is estimated to cross $550,000 by the time all screens report, said a source.

    In Singapore, two screens are yet to report, but it made $95,359 on Thursday.

    Chennai Express, an action comedy, had only night show previews in Britain Thursday, numbers are 142,220 pounds with three sites yet to report.

    In Australia, the paid previews Thursday amounted to $34,314, while in New Zealand, the figures came to $6,431.

    Adarsh shared on Twitter that the movie took a "huge start in US-Canada", earning $2,60,000 (Rs.15, 776,020.00 approximately) out of Thursday night preview shows.

    Officials at UTV Motion Pictures, which has co-produced the potboiler with Shah Rukh's Red Chillies Entertainment, are happy.
