Q. None of Akshay Kumar films crossed 100 in 2015 due to lack of content but last year SRK starer HNY crossed 200 crore which was even poorer in content but both of them are superstars. How? (Rohan)
Ans. SRK is a much bigger star than Akshay Kumar. Frankly speaking, no one can match the stardom of three Khans except from Hrithik Roshan. And also Baby and Drishaym got huge critical acclaim but they could not even cross 100 crore. So it is not always about the content. The 3 Khans of Bollywood know their audience and fans. They know which film will connect to their core fan base. This thing aparts them from others.
Q. Why Akshay Kumar has not been nominated for Stardust Best Actor Award for Baby and Gabbar is back? (Akash Kapoor)

For example last year Best Actor award was given to Randeep Hooda for Highway instead of Shahid Kapoor. Film of the year was won by Happy New Year and Dream Director by Farah Khan.

Q. After watching trailer and songs which film has more buzz? Dilwale or Bajirao Mastani (Bhupender Sharma)
Ans. The makers of Bajirao Mastani released a teaser first back in July. It could not create that huge buzz or hype. Dilwale trailer was released last month and received mixed response from audience but was loved by trade. After that Bajirao Mastani trailer was released which is undoubtedly the best trailer of 2015.
The pre release buzz was very high at that point for BM. Even there were talks about that Dilwale should change their release date etc. But then came the marketing genius Shahrukh Khan. His team has smartly marketed their film and it has taken over Bajirao Mastani in every platform. They released the first song Gerua which becomes an instant chartbuster. It was followed by a party track which was loved by youth. Janam Janam was an icing on the cake. Takur Takur track will be released soon also.
On the other hand, Bajirao Mastani team does not have anything new to offer except from Malhari track. They have released the song Deewani Mastani too earlier. Actually Eros International has a history of poor marketing.
It was also sensed by Salman Khan at the release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan which was produced by both Salman and Eros. The actor himself planned the marketing strategy and denied Eors’s proposals.
So as for now, Dilwale has a huge edge over Bajirao Mastani in terms of buzz and hype.
