We are sure you’ve already read about the success of the blockbuster hit Chennai Express. It’s been three months since the movie was released and it’s still making waves. Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who is the leading lady of the film, put her Ram-Leela promotional duties aside for an evening as she celebrated its success (yet again) with fellow actor Shahrukh Khan at a Zee TV party in Mumbai, India on November 6, 2013.

The reason for this party? The film was broadcast on the channel and a whopping 55 million viewers tuned in to watch it. Even if you consider that there are a billion people in this country, that’s still a pretty huge number.
The stars of the film got together with TV actors who regularly feature on Zee TV serials. Shahrukh cut a huge cake and popped a bottle of bubbly to get the party started.
