Q. SRK has been very successful and far ahead above all when his films clashes with big stars and as for now he has Dilwale clash with Bajirao Mastani this year and next year SRK’s Raees clashes with Sultan. Do you think that it is time for srk to prove why he is called king? (Bigyan Thapa)
Ans. He has proved it already. If we talk about consistency then no one even came close to SRK as he has been ruling since 1990’s. The other actors have gone through rough phases but this is not the case with Shahrukh. He has now delivered 11 hits in a row, a feat which no present actor has achieved. Though in recent time, Salman and Aamir has gone ahead in terms of box office collection. But SRK only need a right film at a right time. Dilwale can prove to be that film.

Q. What is the budget of Singh Is Bling?

Q. We expected that Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will enter in 300 crore club sharing status with PK but Bajrangi Bhaijaan did so! Now what will you expect from PRDP? Can it cross 400 crore? (Hasnain)
Ans. When PK went on to cross 300 crore, then it was thought that this record will not be broken for next few years. But within 6 months, Bajrangi Bhaijaan almost did so. The box office is very unpredictable. Though to cross 400 crore a film should have Earth shattering opening and then it should sustain for 5-6 weeks.
It is very difficult to predict about PRDP as it can go either way. But the film has two main hurdles in its way. First it will have competition at the box office and second it may have limited appeal among youth. Considering these factors 400 looks tough.
Q. Which is Ajay Devgn’s next movie?. And is Drishyam is a Hit or Flop? (Shivam Deep)

Q. Why very few songs become huge chartbuster like Tum Hi Ho, Galliyan etc ? Is there any shortage in creativity inside music composers because not a single song of this year have become huge hit? Can we expect Tere Naam type blockbuster songs from PRDP? (Prashant Yadav)
Ans. Most of music directors fear to experiment with their songs (except few like A.R.Rahman). Aashiqui 2 was a full fledged romantic album after a long time so it become a huge hit. After the success of its music, many romantic songs on the same feel were released. This year Jeena Jeena from Badlapur was a huge hit and ruled the music charts for many weeks. Similarly Roy had also chartbuster songs.
Tere Naam and PRDP are two completely different films. But if you are talking about popularity then we can expect chartbuster songs from PRDP too.

Q. Why Baby, Gabbar & Holiday are only hit & not collected over 150 crore whereas TWMR almost do so? (Mayank)

Q. Tell me the exact release date of PRDP because some websites showing 11th Nov and some 12 and Diwali is on 11th? (Umer)
Ans. As for now PRDP is scheduled to release on 12 November. But there are reports that it can also release on 11th. The official confirmation will be made in a few days.
Q. If Dilwale release on 18th December and Bajirao Mastani same day or 25th of december how much screens will have Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale? (Being Zahid Sahar)
Ans. It is too early to talk about this. Though Bajirao Mastani will have an edge in single screens. As the distributor Eros has a deal with them during the release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. If both the films are released on the same day then the screen count can be 3000 for Dilwale and 2000 for Bajirao Mastani. But if BM release on 25 then screen count can be 2800 for Bajirao and 2200 for Dilwale. These are just estimates and situation will be clear from next month when promotions will start.
