Originally titled Ready Steady Po, Chennai Express broke several box office records in India as well as overseas. The action comedy was the quickest film to cross the coveted 100 crore or 1 billion rupees mark in India. Chennai Express surpassed 3 Idiots to become the highest-grossing Bollywood film worldwide at the time of its release. During paid previews in the UK, Chennai Express collected more than any in the first day of a Bollywood film in the UK.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone are seen in key songs and scenes from the film, including the climax and the very popular song ”Lungi Dance.” The title of the film appears in a very stylized English font at the bottom of each photo still along with “Ready Steady Po!”
