Q. How much footfalls will Dilwale need to break PK records , If the ticket price will be 20% higher than PK? (Charlie)
Ans. Dilwale needs minimum 3 crore footfalls with higher prices. But remember that PK ticket prices remained high for the whole week as the word of mouth was extremely positive.

Q. After doing string of action- masala movies, Salman came back to family dramas like BB or PRDP. Do u think that after doing these two movies salman will again get a grip over his family audiences and his fan following will escalate in good amount? And also unlike earlier mindless movies, all his upcoming movies look content driven so can he rule for the next 5 or more years? (Prashant Yadav)
Ans. Yes. This is the difference between the three Khans and other Bollywood actors. They have evolved themselves with the time. Salman Khan was doing back to back action films. But when Jai Ho did not do well at the box office, he went back to doing family oriented or content driven films. His fan following will be increased as there will be curiosity among older generation about how Prem will look after so many years.
All the 3 Khans will rule for next 5 to 10 years for sure.

Q. Is daily non stop Twitter trends helps in Movie Promotion before release or it’s just a waste of time? (Souvik Saha)
Ans. It helps a bit to spread awareness about the film. But it does not make much difference to collection as the film will be judged by its content. If it would really help then Shahrukh Khan will be box office king today as his minor news got trended on Twitter.
Q. Please tell me the footfalls of DDLJ ? As Raja Hindustani collected 40 cr in 1996 with 4cr footfalls, so how much footfalls of DDLJ with 60cr at 1995?
Ans. DDLJ footfall was around 3.92 crore while Raja Hindustani footfalls was 4.09 crore. DDLJ has less Footfalls than Raja Hindustani despite it did more business. The reason is Raja Hindustani collected huge in single screens while DDLJ collected more in cities and small towns. That’s why its footfalls are less than Raja Hindustani.
Q. What is the buzz around Tamasha?
Ans. The trailer of the film has been liked by its target audience. There has been strong buzz around the film. Now only thing the film need is super hit music. Ideally they should release Tamasha soundtrack now because we all know that A.R.Rahman music takes some time to grow. This happened with Rockstar too when initially the music was labelled as dull and it could not help much in the opening. But later on the songs from Rockstar took the nation by storm.
