QnA session has now come to an end. You can discuss the answers and write your feedback in the comments section.
Ans. Here are top 5: Soch Na Sake, Sanam Re, Kar Gayi Chull, Jabra Fan, High Heels
Ans. Wait for Dhoom 4.
Ans. 400 Crore
Ans. Baahubali (Prabhas), Srimanthudu (Mahesh Babu), Attarintiki Daredi (Pawan Kalyan)
Ans. It will be a rare scenario if any of the films gets Baahubali kind of appreciation (as it was the first Indian film to have such amazing VFX). But one thing is sure that Mohenjo Daro is super hot in trade. Hrithik is coming back after two years and this genre is also doing well recently. So 200 crore can be achieved with the combo of solid content and marketing.
Ans. Around 10%.
Ans. No how can we see this before release? Most probably we will get to see this on 13th April as there can be a special screening in Dubai. But if it does not happen then on Thursday.
Ans. With this trend, it will cross 100 crores and may even beat Airlift. But the big hurdle is the release of Fan next week. So it will be tough to do so unless Fan turns out a dud.
Ans. Fan is not a masala film and is releasing on non-holiday. So the film is not targeting 300 crores. It will be considered a huge success if it does a business of 180-200 crore. 160-180 will be a good result while anything below that will be a disappointment.
Ans. Considering that Sultan is clashing with Raees.
Ans. Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s Rangoon on 29 September.
Ans. We need more space to answer this question as it will need a separate article. But you cannot compare Hollywood with any other industry. English is the universal language so Hollywood films are released in every corner of the world. In terms of releases, Bollywood may be ahead of Hollywood. While in all other factors you mentioned, Hollywood is way ahead of Bollywood. Can’t say much about Tollywood and Kollywood.
Ans. Akshay Kumar is known for his quick work so Rustom will be wrapped up soon. The clash is almost certain as the makers of Rustom have already started marketing.
Ans. It is too early to talk about that. But most probably it will be averted as Fast 8 can release one week earlier in India.
Ans. Akshay Kumar
Ans. Looking at the trend it can be at number 10-12 spot.
Ans. It is fans who spread negativity about films of other actors. Especially in the case of Shahrukh and Salman (remember Pray for PRDP and Dar Gaye Dilwale trend). Plus there are some so-called critics who call these films craps and create a perception in the media. Dilwale crossed $26 million in overseas. Do you think they are dumb people? Similarly, PRDP was a huge hit in mass centers and also shattered all TRP records. Dilwale and PRDP may not be classics but they were decent entertainers.
Ans. 30-35 Crore considering the pre-Eid period.
Ans. Imtiaz Ali takes a lot of time in completing his films. So most probably only Aanand L Rai’s next will be released next year on Christmas.
Ans. The film has already become a hit.
Ans. Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan
Ans. Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor
Ans. Unfortunately, there is no other reliable source to get the real budget. But Robot 2 budget cannot be 350 crores as it will make the recovery almost impossible. South producers always manipulate figures of budget and collections.
Ans. Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Jr. N.T.R and Prabhas
Ans. Yes. As per our sources, the clash will be averted.
Ans. 20-22 crore with hit music
Ans. The insider reports cannot be trusted.
Ans. It is a niche film and will only appeal to a limited audience. Plus Shahid Kapoor is not a big crowd puller. Though the presence of Diljit Dosanjh will ensure solid initials in North India where he is a megastar. We are expecting the film to collect in the range of 50 crores.
Ans. Aamir Genious,
Ans. No. It will only get her more publicity.
Ans. The Jungle Book will affect Fan only if the later receives a mixed and negative response. But if Fan receives thumbs up from audience then both films will sail through. For example Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan were released back to back but both emerged bit hits. (Baahubali Hindi version crossed 100 crores).
Ans. Today is the first day so the advance booking is pretty much low. And also, this is not a festival release so we are not expecting a huge turnaround for advance.
Ans. Ask Ranveer
Ans. The writer of Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, K. V Parsad has claimed that Salman is doing Makkhi 2. After Bajrangi Bhaijaan, there was a news that K. V Parsad is writing an another story for Salman. But it looks like that this film will take a long time before it happens.
Ans. Emraan Hashmi’s last seven films have failed to cross even 40 crores. So Azhar has no realistic shot at 100 crores. An ideal target should be 70 crores. Though the trailer has been liked and also the first song has become an instant chartbuster. That will help to get initials but it should have solid content to become a success.
