Its Q&A session. We will try to answer as many questions as possible. Please avoid asking the same questions every time.
Q. Which is the best film of this decade in terms of content, public appreciation and box office performance? (Mayur)
Ans. So far Aamir Khan’s PK is the best film of this decade as it found huge appreciation among public and it had repeat value. It will be followed by Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. There were other films like Barfi, Queen, Kahaani, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Haider etc but they all had limited appeal.
Q. How much Dilwale needs to collect to become a hit? (Suyash)
Ans. The film should collect in the range of 160-170 crore to become a hit. It will become super hit at 200 crore. Despite the underperformance of the film, the makers have already made decent profits. And it is distributors who have to suffer from huge losses.
Q. Which movie has better word of mouth PK or Bajrangi Bhaijaan? (Anant Tiwari)
Ans. PK had a slight edge over Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The ticket prices of PK were hiked for the whole first week.
Q. As Dilwale losses against BM, now does Sultan has an edge over Raees? (Mandy)
Ans. Of course Sultan has the lead over Raees. Shahrukh Khan starrer has only one advantage that its teaser was received very well. Sultan teaser or trailer is yet to be revealed so we have no idea how the film looks like.
Q. Bollyarena, Which is your favourite actor?
Ans. We love and respect all actors equally. An individual’s opinion would be irrelevant as it is a team work.
Q. The trailer of PRDP and Dilwale were released 40 days before release. Fan and Raees trailer are out long time before their release. Do you think it is right decision? Could Fan suffer in between Dilwale and Raees. Also it is releasing in non holiday period and IPL time.
Ans. The trailer release date will not make any difference if your product is up to the mark. But if you are not confident then it should be released 30-40 days before the film hit the screens.
As for Fan is concerned, Shahrukh Khan has himself said the he does not think that it will be a blockbuster. So he is also expecting something over 100 crore. IPL period will not affect much as this year Gabbar Is Back, Piku and Tanu Weds Manu Returns were released in this period.
Q. Can Dilwale break the record of PK in overseas if it releases in China? (Pratik)
Ans. Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year was released in China and performed poor there. So it is very unlikely that Dilwale will be a big success in China. Though it can become highest overseas grosser for Shahrukh Khan and claim 5th position.
Q. What are upcoming movies of Ranveer Singh in 2016 except Befikre (Rahul)
Ans. He has not signed anything officially expect Befikre. He is in talks with Aanand L.Rai (Tanu Weds Manu Returns director) for a film.
Q. Do you think Robot 2 will break all possible records? (Awad Saeed)
Ans. It will be too early to talk about that. Rajinikanth’s last two films Lingaa and Kochaidiyaan have not done that well at the box office. The director Shnakar last film “I” was a decent success only. Though the sequel factor will bring strong initials. The presence of Akshay Kumar will ensure good run in Hindi belts. The ideal opening day should be over 50 crore.
Q. Who is more popular in India among 3 Khans? (Pravin)
Ans. Kamal R Khan :-P
Q. Can it be said now that overseas supremacy of SRK is over and Salman and Aamir are equally big now? (Avijit)
Ans. No. Shahrukh Khan has still 5 films in the top 10 highest overseas grossers. A mediocre film like Dilwale is breaking records in overseas. Fan can also prove to be a major game changer in overseas. It will probably take more time before anyone can replace him. Though Aamir Khan is quickly covering the gap.
Q. Will Abbas-Mustan direct any another action flick? (Vickveer)
Ans. Probably Race 3.
Q. Who will win box office battle between Dilwale and Bajiro Mastani? (Ali)
Ans. Bajirao Mastani will lead in India and Dilwale in overseas. Overall winner is Bajirao Mastani.
Q. What was the verdict of Desi Boys? (Sunny)
Ans. It collected around 47 crore and was a below average.
