QnA session has now come to an end. You can discuss the answers and write your feedback in the comments section.


Q. Which are the top 10 popular songs of 2016?


Ans. Here are top 5: Soch Na Sake, Sanam Re, Kar Gayi Chull, Jabra Fan, High Heels


Q. I am a big fan of yours articles and I have noticed that you are a box office analyst. So my question is can u guess when Bollywood is going to earn 500cr net collection


Ans. Wait for Dhoom 4.


Q. Your expectations from Salman-Kabir’s next?


Ans. 400 Crore


Q. Top 3 movies of Tollywood in terms of box office collection?


Ans. Baahubali (Prabhas), Srimanthudu (Mahesh Babu), Attarintiki Daredi (Pawan Kalyan)


Q. If Mohenjo-Daro gets a Baahubali kind of appreciation, can it be the 300 cr surprise? As Bahubali Hindi version collected more than 100cr without any Bollywood superstar whereas Mohenjo-Daro has one.


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.


Q. How much percentage do Hollywood movies in India earn out of the total box office?


Ans. Around 10%.


Q. What is your personal opinion about Fan? Have you seen it?


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.


Q. Do you think that The Jungle Book can defeat Airlift if the superb trend continues because Airlift had limited appeal whereas Jungle Book has universal appeal?


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.


Q. Can fan cross 200 crores or does it have a chance to cross 300?


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.


Q. According to you why sultan will not cross 300 cr as the buzz of Sultan is higher then Dangal?


Ans. Considering that Sultan is clashing with Raees.


Q. Which film is releasing on Gandhi Jayanti this year?


Ans. Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s Rangoon on 29 September.


Q. How big is the Hollywood, Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood industries in terms of collections, no of films released per year, % critically acclaimed and % hit movies?


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.


Q. What is the status of Rustom? Will makers be able to finish it in time for their clash against Mohenjo-Daro? Or is there is some possibility of Hrithik’s film getting a solo release?


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.


Q. Is Baahubali 2 and Fast 8 clash averted?


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.


Q. Except Housefull 3 and Hera Pheri 3, has Abhishek Bachchan signed any other movie?


Ans. No


Q. Who is the fittest actor of Bollywood?


Ans. Akshay Kumar


Q. What will be the rank of Airlift in 2016?


Ans. Looking at the trend it can be at number 10-12 spot.


Q. Why the people nowadays started to call entertaining films like Dilwale, PRDP as craps? I can say that these films are not great like Chak De India or Bajarangi Bhaijaan but they are not completely rejected films like Bombay Velvet?


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.



Q. What will be the first day collection of sultan if it comes solo?


Ans. 30-35 Crore considering the pre-Eid period.


Q. Is there any chance for SRK to release Imtiaz Ali next and Dwarf movie next year?


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.


Q. If Ki and Ka gross 45 crores will be a hit?


Ans. The film has already become a hit.


Q. Top 5 single screen superstars?


Ans. Salman, Shahrukh, Aamir, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan


Q. Top 5 multiplex superstars


Ans. Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor


Q. Is there any way to get the real budget of a movie? Because Robot 2 is reported to cost 350 cr and some people are saying that its fake nd its only for publicity?


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.


Q. Which three superstars of Tollywood (south) have popularity like three Khans?


Ans. Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Jr. N.T.R and Prabhas


Q. According to you which movie can do 300 cr in 2016?


Ans. Dangal


Q. Can Raees vs Sultan be averted?


Ans. Yes. As per our sources, the clash will be averted.


Q. Expected opening day collection of Housefull 3?


Ans. 20-22 crore with hit music


Q. What are insider reports for Fan?


Ans. The insider reports cannot be trusted.


Q. What are your expectations from Udta Punjab?


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.


Q. Describe three Khans in three different words?


Ans. Aamir Genious,

Salman Superstar,

SRK King.


Q. Will this lawsuit be going to effect Kangana Ranaut career?


Ans. No. It will only get her more publicity.


Q. Can The Jungle Book affect on Fan collection in its 2nd week due to a strong start?


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).


Q. How is the Advance Booking for FAN?


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.


Q. When will Deepika Padukone come back?


Ans. Ask Ranveer


Q. Is it true that Salman Khan is doing Makkhi 2?


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.


Q. Can Azhar Cross 100 cr?


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.
