Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is riding high on the success of his recent release "Chennai Express", is happy over the audience response towards the action comedy.
The Rohit Shetty directorial which hit screens on 9 August, has earned over ₹160 crore worldwide in just four days and continues to do excellent business in both domestic and international box offices. But Shah Rukh said it is the audience response that matters more than the film's earnings.
"If we will only think about the record, then we can sit at home. It happens very rarely that a film is loved like this way and this is what I am liking about the whole thing," he said, according to IANS.
The 47-year-old actor also said that the last time he went into a theatre while the audience was watching his film was for "Chak De! India". "I remember the last film I went and saw in London in theatres was Chak De! India. Before that I saw DDLJ (Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge) in Rajasthan," he said.
"There are some films which make people happy and you like to hear it, feel it... not for any other reason but because it's your product and it feels good to see that people are enjoying it."
"Chennai Express" is Shah Rukh's first release of 2013. The film also stars Deepika Padukone who plays a South Indian girl. The film reunites them for the second time after a gap of six years. They had earlier work together for Farah Khan's 2007 release "Om Shanti Om".
