Zee TV hosts success bash of 'Chennai Express'
Zee TV organised a success bash to celebrate the record breaking television premiere of 'Chennai Express' on October 20.
Zee TV reportedly coughed up Rs 50 crore for acquiring satellite rights of the highest revenue grosser of the year 'Chennai Express', and the film has brought the channel a good rating.
"There was a lot of responsibility. They took the film at a high price, and not at what the rumours say. It was an expensive film. We don't understand how it performs on TV but the team of Zee TV said they were happy and may be because of the film they are number one now," Shah Rukh said at the bash.
The 48-year-old actor further said that "Money has never been the criteria. 'Chennai Express' is over now, new films will come, and records will be broken."
The actor also said it is not necessary that a film doing well at box office also fares well on TV.
"There are few films which do good on TV as well as theatres. Our director Rohit Shetty has a good track record on TV. We feel happy for the team of Zee," he said.
Deepika Padukone, Rohit Shetty, Sushant Singh Rajput, Sonu Sood and Alka Yagnik among others were also present at the success bash.
